The current research aims to determine the effectiveness of listening to spiritual texts on the personality components of couples. The research methodology is experimental with pretest, posttest and follow-up. The population includes all of the couples residing at phase 2 of Ekbatan located in Tehran, and among those 30 couples were put into two groups of 30-individuals which means an experimental group and a control group. The NEO Costa inventory was used for collecting data. Data were analyzed by the use of MANCOVA. Finding showed that a significant difference exists between the adjusted means of two groups in neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientious. Also findings showed that listening to spiritual texts by couples significantly affects the five personality components of couples in experimental group compared to the control group. Individuals who have listened to spiritual texts have reported less neuroticism, more extraversion, more openness, more agreeableness and more conscientious than the control group.
