The objective of this study was to investigate the correlation between Self-Control, Personality Traits, and Smartphone Addiction in Students. A total of four hundred samples (200 males and 200 females) were recruited using purposive sampling. The research design employed was correlation study design. Information was gathered from various governmental, private, and academic institutions. The age range of the participants was between 18 and 25 years old, with a mean age of 21.07 and a standard deviation of 1.0684. Three scales were utilized in the study: the Brief Self-Control Scale (Tangney et al., 2004), the Ten-item Personality Inventory (Gosling et al., 2003), and the Smartphone Addiction Scale (Kwon et al., 2013). A correlation analysis was conducted to determine the association between self-control, personality traits, and smartphone addiction. An independent sample t-test was utilized to evaluate gender differences between males and females. Regression analysis was employed to examine the predictors. Process analysis is employed for the purpose of moderation. The results of our study indicate that self-control is positively correlated with personality traits and negatively associated with Smartphone Addiction. Furthermore, no gender differences were seen between males and females. The study found that personality qualities did not have any influence on Smartphone Addiction. However, personality traits, family system, socio-economic status, and the number of hours spent using a mobile phone were significant predictors of Smartphone Addiction
