dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this quasi experiment and quantitative study is to investigate whether there is a difference in control, satisfaction with life and self- esteem with people belonging to a group and people not belonging to group. Additionally we are exploring if personality is a factor in belonging to a group and if there is a relationship between being introvert or extrovert and belonging to a group. Four questionnaires were distributed: the Pearlin Mastery scale, the Satisfaction with Life scale, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale and the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire-Revised Short Form, to a sample size of (n=116) participants requiring them to fill out a questionnaire. Results showed no significant difference between belonging to a group and having control, however a significant difference in control was found between Males and Females belonging to a group as well as extravert personality being associated more with the membership of the group, thus stating the importance of personality in belonging to a group.en
