Objectives: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between personality of parent and offspring, and offspring`s psychological adaptation. Methods: We examined temperament and character of 65 parents and their offspring (measured using the Junior Temperament and Character Inventory and Temperament and Character Inventory) and offspring`s internalizing (anxiety, depression) and externalizing (delinquency, hyperactivity) problems. Results: The internalizing problems of offspring were positively associated with harm avoidance (HA) of offspring and parent, and negatively associated with self-directedness (SD) of offspring and parent. The externalizing problems of offspring were positively associated with novelty seeking of offspring, and were predicted by SD of parent. The interaction between parent`s HA and offspring`s HA predicted higher levels of anxiety of offspring. Conclusion: The association between the offspring`s personality and internalizing and externalizing problems can depend on the personality of the parent.
