To explore the relationship between personality characteristics and learning motivation, a sample of 158 high school students in Sheeraaz was selected and two measures of personality and motivation were administered. Results show that inner-based motivation is positively correlated with personality characteristics such as dutifulness, openness to new experience, and agreeability. The outer-based motivation was found to be negatively correlated to psychosis while two of its components showed the same type of relationship with dutifulness and openness to new experiences. The latter were found to be significant predictors for inner-based motivation while psychosis meaningfully predicted outer-based motivation.
