[en] Research showed that terrorism perception is influenced by the media. In this context, this study aimed to study how personality influences terrorism perception through qualitative and quantitative methods. Participants (n=90) answered an online questionnaire that measured danger perception of terrorist events, the media influence as well as personality (BFI-Fr). Afterwards, a semi-directive interview was realized with a sample of the online questionnaire participants (n=30) in order to give substance to the previous observations. Results suggested that some personality dimensions – agreeability and neroticism – are linked to high level of terrorism perception in terms of threat perception, worrying, avoidance and relation to the media. Furthermore, the media as well as personal characteristics – age, gender and profession – influence terrorism perception.
