Background and aims: Personality characteristics and conformity are the most important factors in the psychological predispositions to high-risk behaviors like addiction. This study was performed to study the relationship between addiction potentiality and personality, conformity, and gender among pre-university students in Kerman, Iran. Methods: In this descriptive–analytic study, 118 students were selected by cluster sampling in region 2, Kerman. Data were collected by the five big personality factors, Conformity 72-L, and addiction potentiality tests. Data were analyzed using the mean, standard deviation, Pearson correlation co-efficienct, multi regression, and t-test. Results: The findings showed a significant positive relationship between conformity and addiction potentiality (P<0.01). In addition, addiction potentiality had a significant positive correlation with neuroticism personality traits and a significant negative correlation with conscientiousness and agreeableness as personality characteristics (P<0.01). T-test analysis showed that there was no difference in terms of conformity among girls and boys (P<0.05), but boys were more prone to addiction potentiality than girls in a significant difference (P<0.05). Conclusion: Those who have high conformity and vulnerability in terms of their personality are prone to addiction. Therefore, it is necessary in educational, preventive and treatment programs of addiction to emphasize on these psychological characteristics
