Abstract This study examines the restrospective relationship between neuroticism, psychoticism, extraversion, immune system functioning and HIV knowledge on the failure to practice safer sex by persons with HIV disease. As predicted, psychoticism and lack of HIV knowledge correlated positively with failure to practice safer sex. Contrary to prediction, the correlation between neuroticism and unsafe sexual behavior was not significant. The possible implications of these findings are discussed.
