KOROL, Liliia  and  CABRAL, Gabriela Gonçalves Maria. The impact of multicultural personality on tolerance of diversity in a sample of portuguese university students. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.2, pp.57-74. ISSN 1516-3687.

This article focused on studying the impact of multicultural personality on tolerance towards diversity among a sample of 245 Portuguese university students. With the use of correlation analysis, the findings revealed that all multicultural personality dimensions (cultural empathy, open-mindedness, emotional stability, social initiation, and flexibility) were highly associated with tolerance of diversity, demonstrating close relationship between multicultural personality and tolerance to representatives of different cultural background. At the same time, only open-mindedness was investigated to be positive predictor of tolerance in intercultural context. Practical implications of the research are also discussed.

Keywords : tolerance; multicultural personality; intercultural; diversity; Portugal.
