The sample consisted of 369 people who were selected by random cluster sampling and completed the Saving Inventory-Revised, hoarding cognitions questionnaire, experiential avoidance questionnaire and autism spectrum quotient.
Results: The findings of the study showed that experiential avoidance has a positive and significant relationship with aspects of hoarding, while the autism spectrum traits have no relationship with the cognitive and behavioral aspects of hoarding. In addition, a finding on mediating role showed that in the proposed model, only the experiential avoidance has a mediator role.
