A collective analysis is made on freshmen of three universities and the results are as followings: The average total PDQ-R score is 29.81, the rate of personality dysfunction is 17.1%, and the rate of serious personality dysfunction is 3.7%. Relevant analyses show that the degree of personality disorder is directly proportional to parental rejection, overprotection, and spoiling, and that it is inversely proportional to parental emotion. A mono-factor analysis shows that sex, major, family background, and parents' relationship are the factors influencing personalities of university students. The study reaches the conclusion that attention should be paid to personality dysfunction and factors responsible for it, such as family background, parental rearing, and parents' relationship.
