Objectives: The purpose of the present study was to assess the relationship of personality traits of female victims with different types of violence, and to determine the role of demographic characteristics (compared to personality traits) in the prediction of violence against women. Method: The present descriptive correlational study was carried out on married women presenting to District Health Centers in the year of 1387. Based on socio-economic status, city districts were divided into low (40 centers), medium (30 centers), and high (15 centers). Thereafter, based on the size and extension of each level, a number of centers were randomly chosen from each district, and finally 396 individuals, who were selected through convenience sampling, completed the Five Factor Inventory and Spouse Abuse Questionnaire. Data analysis was done via SPSS-16 and using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression. Results: Neuroticism, conscientiousness, and extraversion predicted psychological and physical, sexual, and physical violence respectively (p<0.05). Male addiction, male and female age, male education, duration of marriage and not having a child also played roles in the prediction of different types of aggression (p<0.05). Conclusion: Even though personality traits have dominant roles in the prediction of all three types of violence, demographic factors and physical and mental illnesses were also shown to have significant predictive roles in this regard.
