Abstract:The aim of this study was to examine the correlations between the factor sensation seeking, the Big Five Personality dimensions and Holiday Preferences (four types as suggested by Eachus, 2004: Adventurous, Beach, Cultural, Indulgent) and also to investigate if Holiday Preferences can be predicted by any of the mentioned factors. The NEO-FFI, the BSSS and eight items of the Holiday Preferences Scale were administered to 104 Psychology students at the University of Twente. Concerning the correlations between sensation seeking and the Big Five, the existent literature was supported in so far, that significant positive correlations were found between sensation seeking and Extraversion and Openness, respectively, and a significant negative correlation was found between sensation seeking and Conscientiousness. Furthermore, several significant correlations between the sensation seeking subscales and the Big Five were determined (among which positive correlations between Experience Seeking and Adventurous and Cultural Preference and a negative correlation with Indulgent Preference), as well as significant correlations between the (dimensions of the) Big Five and Holiday Preferences (e.g. positive correlations between Openness and Cultural Preference and negative correlations between Openness and Beach and Indulgent Preference). Besides, the study revealed the factors age, gender, Openness, Experience Seeking and Disinhibition as being the most important predictors of the four holiday preference types.
