Abstract

Academic entitlement is considered a major concern in secondary and higher education. It is treated as documented problem however the causes are not well addressed. Recently, the role of personality has received an increasing attention in explaining academically entitled behaviors. The aim of this study was to identify personality traits that best predict academic entitlement. Population of this study included 5746 students from Management department of different Universities of Peshawar. A sample of 361 was selected arbitrarily using proportional and allocation method. However, only 269 individuals responded to the call (response rate=76.6%). All variables were measured using adapted questionnaires. Reliability of all the scaleswas tested using CronbachÂ’s alpha coefficient.To test the hypotheses of the study multiple regression technique was used. Results reveal that HEXACO model is significantly related only with entitled expectations, a component of academic entitlement. This implies that academic entitlement was somewhat predicted by HEXACO model, that is, only extraversion was a significant predictor of academic entitlement. Overall, results stated that academic entitlement is somewhat predicted by HEXACO model of personality. It is recommended that as academic entitlement exists in higher education students, so precautionary measures should be adapted.

Key words: Personality, HEXACO, Academic entitlement.
