Abstract: 

Hopelessness as a cognitive factor is characterized by negative expectancies about future and is observed in many psychological disorders. The aim of the present study was to examine the predicting role of personality characteristics and patience components in the hopelessness of university students. Five hundred and sixteen university students at Shiraz University were recruited via random cluster sampling method. These participants filled Goldberg’s 50- item personality questionnaire (Short Form), the Patience Scale and Beck’s Hopelessness Scale. According to the results of multiple regression analysis, the Big Five factors of Personality, predicted hopelessness and its subscales. Patience components predicted negatively hopelessness and its subscales. Moreover, the combination of the Big Five factors of personality and patience components predicted hopelessness and its subscales. The results indicated that personality and patience are important variables in predicting hopelessness. Thus, taking these two psychological constructs into consideration is important in the treatment of depression and hopelessness.
