From: Personality traits mediate the association between perceived parental bonding and well-being in adult volunteers from the community

Characteristic Beta P-value VIF
Age −0.306 < 0.001 1.169

  1. Beta standardized partial regression coefficient, VIF Variance Inflation Factor, SUBI Subjective Well-being Inventory, PBI Parental Bonding Instrument, TCI Temperament and Character Inventory
  2. Dependent variable: SUBI well-being score
  3. Nineteen independent variables: age, sex (male = 0, female = 1), marital status (unmarried = 0, married = 1),
  4. number of offspring, living alone (yes = 0, no = 1), education years, employment status (unemployed = 0, employed = 1), past history of psychiatric illness (yes = 0, no = 1), first-degree relative with psychiatric illness (yes = 0, no = 1), PBI scores (paternal care, maternal care, paternal overprotection, maternal overprotection), TCI scores (novelty seeking, harm avoidance, reward dependence, persistence, self-directedness, cooperativeness, self-transcendence)
  5. Eight variables in Table 2 were significant variables by the results of stepwise multiple regression analysis
  6. Adjusted R2 = 0.487, F = 45.414
  7. P < 0.001
