Based on the theoretical analysis, with first-hand data collection and using multiple regression models, this study explored the relationship between agreeableness, extraversion, stressor and stress response and figured out interactive effect of agreeableness, extraversion, and stressor on stress response. We draw on the following conclusions: (1) the interaction term of stressor (work) and agreeableness can negatively predict physiological stress response; (2) the interaction term of stressor (health) and agreeableness can negatively predict physiological stress response; (3) the interaction term of stressor (family) and agreeableness can negatively predict physiological stress response; (4) the interaction term of stressor (social) and agreeableness can negatively predict physiological stress response; (5) the interaction term of stressor (work) and extraversion can negatively predict physiological stress response; (6) the interaction term of stressor (health) and extraversion can negatively predict physiological stress response; (7) the interaction term of stressor (family) and extraversion can negatively predict physiological stress response; (8) the interaction term of stressor (social) and extraversion can negatively predict physiological stress response.
