The aim of this study is to analyze problem solving skills of university students according to their personal characteristics. We try to find out if there is a difference in problem solving skills considering sex, class and personality harmony characteristics. Personal data form, Problem Solving Scale and Hacettepe Personality Scale are used as measurement tools. The results of the study indicate that there is no difference between male and female students in problem solving skills. Problem solving skills of students differ in class level. Senior students’ problem solving skills are higher than others. Junior students’ problem solving skills are higher than freshman students. There is a positive relationship between problem solving skills and personality harmonies of students.
