- The purpose of the present study was to explore the relationship between environmental variables including environmental attitudes, environmental sensitivity, and environmental behaviors, and the Big 5 personality traits of children. Thus, the relationship in a sample of 279 elementary school students was examined using correlation and multi-regression analysis. The results of this study revealed that environmental variables were positively correlated with the personality traits, indicating that the relationship in boys were much higher than in girls. Regression results indicated that the envi- ronmental variables can be significantly predicted by the Big 5 personality traits and conscientiousness is the trait most strongly linked to environmental sensitivity and behavior. However, the amount of the variance explained by personality seemed to be different between gender and was likely to decrease with school year.
