Abstract

Our model, which integrates the five factor theory of personality with the contact theory of intergroup attitudes, was tested in two studies. Openness and agreeableness predicted intergroup attitudes and these relationships were mediated by contact experiences. Openness stimulated selection processes (interest in intergroup contact), while agreeableness stimulated evocation processes (make intergroup interactions pleasant).
