The objective of the present study was to describe the relationships between interpersonal behavior and self-reported coping strategies in a sample of 162 university students (125 females and 37 males) in general stress and interpersonal stress situations, using the Interpersonal Adjective Scales and the Coping Strategies Inventory. The results show statistically signifcant differences about coping strategies used by participants in both situations, and signifcant correlations between interpersonal profles and coping strategies. We discussed the relationship between personality and coping from the interpersonal theory of personality point of view, and the concepts of coping styles and coping strategies.
