The present study aims to investigate the effects of intra-family parameters; educative styles and academic knowledge of parents and their economic condition on teenagers' personality and behavior. The present study is a descriptive survey. The statistical sample of the study included 166 teenage students from Baku, Azerbaijan and 332 of their parents were selected through stratified random sampling based on the size of the population. The data were collected through Eysenck personality questionnaire specifically designed for adolescents and adults along with Baumrind parental authority questionnaire. Results from data analysis revealed that there is a significant relationship between educative styles of parents and adolescent personality types, that is, teenagers' personality types differ according to their parents' parenting styles. Parents with logical parenting styles tend to have children with more extrovert personalities. The relationship between fathers' educational level and educational models of parents is also significant. And, the relationship between mothers' educational level and educational models of parents is significant as well. The study failed to find a significant relationship between personality types in adolescents and their residence; however, the relationship between their personality types and economic status of the family is significant. Since findings of the present study approve the relationship between parenting styles of parents and personality types of adolescents, it is strongly suggested that parents be taught the outcomes of strict and easy going parenting through educational programs.
