The research on thyroid hormones and personality traits is quite sparse and mainly focused on male forensic psychiatric populations in which the relationship between thyroid hormones and psychopathy and aggression-related personality traits has been reported. The suicidal temperament hypothesis suggests that certain personality traits such as aggression, anxiety proneness, impulsivity, and low socialization may render an individual vulnerable to the risk of suicide. The aim of this study was to… 
The hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis and personality in a sample of healthy subjects
TLDR
The data indicate that the relationship between thyroid hormones and personality in the healthy population might be rather more complex than the results obtained in clinical samples suggest.
The thyroid dysfunction of suicide attempts in major depression
TLDR
The results found TSH, ATG and ATPO might be potential biomarkers of suicide risk in MDD, indicating the significance of routine evaluation of thyroid function to better prevent suicide, and active treatment for thyroid dysfunction for intervention of suicide among MDD patients.
Thyroid hormones and adult interpersonal violence among women with borderline personality disorder
TLDR
Investigation of the relationship between thyroid hormones and expressed adult interpersonal violence in female patients with borderline personality disorder found association between T3 levels and violent/aggressive behavior earlier reported exclusively in male samples may be valid also in females with BPD.
Association of thyroid dysfunction with suicide attempts in first-episode and drug naïve patients with major depressive disorder.
TLDR
The results indicate TSH, TgAb and TPOAb may be promising biomarkers of suicide risk in MDD, suggesting the importance of regular assessment of thyroid function parameters for suicide prevention, and possible treatment for impaired thyroid function for intervention of suicide inMDD patients.
Aggressive behavior in psychiatric patients in relation to hormonal imbalance (Review)
TLDR
The hormonal imbalances that have been noted to accompany aggressive behavior in different psychiatric disorders are summarized to highlight another somatic dimension linked with this behavior.
Personality traits in attempted and completed suicide
TLDR
Differences in personality traits between suicide completers and survivors indicate that these groups may have some distinct characteristics, but no specific personality structure characterized the current sample.
Personality Factors Underlying Suicidal Behavior Among Military Youth
TLDR
Based on results, neuroticism might increase suicide, but extraversion and conscientiousness personality traits are associated with a reduced risk of suicide.
Chronotype Differences in Suicidal Behavior and Impulsivity Among Suicide Attempters
TLDR
Findings suggest that eveningness may be a risk factor for violent suicide attempts by increasing impulsivity, and a significant association between chronotype and type of suicide attempt was detected.
Neurobiological markers for personality, inflammation, and stress A naturalistic study in knee arthroplastic patients
Background: Psychiatry has strived to identify biomarkers elucidating the underlying biological mechanisms behind different disorders, to help in diagnostics and to assess treatment effects. In
Changes in thyroid function status of suicidal patients
TLDR
Local suicidal patients have higher incidence of overt thyroid disorder and lower FT3 levels compared to non-suicidal psychiatric patients and their comparison with psychiatric patients without suicide attempt or ideation is compared.

Temperament and Personality Dimensions in Suicidal and Nonsuicidal Psychiatric Inpatients
TLDR
Although suicidal psychiatric patients have MMPI-2 profiles in the pathological range, they exhibit several differences from nonsuicidal patients, indicating that patients at risk of suicide have specific temperaments as well as personality and defense mechanism profiles.
Serum levels of thyroid hormones as biological markers in a Swedish forensic psychiatric population
TLDR
The results indicate an intimate relationship between T3 and FT4, and abuse and antisocial behavior, and emphasize the importance of further studies on T3 as a biological marker for abuse, social deviance, and repeated violent behavior.
Thyroid hormone correlates of sensation seeking and anxiety in healthy human females.
TLDR
A significant negative relationship was found between the SSS score and plasma basal levels of thyroxine (T4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and some parameters of the pituitary-thyroid axis.

A comparative study performed in psychosomatic patients and healthy subjects reveals different profiles of thyroxine (T4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) correlations with personality
Temperament traits in seasonal affective disorder, suicide attempters with non-seasonal major depression and healthy controls.
TLDR
The results suggest that trait anxiety and hostility, but not impulsivity, are associated with suicidal behavior in major depression.
Markers for vulnerability to psychopathology: Temperament traits associated with platelet MAO activity
ABSTRACT: The functional linkage between platelet MAO activity and psychopathology was explored by analyzing temperamental correlates in 40 male subjects by means of scales from the Eysenck
HPT axis, CSF monoamine metabolites, suicide intent and depression severity in male suicide attempters.
TLDR
Dopaminergic regulatory mechanisms on the thyroid hormone activity may be altered in male suicide attempters and the plasma T3 showed a negative correlation with the Beck Suicide Intent Scale and the Montgomery Asberg Depression rating scale.
Dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in alcoholism.
TLDR
It is suggested that a reduction in peripheral thyroid hormones may be caused by a direct toxic effect of alcohol on the thyroid gland, which induces a central compensatory activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis with an increased TRH release.
Toward a clinical model of suicidal behavior in psychiatric patients.
TLDR
A stress-diathesis model is proposed in which the risk for suicidal acts is determined not merely by a psychiatric illness but also by a diathesis, reflected in tendencies to experience more suicidal ideation and to be more impulsive and, therefore, more likely to act on suicidal feelings.
Gonadal hormone correlates of sensation seeking and anxiety in healthy human females.
TLDR
An 'inverted U shape' relationship between sensation seeking and plasma FSH levels was showed and lower Thrill and Adventure Seeking scores were also found in subjects with higher levels of 17 beta-estradiol.
