The studies on the effects of Socio-Cultural Level (SCL) on the Big Five personality factors have always considered the Socio-Economic Status but not the Cultural Capital (CC) and Social Capital (CS). In the present investigation, for the first time, we have studied the effects of all the dimensions of LSC on personality of 121 women and 106 men, living in the same geographical area. We have compared them with those observed previously in their teenage sons and daughters. Results showed differential effects by gender and age: personality appears to be influenced by CC in all women, by CS in adolescent males, and by education level in adult men.
