The current study aimed to examine (1) age and gender differences on the personality traits, negative emotions, and suicide probability; (2) the interrelationships between the measures of the study; and (3) to examine the factors associated with the personality traits, the negative emotions, and the measures of suicide probability. For these purposes, data was collected from 464 people between the ages 16-67. Results indicated that personality traits were closely associated with negative emotions; namely, Loneliness, Hopelessness, Shame and Guilt, and Anger. Specifically, Loneliness, Hopelessness, Shame, and Inward Oriented Reactions on Anger were found to be negatively associated with Extraversion. On the other hand, Loneliness, Hopelessness, Shame, and Revenge Related Reactions and Passive-Aggressive Reactions on Anger were found positively related to Neuroticism. Similarly, Shame, Revenge Related Reactions, Inward-Oriented Reactions, and Careless Reactions on Anger were found positively associated with Negative Valence. There were also significant associations between personality traits, negative emotions, and suicide probability: Extraversion was found negatively associated with all domains of Suicide Probability; Neuroticism and Negative Valence were found positively related to all domains of Suicide Probability. Similarly, Loneliness and Hopelessness were also found positively associated with Suicide Probability domains. Moreover, Conscientiousness was found negatively, and Inward-Oriented Anger was found positively associated with both Suicide Ideation and Hostility domains of Suicide Probability. All in all, this study supported the strong effect of personality traits and negative emotions with suicide probability.
