The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between suicidal ideation, personality traits and the reasons for living among students. Adult Suicidal Ideation Questionnaire (ASIQ, Reynolds 1991) was used as a measure for examining the suicidal ideation, and College Students' Reasons for Living Inventory (CSRLI, Westefeld et al., 1992) was used for the assessment of importance of the individual reasons for living, and both of them were translated in Croatian. In the first part of the study, in which 374 participants (72 male students and 302 female students) took part in, the psychometric evaluation of two measures was carried out. Exploratory factor analysis revealed the one-factor structure of ASIQ, while 5-factors were extracted in CSRLI, i.e., one less compared to the original version. In the second part of the study, in which 245 female students participated, among ASIQ i CSRLI, the Croatian version of International Personality Item Pool – IPIP 50 (Mlačić i Goldberg, 2007) was used for the investigation of personality traits, along with some of sociodemographic data. One-way ANOVA showed that the female students with less frequency of suicidal ideation, the reasons for living on the subscales Survival and Coping Beliefs, College and Future-Related Concerns, Moral Objections and Responsibility to Friends and Family evaluate significantly more important for not committing the suicide compared to the female students with more frequency of suicidal ideation. Also, there was established that the female students with less frequency of suicidal ideation achieved significantly higher results at the dimensions of extraversion and emotional stability in relation to the female students with more frequency of suicidal ideation. Further, it was shown that emotional stability and CSRLI subscales – Survival and Coping Beliefs and Moral Objections are significant predictors in explaining the variance of the suicidal ideation. Extraversion, conscientiousness and agreeableness were related with all CSRLI subscales, except with the subscale Fear of Suicide and Social Disapproval. Emotional stability was related with the subscales Survival and Coping Beliefs and Moral Objections.
