Background: Psychological well-being is considered as one of the important factors in the development of personal and social development in research literature, and is influenced by various factors such as the personality characteristics and mindfulness. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between psychological well-being students and personality characteristics considering the mediating role of mindfulness in the form of a causal model.
Methods: This is a descriptive correlational research. Statistical population of this research is the Mohaghegh Ardebil University students, among whom 440 were selected by multistage cluster sampling. For data collection, questionnaire of Ryff’s psychological well-being scale (1989), Neo's personality questionnaires (1985) and Braun and Ryan's mindfulness (2003) were used. Data were analyzed through SPSS v. 24 and Amose v. 20 using Pearson correlation and path analysis.
Results: The results showed that the indirect path coefficients among the extroversion personality characteristics (p =011, β= 0.31), conscientiousness (p =047, β= 0.22), openness (p =028, β= 0.11) and neuroticism (p =000, β= -0.19), with psychological well-being are significant. The proposed model also had a good fit (GFI= 0.92, AGFI= 0.91, CFI = 0.94, RMSEA = 0.07, X2/df = 2/61) and the results supported the mediating role of mindfulness in the relationship between the personality traits and psychological well-being of the students.
Conclusion: The findings indicated that the personality traits are directly related with the intermediary of the mindfulness with psychological well-being. Therefore, in order to increase psychological well-being in students, intervention in the personality traits and mindfulness can be important.
