Cultural orientation of Czech Vietnamese with different generation status
Chvojková, Petra ; Hřebíčková, Martina
The aim of the study was to compare domains of Czech and Vietnamese cultural orientations in the three samples of Vietnamese Czechs differing in generational status (N = 430, 58% woman, in age 12 - 68 years, M = 20.58 years, SD = 7.5 years). Cultural orientations were measured using General Ethnicity Questionnaire (GEQ, Tsai et al., 2000) with 37 items measuring Czech and Vietnamese cultural orientations. We conducted explanatory factor analyses with subsequent Varimax rotation and six factors were extracted in both versions of GEQ (e.g. Language, Cultural pride, Media, Cultural preference, Exposure, Language and Cultural preference). Analyses of variance by groups and Scheffé post hoc test was conducted to find differences in domains of cultural orientation in three groups of Vietnamese Czechs.
Cultural Orientation of Czech Vietnamese
Chvojková, P. ; Hřebíčková, Martina
The aim of the study was to compare Czech and Vietnamese cultural orientations in the sample of 430 Czech Vietnamese, 58 % women, aged between 12 and 68 years (M = 20.58 years, SD = 7.5 years). Cultural orientations were measured by General Ethnicity Questionnaire (GEQ, Tsai et al., 2000) which consists of 37 items measuring Czech and Vietnamese cultural orientations. Based on paired ttests we found that the research sample overall endorsed a stronger Czech cultural orientation rather than Vietnamese cultural orientation. Next, we conducted explanatory factor analyses with subsequent Varimax rotation and five common factors were extracted (Language, Cultural pride, Media, Contact, Cultural preference). Czech Vietnamese people reported higher Czech language proficiency over Vietnamese, preferred Czech media over Vietnamese, and had more contact with Czechs than with Vietnamese. The sample did not vary on Vietnamese and Czech cultural preference, but expressed more Vietnamese cultural pride than Czech.

Acculturative stress and personality traits among vietnamese living in the Czech Republic
Chvojková, Petra ; Hřebíčková, Martina
The aim of the study is to analyze the link between the acculturative stress, personality traits included in five-factor model and demographic characteristics among Vietnamese living in the Czech Republic. The sample consisted of 488 Vietnamese aged from 15 to 69 years. Acculturative stress was measured by the Czech version of the Riverside Acculturation Stress Inventory (RASI, Benet-Martinez, 2003). RASI identifies five areas that may influence individuals exposed to two cultures and can cause mental stress (1. Language skills, 2. Work Challenges, 3. Intercultural relations, 4. Discrimination and 5. Cultural isolation). Personality traits were measured by Big Five Inventory (BFI-44, John & Benet-Martinez, 1998). Based on results of previous studies, we have proposed that acculturation stress would be related to neuroticism, but also to other traits included in the five-factor model. We have proposed also, that experience of acculturative stress would differ depending on age and gender. Our preliminary results confirm that neuroticism, age and socioeconomic status appeared to be the most powerful predictors of acculturative stress among Vietnamese living in the Czech Republic.

Regional stereotypes: Personality characteristics of a typical Czech, Moravian and Silesian
Hřebíčková, Martina ; Cholastová, E.
The research compared profiles of personality traits based on ratings of regional stereotypes. The five-factor model of personality measured with National Character Survey was used as a framework for rating of regional stereotypes. Altogether, 944 university students from different parts of the Czech Republic were asked to rate personality traits of a typical inhabitant of three regions in the Czech Republic: Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. Similarities between profiles of regional stereotypes were determined with ICC. Respondents from different parts of the Czech Republic agreed in perception of personality traits of a typical Bohemian, Moravian and Silesian. The comparison of regional stereotypes showed no convergence. A typical Czech was perceived as more open to new experience and more conscientious as compared to a typical Moravian and Silesian. A typical Moravian was rated as extraverted and agreeable.
Slovak Tango: Perception of Slovak Personality Characteristics
Hřebíčková, Martina ; Kouřilová, Sylvie
The study focuses on national stereotype of Slovaks and its comparison with Czech, German, Austrian and Polish stereotypes. Over 4,136 Czech university students and 100 adults in eight subsamples from different parts of the Czech Republic rated five “typical country representatives” on National Character Survey Results indicated that the typical Slovak is perceived the same way across groups of respondents. The second goal of our study was to compare Slovak auto- (ratings by Slovaks) and heterotereotypes (ratings by Czechs). We found no correspondence between perceptions of a typical Slovak from an ingroup and outgroup perspective. Our third goal was to compare stereotypical profiles of the five countries’ representatives based on ratings from Czech respondents. We found that the profile of a typical Slovak corresponds with the profile of a typical Pole, while profile of a typical German corresponds with the profile of a typical Austrian.

Personality of women and personality of men in the light of the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R)
Hřebíčková, Martina
Gender differences in five personality traits have been documented across many cultures. Results showed that women reported themselves to be higher in Neuroticism, Agreeableness, Warmth, and Openness to Feelings, whereas men were higher in Assertiveness and Openness to Ideas. In the contribution data from self-reports 430 men and 526 women on the Czech version of the Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R) are presented. Gender differences previously found across cultures were replicated. Possible explanations for this finding are discussed, including biological theories, social role model and evolutionary psychology.
