Summary/Abstract: The research subject of child amnesia, in spite of many studies, leaves a lot of question marks in terms of its mechanisms and causes. Childhood amnesia covers the period when an individual evolves, acquires new skills, and develops his or her personality. Hundred and fifty students have been subjected to a questionnaire designed to measure the duration of childhood amnesia. They have also been subjected to the NEO-FFI personality questionnaire by Costa and McCrae. The relationships between the duration of amnesia in children and personality traits such as Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness and Consciousness were sought. It has turned out that there is a relationship between the duration of childhood amnesia and Openness to experience, Neuroticism and Conscientiousness.
