Emotional Traits Among Young Male and Female Kuwaitis

Auther : Bader M. Al-ansari

Using the Differential Emotion Scale (DES), thirty emotional traits were measured in a group of 2,067 young Kuwaitis. The DES was administered with a trait instruction orientation to 1,129 secondary school students (350 male and 779 female), and 938 undergraduates from Kuwait University (306 male and 632 female). Results show that shame, shyness, anger, sadness, fear, embarrassment, depression, remorse, and disdain were most common among young Kuwaitis of both sexes. Moreover, significant gender differences are reported regarding remorse, depression, fear, anger, sadness, shyness, shame, surprise, contempt, concentration, astonishment, disdain, blame, and awe. Eight factors were extracted from responses of males, and seven from responses of females. Implications and limitations of the results are discussed.

Key words: Personality, Personality assessment, Individual differences, Gender differences, Emotional traits, Differential Emotion Scale (DES).
