Abstract:

The present paper aims to explore the relationship between mindfulness (measured by the Spanish version of the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire -FFMQ), personality “Big Five” (measured by the Spanish version of the NEO Five Factor Inventory) and suggestibility (measured by the Inventory of Suggestibility) in normal university population (N= 80). Main results revealed negative and significant correlations between Neuroticism and all FFMQ facets, except for the “observe” subscale. Very low and mainly non-significant correlations were obtained regarding Extraversion, Openness to Experience, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness. Regarding suggestibility, there were positive and significant correlations between the Absorption subscale and the FFMQ total score, “describe” and “act with awareness” facets; and negative and significant correlations between the Influencing by others subscale and the FFMQ total score, “act with awareness” and “nonjudgment” facets. Taking into account FFMQ y IS total scores, mindfulness and suggestibility constructs appear to be relatively independent. Results are discussed regarding previous literature.

Key words:
