Abstract

IN ENGLISH: In this paper, we explore the relationship between personality, right-wing authoritarianism (RWA), social dominance orientation (SDO) and anti-immigrant prejudice of Croatian youth (N = 1050). We base our hypotheses on the Dual-process motivational model of ideology and prejudice (DPM) and the meta-theoretical framework of McCrae and Costa’s five-factor theory of personality (FFT), assuming that dispositions (basic tendencies) relate to ideological attitudes (characteristic adaptations) that further relate to prejudice (objective biography). The present study contributes to the existing literature by disentangling the mechanism of the personality-prejudice relation in thus far under-researched anti-immigrant prejudice domain. In addition, as one of the rare examinations of the personality-prejudice relation conducted outside the Western Europe and North America, the study offers valuable insight about the cross-cultural stability of the current findings. On the present sample, extraversion and openness to experience exerted direct effects on anti-immigrant prejudice. Indirect effects via RWA were found for extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness, and indirect effects via SDO were found for agreeableness, neuroticism and openness. Intriguingly, indirect effects of agreeableness on prejudice via RWA and SDO operated in opposite directions. Overall, the results support the DPM and FFT assumptions and provide fair replication of the existing empirical evidence. -------------- IN CROATIAN: Rad istražuje odnos između ličnosti, desne autoritarnosti, orijentacije na socijalnu dominaciju i predrasuda prema imigrantima na uzorku mladih osoba iz Hrvatske (N = 1050). Osnovne hipoteze temelje se na postavkama dvoprocesnog kognitivno-motivacijskog modela ideologije i predrasuda te meta-teorijskog okvira pet-faktorske teorije ličnosti McCraea i Costae, koja pretpostavlja da su dispozicije (kao bazične tendencije) povezane s ideološkim varijablama (kao karakterističnim adaptacijama) koje su nadalje povezane s predrasudama (kao objektivnom biografijom). Rad doprinosi postojećoj literaturi istraživanjem mehanizama odnosa ličnosti i predrasuda u dosad nedovoljno istraženoj domeni predrasuda prema imigrantima. Osim toga, kao jedno od rijetkih istraživanja odnosa ličnosti i predrasuda provedeno izvan Zapadne Europe i Sjeverne Amerike, istraživanje pruža vrijedan uvid u međukulturalnu stabilnost postojećih nalaza. Na aktualnom uzorku, ekstraverzija i otvorenost prema iskustvu bile su izravno povezane s predrasudama prema imigrantima. Neizravni efekti povezanosti s predrasudama posredovani putem desne autoritarnosti pronađeni su za ekstraverziju, ugodnost, savjesnost i otvorenost prema iskustvu. Neizravni efekti povezanosti s predrasudama posredovani putem orijentacije na socijalnu dominaciju pronađeni za ugodnost, neuroticizam i otvorenost prema iskustvu. Zanimljivo je da su neizravni efekti koje ugodnost putem desne autoritarnosti i orijentacije na socijalnu dominaciju ima na predrasude prema imigrantima djelovali u suprotnim smjerovima. Sveukupno, rezultati podupiru pretpostavke dvoprocesnog kognitivno-motivacijskog modela ideologije i predrasuda te pet-faktorske teorije ličnosti te osiguravaju vjernu replikaciju postojećih empirijskih nalaza.
