Both rightwing authoritarianism (RWA, Altemeyer,1996) and social dominance orientation (SDO, Sidanius & Pratto, 1999) havequite distinct psychological features (Duckitt & Sibley, 2017). SDO isviewed to the extent that one desires that one´s group dominate and be superiorto outgroups (Pratto et al., 1994) while RWA emphasizes submission to authorityfigures of inner groups. Although there are studies analyzing the relationshipbetween SDO, RWA and personality, no study has been conducted in Latin Americanregion. We examined how Big Six personality traits correlates with SDO andRWA in a sample of Argentinean participants (N =1145. Age = 40.76, SD = 14.30, 48.3% men and 51.7% women) obtained in the frameof a crosscultural research directed by James Liu. SDO is predicted positivelyby extraversion and negatively by agreeableness, openness to experience andhonestyhumility (R2 corrected = .141). RWA is predicted positively byconscientiousness and negatively by openness to change (R2 corrected = .088).Significant sex differences were noted with respect to SDO, RWA and somepersonality traits: women score highly in agreeableness, openness to experienceand honestyhumility while men score highly in emotional stability, SDO and RWA.Older participants score highly in RWA and all personality traits but opennessto experience in which younger people tend to have higher scores. We discussresults in the context of the latest publications on the subject.
