Introduction: Covid-19 disease, in addition to the serious damage it has done to the physical health of the people, has caused a great deal of psychological distress, which makes it necessary to understand the factors associated with tolerating distress during this period.
Aim: The purpose of this research was to ascertain the predictive value of personality factors and coping methods for distress tolerance during coronavirus outbreaks.
Method: The current research used a descriptive-correlational approach. The statistical population consisted of all residents of Tehran aged 18-60 who engaged in the study as online in 2020. The sample size was established using the Cramer formula to be 280 individuals, and they were chosen using a non-random selection approach. Distress Tolerance Questionnaires (DTS), Coping Strategies Questionnaires (WOCQ), and the Neo Personality Questionnaire were used in the study (NEO-FFI). Multiple regression analysis was performed using SPSS software version 25.
Results: Personality traits of extroversion, flexibility and agreeing have a positive effect and neurosis have a negative and the most effect on the degree of distress tolerance during coronary heart disease (P=0.001). Problematic strategies have a positive effect and emotion-oriented strategies have a negative and the most effect on the degree of distress tolerance of individuals during coronary heart disease (P=0.001).
Conclusion: According to this study's results, personality characteristics and coping methods are critical in predicting distress tolerance during coronavirus outbreaks. As a result, it can be concluded that paying attention to individual personality characteristics, particularly neuroticism and emotion-oriented coping strategies, and providing specialized training and counseling to these individuals during the corona pandemic can be effective in increasing distress tolerance.
