Hope is a positive futuristic orientation one has in life which also influences how one feels in the present. Literature seems to suggest that there exists a relationship between hope and the traits of personality. In light of such previous findings, the aim of the present research was to understand an association between hope and the Big Five Factors of personality. The findings have revealed significant positive relationship between extraversion, openness to experience and conscientiousness with the total hope scores and a significant negative relationship between neuroticism and hope scores. The personality trait-hope understanding could be used in designing interventions and their successful implementation by keeping in mind the dominant traits which is likely to have an impact on individual’s goal directed behaviour during treatment and the belief about benefitting from the intervention.
