This study was designed to determine whether there is any association between learners' personality traits and their set of attributions in learning English as a foreign language. For this aim, 216 lower intermediate English language learners, 111 of whom were male and 105 female, studying in Shokouh English language institutes took part in the study. They were asked to complete NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) and Attribution questionnaire (ATFLL). The results of the correlational study indicated a significant relationship between some of personality traits and sub-scales of attribution theory. The results of Regression Analyses also demonstrated that some of personality factors are good predictors of the factors learners attribute their successes or failures to.
