This article investigates how the so-called Big Five indirectly affect involvement in electoral and non-electoral modes of participation by looking at political knowledge and interest as well as internal efficacy. The analyses rely on data collected by the Austrian (AUTNES) and the German Election Studies (GLES) using path models. Thus, they allow comparison of personality effects in Germany and Austria. Our results show that extraversion and openness to experience are central preconditions of political participation, which have an indirect effect mediated by political involvement. In addition, variation in the causal patterns across the two countries suggests that context matters.
