Abstract:   (13124 Views)
The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between criminals’ personality traits and their coping styles. Finding whether there were relationships between personality scales and the coping styles or not, and if there were, which scales and personality styles were involved, was the main aim of this research. The method of this research was descriptive, in which a sample consisting of 50 prisoners in Tabriz was chosen and tested by Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-II, Cassidy& Lang Problem–Solving Style and a Researcher-constructed inventory. The result obtained by correlation analysis indicates that, in criminals, there is a reverse relationship between schizoid self-torment personality and approach coping-style. While, the avoidance style has a direct relationship with dependence scale, but a reverse relationship with narcissistic. On the other hand, trust style has a reverse relationship with the avoidance personality scale. In addition there is no correlation between creativity style and other personality scales. Never the less, controlling style has a direct relationship with dependence personality scale, but a reverse relationship with 3 scales of anti social, quarrelsome and passive quarrelsome. Moreover, helplessness style has a direct relationship with 2 scales of helpless and schizoid, but a reverse relationship with 3 scales of anti social, quarrelsome, and compulsory.
