However, no significant relationship was found between personality trait openness and conscientiousness and coping strategies. Also, the excitement style (P = 0.745; Beta = 0.745), extroversion (P = 0.331, Beta = 0.300), neuroticism (P =.0000 Beta =.288) and agreement P = 0.098 Beta =.098) can predict Alexithymia in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). But age, gender, and education were not good predictors of the Alexei time in Copd patients.
