Abstract

This study aims to demonstrate whether a selection of supplied personality constructs based on Lee and Ashton’s (2004) HEXACO model can be used to effectively understand a range of self roles, with a comparison of how more specific interpersonal roles (me with friends, me with family, me when studying) differ in their relationship to exploration and well-being outcomes when compared to more abstract self roles (me generally, me as I would like to be). A sample of 41 participants were recruited via opportunity sampling of undergraduate students at the University of West London (UWL) during 2018. 35 participants were female, with 6 being male, mean age of the sample was 24.17. Variables measured include the interpersonal self role ratings for the supplied personality constructs, comfortable and experimental behaviour styles, curiosity/exploration and measures of well-being including satisfaction with life, positive affect, and negative affect. The findings supported distinct interpersonal roles being present based on supplied construct data (in support of Churchyard et al., 2013), but with overlap between some self roles where consistency in trait behaviour is generally tied into better psychological functioning. In terms of considering patterns unique to concrete interpersonal selves and more abstract selves, whilst many correlations patterns with behaviour style and wellbeing measures were similar between the me generally and more specific interpersonal roles, the specific interpersonal self roles could then be used to pick out which aspects of the self were contributing to these relationships. For example, Me generally (Openness to Experience) was negatively correlated with Negative affect, but the main concrete interpersonal role that correlated negatively was Me when studying specifically.
