The study’s scales were Barron’s Ego Strength Scale, and (GPA).These scales were applied on a sample of Hashemite University students, consisting of 232 males and females. The results of study showed a high percentage of students (40% of the sample) suffering from neuroticism, and a significant correlation (r =0.293, p<.01) on Ego Strength Scale between neuroticism and academic achievement. The differences among the highest and the lowest academic achievers on neuroticism were significant (t (97) = 4.37) =, p<0.01), and the results of Analysis of Variances between males and females on neuroticism showed significant differences (f (1,95) = 4.25 p<05) in favour of females, indicating an overall gender effect on personality. en_US
