The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of stuttering on personality characteristics in male individuals. Methods: In this study, 31 stuttered men aged upper than 18 years old were compared with another 32 unstuttered men of the same age and education in terms of their personality characteristics by applying the Neo-FFI test.
