As personality traits play an important role in the determination of individuals' behaviors and their readiness for special abnormal behaviors, it seems necessary to assess the various levels of personality traits in different cultures. The present research was performed by the purpose of assessing psychometric characteristics and factor analysis of Diagnostic Assessment of Personality Pathology-Basic Questionnaire (DAP-BQ) Persian version. 415 participants (253 male and 162 female) were selected voluntary by available sampling from university students, Eram Park's personnel and pedestrians. The study sample completed DAP-BQ and the short form of Neuroticism-extraversion and openness Personality Inventory Revised (NEO-PI-R). Findings showed a high-order solution with four-factors including emotional dysregulation, dissocial behavior, inhibition and compulsivity obsession which explained 72.57% of total variance. Also, Cronbach alpha coefficients (ranging from 0.73 to 0.93 range) and test-retest coefficients (ranging from 0.51 to 0.92 range) were in an acceptable range. Results showed that the Persian version of DAP-BQ had a proper validity and reliability.
