Abstract Participants, 524 students (80 % white and 20 % nonwhite) at a large urban university, completed a questionnaire assessing the personality traits, prejudice against four target groups, and discrimination towards the same groups. As hypothesized, analyses revealed single higher order factors for both prejudice and discrimination. Path analysis found support for a model with personality traits directly influence prejudice, only indirectly affect discrimination, and where prejudice directly influences discrimination.
