The current study explores the facet level personality predictors of self-harm in a college student sample and compares the facet scores for self-harming students to those in non-harming students. Personality is assessed using the Revised NEO Personality Inventory NEO-PI-R and self-harm is assessed using the Deliberate Self-Harm Inventory (DSHI). Results indicate self-harm can be predicted with four NEO-PI-R facets: E2: Gregariousness, N3: Depression, A3: Altruism, O5: Ideas. Multivariate analysis of variance revealed 10 facets that self-harmers scored significantly different on than their non-harming peers including: N1; Anxiety, O1: Fantasy, A1: Trust, N2: angry hostility, O2: Aesthetics, N3: Depression, N4: Self-consciousness, A4: compliance, N5: Impulsiveness, E5; Excitement-seeking, O5: Ideas, and N6; Vulnerability.
