Abstract: The obtained results reveal some significant relationships among the measured features. The aim of this present paper is to study how personality traits from the Five‑Factor Model, type A behavior and type D personality correlate with the categories of subjective health: positive thinking, mental condition, physical activity, sensitivity to others and efficiency of action. First, neuroticism was negatively related to all measures of subjective health, whereas extraversion, conscientiousness, openness to experience were positively related to subjective health but the relations were not so strong. Second, the study indicates that subjective health is considerably improved by activity and actions but deteriorated by vulnerability, self‑consciousness and anxiety. These findings are in line with the results concerning the relationships between subjective health and type A behaviour (positive relation) and type D personality (negative relation). The correlations between agreeableness and subjective health in the study are not so clear. It may result from the fact that some constituents of this trait correlate positively and some negatively with subjective health. Additionally, deteriorated subjective health correlate with both high and low intensity of this trait and this may be another possible explanation of the above‑mentioned inconsistency.
