Organ transplantation has undoubtedly had many benefits for patients in need. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare personality and psychological characteristics in successful and unsuccessful transplant patients. In a causal-comparative study, two groups of successful and unsuccessful transplant patients (all organ transplant groups including kidney, heart, liver...) were compared. For this purpose, 100 transplant patients (50 people in each group) who lived in Tehran in the second six months of 2022, were selected by purposive sampling. Participants answered the questionnaire of Costa­ & McCrae (1992) personality traits and researcher-made psychological traits. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 22 and multivariate analysis of variance. The results indicated there is a significant difference between two groups in personality traits (irritability, extroversion, openness, being conscientious and Compatibility) and psychological characteristics (risk-taking, self-control, ambiguity tolerance, daydreaming, challenging). Overall, the results supported from attention to the personality and psychological characteristics of patients with need of organ transplantation and designing psychological interventions for them.
