  • TITLE: Big Five Personality Traits and Occupy Wall Street

    AUTHORS: Costas Panagopoulos, Jonathan M. Lehrfeld

    KEYWORDS: Big Five, Political Behavior, Protesters, TIPI, Personality

    JOURNAL NAME: Psychology, Vol.6 No.15, December 3, 2015

    ABSTRACT: We investigated Big Five personality traits for a novel sample of individuals engaged in politically and economically-charged protest activity at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York City. We gathered data about protesters’ personality traits by administering the TIPI battery in a survey conducted in October 2011. We compared distributions of Big Five traits for the sample with population norms. We expected our sample to show higher levels of extraversion, openness, and emotional stability, and lower levels of agreeableness, compared to norms, with no difference in conscientiousness. We found mixed support for our hypotheses: our sample showed higher levels of emotional stability and extraversion, lower levels of agreeableness, and no differences in conscientiousness, but lower levels of openness.
