Personality Distance and Economic Activity

Warianty tytułu
Dystans osobowościowy a aktywność ekonomiczna
Języki publikacji
Building on the similarity-attraction hypothesis I examine whether differences in the personalities of inhabitants from interacting countries affect the level of economic activity between them. To do this I investigate whether both aggregated and nonaggregated differences in personality scores of average inhabitants from two countries have the potential to explain variation in the level of trade, foreign portfolio investment, mergers and acquisitions, and cross-listings between these countries. Results show that only the number of cross-listings is negatively and statistically significantly related to personality distance. I discuss possible reasons for the lack of support (in general) for the hypothesized relationship.(original abstract)
Na podstawie teorii przyciągania podobieństw badam w pracy, czy różnice osobowościowe między mieszkańcami różnych państw mają wpływ na skalę aktywności ekonomicznej między krajami. W tym celu badam, czy zagregowane i niezagregowane różnice w osobowości przeciętnych mieszkańców dwóch krajów stanowią determinantę skali handlu, inwestycji portfelowych, fuzji i przejęć, oraz cross-listingu między nimi. Wyniki wskazują, że jedynie liczba operacji cross-listingu ma negatywny i statystycznie istotny związek z dystansem osobowościowym. W artykule przedyskutowano kilka możliwych powodów braku wsparcia (patrząc całościowo) dla przedstawionej hipotezy.(abstrakt oryginalny)
