Introduction: Religion has played a significant role in people's life. Iran, as a religious country, has tried to highlight its role. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between five personality dimensions and religiosity among students of Mazandaran University.
Methods: Data were collected from 407 male and female students of Mazandaran University based on Krejcie and Morgan sampling table. Glock and Stark’ as well as Costa and McCrae’s scales were applied to measure religiosity and personality dimensions, respectively.
Findings: The results showed that respondents had higher scores on religiosity such as ritual, emotion, and consequence. In personality dimensions, they scored higher in neuroticism and pleasantness and lower in extroversion, openness and conscientiousness. Moreover, the results indicated that personality dimensions of extroversion, openness and conscientiousness had a positive and significant relationship with religiosity of students, while neuroticism and pleasantness had no significant relationship with religiosity. Besides, the regression demonstrated the conscientiousness and openness of personality dimensions as predictable factors of students' religiosity.
Conclusion: Considering the high level of neuroticism of the students and trying to treat it, it is necessary to pay attention to the differences in personality dimensions in order to increase religiosity among male and female students. That is, first by identifying their personality type and desires, the method of religious propaganda should be chosen among them.
Keywords: Neuroticism, Extroversion, Openness, Pleasantness, Conscientiousness, Religiosity dimensions, Students, Personality dimensions
