Some studies have shown that personality, specifically low conscientiousness (C), low agreeableness (A) and extraversion (E), are involved in substance use . T he purpose of this study is to determine which five - factor model personality characteristics are related to alcohol, tobacco and cannabis use and study thus relationship in detail during the transition from early adolescence to adolescence . 866 students from IES Bovalar participated in this study answering the questionnaires JSNEO - S and CODIS . The Pearson correlation analyses showed that extraversion was associated with alcohol and tobacco mainly at 14 - 15 years probably because at these ages substance consumption is highly recreational and social . Low agreeableness and low conscientiousness, whom predispose antinormative behavior, are related to early substance use . Finally, cannabis use is related to extraversion and low agreeableness mainly at 14 - 15 years . This would indicate that cannabis has a social and recreational component, but at the same time, its consumption is still considered antinormative and transgressive . [-]
