Harm avoidance (HA) is a trait measured with the Cloninger personality questionnaires, Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire (TPQ) and Temperament and Character Inventory. The two other traits of TPQ are novelty seeking and reward dependence.

The trait is related to the neuroticism trait in the NEO family of personality questionnaires.

In TPQ there are four subdimension of HA:

  1. Anticipatory worry versus unhibited optimism
  2. Fear of uncertainty versus confidence
  3. Shyness with strangers versus gregariousness
  4. fatigability and asthenia versus vigor

"Harm avoidance" is also a primary trait scales in the Multidimensional Personality Questionnaire.
