Description 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.
