Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation, univariate analysis of variance, and multiple regression (enter method).
Results:  Life expectancy was positively related to extraversion and negatively related to neuroticism. The agency thinking was negatively correlated with neuroticism and openness to experience. The pathway thinking was positively related to extraversion and conscientiousness. Regression analysis showed that life expectancy was predicted by extraversion and neuroticism.

Conclusion: The results showed that the personality traits of men with cardiovascular disease were correlated with their life expectancy. Therefore, it is important to pay specific attention to personality traits and increase of life expectancy to prevent diseases and improve health in society.
