Abstract [en]

This thesis examines how risk taking and type of personality is connected. Using the HEXACO personality test to determine which type of person the respondents are. The thesis define risk taking from both civilian literature as well as military literature. The purpose for this thesis being to map the connection between risk taking and type of personality. In the long run the thesis aims to be able to discuss which individuals should serve in specific positions when their risk taking is accounted for. 

 

Previous studies lack a clear military alignment towards a tactical level. These studies have studied risk in a military context but then connected with civilian research and not on a tactical, and more hands-on level. HEXACO and risk taking have been studied together in previous studies but in a civilian context. This thesis aims to tie these two areas of research together.

 

The result of the analysis gave no answer that was statistically significant. The factors from HEXACO analyzed was H, X, C and O. The E and A factor were not analyzed due to lack of research on which to build hypothesis. A correlation between the H-factor from HEXACO and risk taking can be observed but it was not statistically significant. The area needs more research which should mainly be aimed at the H-factor in relation to risk taking.
