Abstract (Swedish)
The primary purpose of this study was to establish an interaction effect between effortful control and neuroticism on problem‐solving coping. The secondary purpose was to examine the relationships between all three variables by establishing a correlation matrix. The sample consisted of 64 individuals, 18‐25 years old. The scores on the variables neuroticism and effortful control were used to create four different subtypes with high and low combination of the two variables. A two‐way ANOVA showed no significant interaction effect and no main effect of the two variables on problem‐solving coping. The correlation matrix showed a medium strong correlation between effortful control and problem‐solving coping. The low
reliability for the scales... (More)
