The aim of this study was to examine of the role of The Affective and Emotional Composite Temperament (AFECT) model in predicting the symptoms of dysthymic Disorder (DD). Materials & Methods: In this study, 400 students were evaluated using the Affective and Emotional Composite Temperament Scale (AFECTS) and Cornell dysthymia rating scale. Multivariate regression was used in order to analyze the data. Results: The results showed that all dimensions of emotional and affective AFECT model, except for fear and euphoria were significantly associated with the symptoms of DD. The results of the regression analysis showed that sensitivity, volition, coping, depression, anxious, hyperthymia, cyclothymic, dysphoric, volatile and apathetic could be predicted significantly symptoms of DD.
