Objectives: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the psychometric properties of 5-Dimension Personality Test (5DPT)-Persian version. Method: The sample consisted of 1040 female/male students from the universities in Tehran who were selected through multistage cluster sampling. For gathering the data, in addition to 5DPT, the subjects were asked to complete one of the eight instruments including: Iranian Students’ Mental Health Scale (ISMHS), Mental Health Inventory (MHI), General Health Questionnaire-28 (GHQ-28), Symptom Checklist-25 (SCl-25), Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (KPDS), The 33 item version NEO- Personality Inventory (NEO-33), Self-Talk Scale (STS), and Beck Hopelessness Inventory (BHI). Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and explanatory and confirmatory factor analysis. Results: The 75-item short-form of the test was composed of five saturated factors fitted to the data. These factors were neuroticism, absorption, orderliness, extroversion, and insensitivity. Internal consistency of the factors were between 0.81 (extraversion) and 0.68 (insensitivity) items’ correlation coefficients with the whole scale score were satisfactory. Factors’ reliability coefficients and all accompanied instruments were in accordance with the literature. Conclusion: The 5DPT-Persian version has suitable psychometric properties to be used in research and clinical settings.
