The main objective of the current study is to investigate the relationship between personality traits, individual values, and pedestrian behaviors. Although personality traits and values are widely studied variables in different fields, there is limited research investigating the relationship of these variables with pedestrian behaviors in the literature. In the current study, the mediator role of individual values on the relationship between Big Five Personality Traits and pedestrian behaviors were examined. A total of 633 people (361 females and 272 males) participated in the study. Age range was between 18 and 56 (M=26.1; SD= 6.51). Demographic information form, Big Five Inventory, Portrait Values Questionnaire, and Pedestrian Behavior Scale were used as measurement tools. Bivariate Correlations and Mediation Analyses were conducted to investigate the relationship between study variables. Individual values mediated the relationship between personality traits and pedestrian behaviors. The findings were provided in detail. Discussion of findings, limitations, and contributions of the current study were presented in light of the relevant literature.
