The study was carried out with the participation of 425 (300 female, 125 male) students (Mean Age = 21.19, S = 2.01) who were studying in different departments of Hacettepe University. Data was collected through Individual Information Form, Adjective Based Personality Scale, Brief Symptom Inventory, Self-Compassion Scale and The Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support.

The relationship between the variables and the sub-dimensions of variables is found statistically significant. The mediator variable analysis which is conducted to explore the mediator role of self-compassion and PSS, self-compassion and PSS have mediator effect on the relationship between neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness and psychological symptomatology.

The findings of this study were discussed under the light of related literature and it was found out that the findings regarding the interrelationships between the variables were mostly consistent with the findings of other studies in the literature. It was revealed that the mediating role of self-compassion and PSS on the relationship between personality and psychological symptoms is important to understand the relationship between personality and psychopathology.
