A total of 375 engineers were selected based on Morgan table that completed 3 types of questionnaires: Torrance questionnaire (verbal section), (NEO-FFI) questionnaire and GHQ-28 questionnaire. The significant level in this study was considered as 0.05. This study was descriptive and correlation based. The sampling method was random. The study was a descriptive – correlative. Result: Correlation and regression analysis showed that there was a significant relationship between creativity (fluidity, flexibility, innovation, expansion) with five factors of personality (Neuroticism, Extraversion, Conscientiousness, Openness, Agreeableness) and mental health (physical symptoms, anxiety and insomnia, depression, social function).  So regression analysis showed that personality factors (neuroticism, extraversion, flexibility) are better models to predict creativity.
