Models and relationship quality in dating couples
Past research on the association between individual characteristics and close relationship quality has taken either an individual or a dyadic approach (Luo et al., 2008).
The individual approach aims to examine the link between self and/or partner characteristics (e.g., personality) and relationship quality.
Meanwhile, although previous studies on the relationship between personality and relationship quality have used both individual samples and dyadic samples among marriage cohorts (Holland and Roisman, 2008; Dyrenforth et al., 2010; Mund and Neyer, 2014), the changing life stages, demands, and expectations outside the intimate relationship may lead to different effects on personality (Shiota and Levenson, 2007), so it is necessary to dedicate the research on the effect of personality on emerging adults’ romantic relationships.
Thus, this study provided new knowledge on the emerging adults of an emerging country. Personality structure and interpersonal problems: a theoretically-guided tem analysis of the inventory of interpersonal problems. doi: 10.1177/1073191195002004005 Cross Ref Full Text | Google Scholar Hall, J.
This study tested emerging adult couples’ openness and its fit effect on their romantic relationship quality using quadratic polynomial regression and response surface analysis. Both dyads’ openness and relationship quality were measured.
Secondly, numerous studies have explored the effect of personality on determining relationship quality and found consistent crucial effects of neuroticism and some protective effects of conscientiousness, agreeableness, and extraversion (Furler et al., 2014; Mund and Neyer, 2014; Schaffhuser et al., 2014a). doi: 10.1111/j.1475-6811.1999.tb00206.x Cross Ref Full Text | Google Scholar Gurtman, M.
In this study, we focused on the openness personality trait to predict the dating emerging adults’ relationship quality.
Openness can further be divided into openness to creative intellect experiences and psychological openness in the motivational, social, and emotional systems (Mc Crae and Sutin, 2009; Woo et al., 2014).
In the conceptualization of openness, intrapsychic aspects such as the intellect and perception have been primarily emphasized (Deyoung et al., 2012; Deyoung, 2015). Adolescent academic achievement and romantic relationships.
