The purpose of this study is to find out if there is a correlation between personality, specifically extroversion and introversion, and levels of depression experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. This was chosen because although pandemics are have occurred in the past, there is limited information on what this Covid-19 pandemic means for mental health. We hypothesized that there will be a positive correlation between extroversion and levels of depression experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. We hypothesized this based on aspects of personalities and the restrictions and effects of the pandemic. Participants took two brief surveys, one based on the Beck Depression Scale and the other a revised version of the Eysenck Personality Scale that is specific to introversion and extroversion. Participants also filled out a brief demographic survey.
