Ambiguity of tolerance, is accepting uncertainty as part of life and intolerance of ambiguity are beliefs about worry, negative problem orientation and avoidance coping style. The present study aimed to investigate the contribution of the five factors of personality in the prediction of ambiguity tolerance. To this end, in a descriptive study based on regression analysis, 248 patients (136 females and 112 males) were selected in multi-stage cluster sampling among students of Islamic Azad University of Kish International branch; they were tested in terms of ambiguity tolerance and the five major factors of personality. Regression analysis indicated a significant negative correlation between the neurosis factor and ambiguity tolerance and a significant positive relationship between extroversion and agreeableness with tolerance of ambiguity. The Stepwise regression analysis indicated that the neurosis factor can alone explain 29 percent, the two factors of the neurosis and agreeableness 33%, and three factors neurosis, agreeableness and extrovert, 34 percent of the variance score of the tolerance of ambiguity. Results generally indicate that high neurosis can lead to reduced ambiguity tolerance and extraversion and agreeableness leads to increase in students' tolerance for ambiguity. So it looks like because neurotic people are emotionally unstable, worried, and anxious and immediately react to pressure cannot have a high tolerance for ambiguity. This characteristic results in the ability of neurosis to predict ambiguity tolerance.
