Introduction: The purpose of this study, is comparing Eysenck extraversion, neuroticism and psychoticism personality dimensions in people with morning – evening cycles. Method: This study was an ex post facto study. 90 M.A students of Tarbiat Modares University were selected via purposeful sampling (30 morning cycle, 30 evening cycle and 30 moderate cycle). They completed morningness - eveningness personality questionnaire and Eysenck personality questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using ANOVA. Results: Analysis showed that there is no significant differences in extraversion and neuroticism between three groups, however, psychoticism was significantly different between the groups. That is, evening group showed higher scores in psychoticism. Conclusion: Results, in line with previous studies, indicate that people with evening cycles have higher scores in psychoticism than people with morning cycle. This difference is probably due to the wide similarities between eveningness and psychoticism. For example, impulsivity which is one of the dominant properties of psychotic people, is strongly related to the evening cycle. These results can be useful in better planning for optimal usage of employees.
