Relationship between Personality Traits and Emotion Regulation Strategies for Chinese College Students
Keywords:Emotion Regulation Strategies, Cognitive Reappraisal, Expressive Suppression, The Seven-Factor Chinese Personality Scale (QZPS-SF)
To explore the relationship between personality and emotion regulation strategies in Chinese college students, a total of 426 subjects completed Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ) and the Seven-Factor Chinese Personality Scale (QZPS-SF). Cognitive reappraisal significantly correlated with all the seven dimensions of Chinese personality, while expressive suppression only significantly correlated with extroversion, emotionality, kindness. Path analysis showed that human relations, ways of life and kindness could predict cognitive reappraisal, and kindness, emotionality could predict expressive suppression. Personality traits could predict emotion regulation strategies significantly.
