Abstract

The study aimed to identify the personality traits in adolescents, and the level of self-disclose they have, and the significance of the differences according to the variables of sex, and the nature of the relationship between personality traits and self-disclose. The study sample included 164 male and female students in junior high school. The study relied on two tools which are Freiburg measure of personal traits that is translated to Arabic by (Allawi, 1987), and Self-disclose measure that is prepared by (al-Dabbagh.2013). After processing the data statistically, the results showed that teenagers are highly characterized by the trait of the susceptibility to stimulation, and are moderately characterized bytraits of nervousness, aggressiveness, and depression. Traits of control, social, and quietness were low. It turns out that teenagers' level of self-disclose is low, and there are no differences between the sexes in it. The results indicated the presence of a significant statistically positive relationship between the two traits of being social and calm and the self-disclose. As well as, the presence of a significant statistically negative relationship between the traits of depression, nervousness, aggression, susceptibility to stimulationon one hand and the self-disclose on the other. In light of the results, a set of recommendations and proposals have been presented.
