One of the most important factors associated with suicide is the traces of pathological character in people. Among the three clusters of personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder and borderline personality disorder are the most important disorders that have a role in suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts and a complete suicide. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between borderline and schizotypal personality with suicidal thoughts among students. For this purpose, in a descriptive correlational study, 250 students of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences were evaluated in terms of borderline personality, schizotypal personality characteristics and suicidal thoughts. The result of partial correlation test results indicated that all borderline and schizotypal characters have positive and significant relationship with suicidal thoughts. However, only despair, paranoia and dissociative symptoms related to stress and paranoid suspiciousness / social anxiety could significantly predict their suicidal thoughts. According to the results of this research, it can be said that normal individuals who have borderline and schizotypal traits of personalities, should be investigated on their suicidal thoughts. In order to prevent suicide in people with borderline personality characteristics, they should be treated on the properties of their despair and paranoid symptoms. People who have a streak of schizotypal personality, should also be taken into consideration on their paranoid suspiciousness and social anxiety characteristics.
