Summary/Abstract: In this research we examined the connection between family relations (cohe- sion and flexibility) and emotional profile of social science students. Cohesion is re- lated to the emotional connection which family members feel towards each other. Family flexibility is the ability of the family to shift leadership, roles and rules in re- lations. We expected that the characteristics of family relations would be connected with some dimensions of psychological profiles more then others. The research was conducted on students from Faculty of philosophy in Nis (N=132). We used FACES III questionnaire, by Olson and coauthors (1985) for measuring cohesion and flexibil- ity in family relations and PIE, Plutchik’s index of emotions, standardization of Petar Kostic (1997). Results showed that there were no correlations between cohesion and character’s dimensions, but when it comes to flexibility there is an important positive correlation between orientation, rejection and flexibility in family relations. There is a negative correlation between the dimensions character protection, research, depriva- tion and flexibility in family relations. Results confirmed that in the dimensions of emotional profile of the students, who estimated their family relations as low flexible, optimal flexible and high flexible. Based on this research, we deducted that family relations can affect some dimensions of personality to become more expressed.
