ABSTRACT

A growing body of research was conducted after Higgins (1997) proposed Regulatory Focus Theory which consists of a promotion focus and a prevention focus. Both of them have been reported to influence behaviors, but it is unclear how they would be related. The present study, thus, investigated how personality traits are related to the regulatory foci. The Korean Regulatory Focus Questionnaire (K-RFQ) and the Korean version of the HEXACO were used to measure the self-regulatory foci and personality traits, respectively. The results showed that promotion focus was significantly associated with eXtraversion and Conscientiousness and that prevention focus was significantly associated with Openness to experience. These results are expected to provide a basic framework of the personality traits and the self-regulatory focus.
