Psychosocial Well-Being and a Multicultural Personality Disposition
Brummett, Bradley R.; Wade, Jay C.; Ponterotto, Joseph G.; Thombs, Brett; Lewis, Charles
Journal of Counseling & Development, v85 n1 p73-81 Win 2007
This study examined the relationship between psychosocial well-being and a multicultural personality disposition in undergraduates (N = 124). Measures of universal-diverse orientation, hardiness, psychosocial-interpersonal functioning, self-esteem, and political correctness ideology were administered. Results indicated that the multicultural personality disposition of universal-diverse orientation significantly predicted psychological hardiness, psychosocial-interpersonal functioning, and self-esteem beyond the influence of politically correct responding. These findings suggest that having a multicultural personality disposition (universal-diverse orientation) may be positively related to psychosocial well-being.
