Background: Academic destructive behaviors are influenced by multiple factors such as the temperament and emotional security. This study aimed to describe academic destructive behaviors based on temperament and emotional security.
Materials and methods: This correlative study recruited a sample of 503 students, selected through random stratified multi-stage sampling. The  statistical population included all secondary school students in Bushehr city. Data were collected using Temperament Inventory, Emotional Security in the Family System Inventory and Academic Destructive Behaviors Scale. Data were analyzed through the structural equation modeling (SEM) using the Amos 22 software and SPSS 21.
Results: Results showed a meaningful relationship between the variable of temperamental traits and both academic destructive behaviors (β= -0.36, P< 0.001) and the emotional security (β=0.52, P< 0.001). There was also a direct meaningful relationship between the variable of emotional security and academic destructive
behaviors (β= -0.59, P< 0.001). Besides, the temperamental traits, indirectly and through the mediation of emotional security, showed a significant relationship with academic destructive behaviors (β=- 0.31, P< 0.001).
Conclusion: Given the findings of the present study, it is suggested that temperament and emotional security be addressed in planning for education, training and mental health programs.
