Introduction: The main purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the degree and type of mobile usage and personal traits in students of Faculty of Educational sciences and Psychology university of Isfahan.
Method: 300 students (150 male150 female) were selected by random sampling method and were assessed with a version of (NEO-FFI-R) inventory scales and self constructed mobile usage questionnaire. Data were analyzed by applying Pearson product-moment correlation matrix and linear regression.
Results: There was only significant relationship between the rate of mobile usage and neuroticism traits. On this study, none of the five personality traits had significant relationship with (Internet and Bluetooth) mobile usage. There was a positive relationship only between using mobile games and neuroticism. Also, neuroticism had a negative relationship with listening to music via mobile. On the other hand, "extraversion" and "openness to experiences" had a positive relationship with "listening to music". "Agreeableness" and "conscientiousness", didn’t have any significant relationship with listening to music.
Conclusion: Among personality traits, "neuroticism" is the best predictor of the degree and type of mobile usage. In addition, personality traits can better predict the "listening to music" and "playing games" in comparison to other mobile usages
