Neuroticism and (low) extraversion reliably predict depression. However, for immigrant-origin youth, this association might differ by levels of American and native identity. This study examined unique and interactive effects of these four factors on depression in immigrant-origin college students. American identity buffered, while native identity exacerbated, the negative effects of neuroticism on depression.
