Özet

Purpose: The factors related with resilience, which is an important element of positive psychology, are still being discussed. The main purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the resilience levels of individuals in emerging adulthood and the big five personality traits. Research Methods: Using a quantitative approach, the present study has been conducted based on a correlational descriptive model. The study group consists of 392 undergraduate students. The participants were selected through a purposeful sampling method. The participants were asked to fill out personal information forms and the Resilience Scale for Adults and take an Adjective-Based Personality Test. The correlation, t-test and multiple linear regression analyses were conducted to establish the relationships between the variables. Findings: As a result of the analyses, relationships were established between the sub-dimensions of resilience and the sub-dimensions of big five personality traits at various levels that appeared to support the body of literature.
