The Possible Relationship between University Students' Personality Traits, Psychological Well-being and Addiction Potential
The current study aimed to examine the relationship between personality traits, psychological well-being and addiction potential among university students. A total number of 200 BA university students at Kharazmi University of Tehran were selected through stratified sampling. In order to collect the data, the short form of NEO, Ryff Psychological Well-being Inventory and Iranian Addiction Potential Scale were used. To analyze the data, a Pearson product-moment correlation and stepwise regression were conducted. The results revealed a significant negative relationship between psychological well-being and addiction potential. Moreover, a significant negative relationship was found between extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness and addiction potential. However, a significant positive relationship was observed between neuroticism and addiction potential. The results also pointed to psychological well-being, neuroticism, and agreeableness as the strongest predictors for addiction potential, respectively.
