Background and Objective: Emotion dysregulation plays a vital role in mental pathology and abnormal personality dimensions can be of significant importance in modification of interpersonal relationships and emotion dysregulation. In regard to considerable individual differences in emotion regulation strategies, the present study was conducted aiming at examination of the structural relationship between abnormal personality dimensions and emotion dysregulation in students of Shahid Madani University of Azerbaijan and Islamic Art University of Tabriz in 2016.

Materials and Methods: This was a discriptive study. The population included all students of Azerbaijan Shahid Madani University and Islamic Art University of Tabriz in 2016, among whom 289 individuals were selected based on convenient sampling. Emotion Regulation Difficulties Scale and the abridged form of Abnormal Personality Dimensions (PID-5-BF) questionnaire for DSM-5 were utilised as research tools. Data was collected and analyzed using descriptive statistics (avmean and standard deviation), Pearson’s correlation cofficient, and structural equation modeling.

Results: In this research, significant factor pathways depicted that abnormal personality dimensions indexes are positively related to emotion dysregulation (p< 0.010), such that negative affectivity with lack of emotional clarity (β = 0.19, P= 0.022), antagonism with non-acceptance of emotional responses (β = 0.27, P= 0.021), disinhibition with impulse control difficulties (β = 0.19, P= 0.011), and Psychoticism with difficulties engaging in goal-directed behavior (β = 0.23, P = 0.034) revealed stronger correlations.

Conclusion: Findings of the present study indicated that abnormal personality traits have significant effect on emotion dysregulation, and this relation can explain a large number of interpersonal difficulties linked to abnormal personality traits; therefore, one can, to some extent, improve these problems by proposing psychological strategies.
