BELLO-VILLANUEV, Ana Mercedes; PALACIO, Jorge; RODRIGUEZ-DIAZ, Melissa  e  OVIEDO-TRESPALACIOS, Oscar. Correlation between personality and the factors of the Theory of Planned Behavior, in school enrolled adolescents from 11-19 years old in the Colombian Caribbean. Ter Psicol [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.3, pp.169-180. ISSN 0718-4808.

The increasing rate of pregnancies in teenagers and the high incident of the infections of sexual transmission (HIV/ AIDS, for example), these are health related issues (and especially the sexual and reproductive health), which have received great attention on the part of investigators and of the public opinion in general. Recently, there has been evidenced that teenagers carry out very easily risk sexual behaviors, and those who have not presented the above mentioned behaviors also show high levels of intention to carry out them. There is the hypothesis that besides cognitive variables such as attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control and intention, the personality of the young persons is an aspect that plays an important paper in their sexual and reproductive health. Significant correlations were found between the variales of the TPB and the personality traits; the results suggest that the direction of these correlations is associated with the specific type of behavior or situation that is assessed.
