Abstract:Purpose: The present study examined the link between two different personality traits (extraversion and neuroticism), as well as the gender and the efficiency (increase in positive affect) on the online intervention ‘Three good things in life’. Additionally it was tested if personality takes influence upon if people finish the intervention or quit it before is ends. Method: Participants were asked to complete the online intervention within one week. Furthermore they were asked to fill in two questionnaires. The BFI- 10, which is supposed to give information about the personality and the PANAS for the positive perceived affect. These hypotheses were all tested with an ANOVA. Results: Results indicate that neuroticism and extraversion do not have any influence on the efficiency of the intervention. Moreover personality indicates not to influence whether people cancel the intervention or not. There are differences between men and women concerning the positive affect. Compared to men, women show a greater increase in their positive affect. This could lead to the conclusion, that the intervention is more useful for women than for men. Discussion: For further research it will be necessary to know exactly where there is a concrete difference between men and women with regard to the intervention. In this way, the intervention can possibly be optimized for men.
