In a sample of 63 female suicide attempters, Eysenck Personality Questionnaire-Revised (EPQ-R) Psychoticism appeared as the most relevant dimension related to hopelessness, suicidal ideation & number of previous attempts. Extraversion correlated negatively with most measures associated with the attempt. Neuroticism showed a tendency to correlate with 2 measures of suicide ideation. Data are discussed in terms of the usefulness of the EPQ-R for suicide evaluation & prevention. (19 refs.)
