The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between the five personality dimensions and burnout in female aerobics coaches of Esfahan. This was a correlation research performed using survey method. The statistical population included all 400 female aerobics coaches of Esfahan. The sample volume size was estimated 160 using Cochran formula. For more security, a total of 200 questionnaires were distributed among the population using simple random sampling method 157 of which were filled out completely and were used in statistical analysis. The two questionnaires of "Maslach Burnout Inventory", and McCrae and Costa's "NEO Five Personality Inventory" were applied for data measurement. Results indicated a negative significant correlation between burnout with extroversion (r = -0.21), conscientiousness (r = -0.20), agreeableness (r = -0.18), and openness (r = -0.33) and a positive significant correlation with neuroticism (r = 0.17). Therefore, coaches with extroversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness personality traits are less likely to become burnout against stressful job factors and those with neuroticism are at a higher risk to be affected by job burnout.
