ABSTRACT

The purposes of this study were to develop the sibling relations questionnaire for college students and to examine the relationships of sibling relations, personality traits and psychopathological symptoms with college students. The questionnaire with 30 items developed in this study involved 2 factors, warmth and conflict and had good psychometric properties. Results suggested that the quality of sibling relations were associated with personality traits, especially extroversion and agreeableness could predict sibling relations of men and women and conscientiousness and neuroticism were able to predict women's and openness to experience to men's sibling relations. Also warmth was only related with paranoia of men, but conflict was associated with 9 psychopathological symptoms of men and women. Intrestingly women with more conflict in sibling relations had significantly more psychopathological symptoms than men with more conflict.
