Self-leadership is a process through which people influence themselves to behave and perform in a desirable way. Self-leadership in many fields has been successfully used so far. One of the fields that seems to be related with the self-leadership skills is individuals’ personality traits. The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between big five personality factors (extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism) and self-leadership among students of university of Isfahan. In a descriptive-correlation study, 207 students were selected via stratified random sampling. The research instruments were Houghton and Neck (2002) self-leadership questionnaire and John et al. (1991) big five personality model questionnaire. Data were analyzed using correlation coefficient and regression analysis. The results indicated that there was not significant relationship between self-leadership and extraversion, but there were significant relationship between self-leadership and agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism. Also, the result of regression analysis showed that the predictor variables (personality characteristics) predicted self-leadership, significantly. The findings of this research could have an important role in the literature of self-leadership and personality. The obtained findings can be used in the planning for self-leadership skills training.
