Background and Objectives: Suicidal ideations, interpersonal relationships problems, self-compassion, personality characteristics, and emotion seeking are among the factors that some of them are less investigated in suicide attempters yet. Thus, the goal of the current research was to provide the psychological profile of suicide attempters by considering the mentioned factors.
Materials and Methods: The study method was descriptive. The sampling method was accessible. The sample size was 69. All members of the sample group underwent the psychological interview and completed Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation, Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory, Sensation Seeking Scale of Zuckerman, Inventory of Interpersonal Problems, and Self-Compassion Scale.
Results: Depression was the most important factor for a suicide attempt. 62.7%, who had attempted once, were at a low risk of second suicide attempt. 41.5% suffered from histrionic and 30.2% suffered from debasement disorders. Thrill and adventure seeking score was the highest score on Sensation Seeking Scale. 50.9% suffered numerous interpersonal problems. The highest and lowest scores of the Self-Compassion Scale were over-identification and common humanity, respectively.
Conclusions: The high risk of suicide attempt in patients who had attempted more than once, is a major concern. Some abnormal personality characteristics, high thrill and adventure seeking, problems in interpersonal relationships, and self-compassion were confirmed in suicide attempters, which need early attention for improving the mental health and decreasing the further suicide attempt risk
