Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between the Big Five personality dimensions and smoking variables. Thirty-seven smokers completed a standard, reliable 80-item bipolar measure of the Big Five trait dimensions, as well as measures of nicotine dependence, smoking exposure, and quitting history. Despite finding some significant zero-order relationships between a few of the dimensions and the smoking variables, only one of the partial correlational analyses that controlled for relationships among the personality dimensions in their associations with the nicotine dependence and smoking history variables was significant. These results indicate the need for further research on personality traits and smoking.
