Method: Cross-sectional data from the Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank (N = 4,649) were analyzed using linear regression models with leisure-time physical activity (metric equivalence) as outcome. Results: Low versus high occupational social class was associated with 4{\%} (95{\%} confidence interval [CI] = [3{\%}, 5{\%}]) greater leisure-time physical activity duration, but 2{\%} (CI = [1{\%}, 3{\%}]) lower intensity. Each 10-unit increase in extraversion was associated with 5{\%} (CI = [2{\%}, 8{\%}]) greater duration. Intensity increased by each 10-unit increase in conscientiousness (6{\%}, CI = [4{\%}, 7{\%}]), openness (3{\%}, CI = [1{\%}, 4{\%}]), neuroticism (3{\%}, CI = [1{\%}, 4{\%}]), and extraversion (5{\%}, CI = [4{\%}, 7{\%}]). Conscientiousness was positively associated with duration in low, but not in high, occupational social class (interaction p value = .002). Discussion: Higher occupational social class was associated with lower leisure-time physical activity duration, but higher intensity. Extraversion was positively associated with duration and intensity. Conscientiousness, openness, and neuroticism were positively associated with intensity.
