This study uses the BFI-28 measuring instrument adapted by Ramdhani (2012) and the cyberbullying scale measuring instrument by Permatasari & Wu (2021) which refers to Willard's theory (2005). The analysis technique used is multiple linear regression test. The results found that there was an influence of five personality factors on cyberbullying. The results showed that the extraversion trait had an effect of 7.42% on cyberbullying behavior, the neuroticism trait had an effect of 3.30% on cyberbullying behavior, the agreeableness trait had an effect of 2.29% on cyberbullying behavior, and the conscientiousness trait had an effect of 1.86% on cyberbullying behavior. Among these four traits, the extraversion trait is the highest which has the most significant influence on cyberbullying behavior.
