Abnormal behavior is a kind of voluntary behavior that violates organizational norms and reduces the productivity of organizations and individuals. This behavior involves abusive behaviors, production diversion behaviors, sabotage or sabotage, theft, and neglected or retarded behaviors (Hadizadeh et al., 2014). Surveys show that counterproductive behavior is a common and costly problem for many organizations. Probably one of the factors associated with these behaviors is personality. Therefore, the main goal of this study is to investigate the relationship between personality traits and anti-productivity behaviors (Rabie and Babadi, 1394). The research method was descriptive and correlational.
