Abstract

The concept of trust founds its way from sociological and psychological research to business and economic research. Societal trust was measured using a dichotomous question. Later research used the two statements as separate items because answers to them are not truly opposite. The aim of this paper is to investigate if gender and personality traits influence rating of these two statements. Big Five Inventory-10 is used to measure personality traits. The research was conducted in Slovakia using an on-line questionnaire. This paper is a replication of two previous studies conducted in Denmark. Agreeableness significantly influenced the first measure in both previous studies. In one study, agreeableness influenced also the second measure, while neuroticism had a borderline significant impact on the first measure. In the other study, neuroticism had a borderline significant impact on the second measure.
