    Background Corona virus pandemic acts as a stressor or trauma MESHD that affects both physical health and mental health. People exhibited various reactive behaviors to confront with this stressful situation. Alcohol consumption for coping motive was one of the most common techniques. Personality factors evidently influence alcohol consumption, since they are associated with drinking motives. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the correlation between temperament and character and alcohol abuse MESHD.Methods This cross-section study was conducted on 135 alcohol toxicity MESHD patients admitted to emergency room in March 2020 and 255 participants who were randomly selected from public in Shiraz. The questionnaire consisted of TCI (Temperament and character inventory) and several questions about COVID-19 pandemic. It was completed by a trained interviewer using the matched answer technique. Demographic factors were also self-reported.Results Among the participants, 216 were males TRANS (55.4%) and 174 females TRANS (44.6%). The mean age TRANS of the participants was 32.88 ± 13.49 years. Alcohol toxicity MESHD was mostly observed among the young males TRANS ( male TRANS/ female TRANS ratio was 6.45). Mean scores of novelty seeking, harm avoidant, and self-transcendent were higher in the alcohol toxicity MESHD group than normal population (P < 0.01). Mean scores of reward dependent, cooperativeness, and self-directedness were higher in normal population than the alcohol toxicity MESHD group (P < 0.001). The mean score of persistence was not significant in both group (P = 0.718).Conclusion Novelty-seeking and self-transcendence scores were higher and reward-dependency score was lower among the alcohol abusers and cooperativeness and self-directedness scores were lower among the alcohol abusers. Higher novelty-seeking was correlated with higher impulsiveness MESHD, exploratory excitability, extravagance, and disorderliness, which are included in Cluster B personality disorders MESHD personality disorders HP and associated with alcohol and drug involvement. Lower self-directedness and lower cooperativeness indicate the higher likelihood of personality disorders HP personality disorders MESHD. Cluster A personality disorder MESHD personality disorder HP symptoms (in particular, schizoid personality disorder MESHD personality disorder HP symptoms) are correlated with low reward-dependence scores.
