ABSTRACT

This study was designed study to determine whether there is an association between personality traits and graduation stream of MBA students. This study also tested the association of personality traits with chosen specialization. The big five personality traits are measured for a sample of 706 management students through a survey developed from the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP). The chi-square results indicated association of extraversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness and openness with personality traits. Majority of high scorers came from engineering background whereas majority of low scorers came from commerce background. Maximum trait differences were observed in engineering students. Specialization choice was found to be independent of personality.

ABSTRACT

Hope as conceptualized by Dufault and Martocchio (1985) “is a multidimensional dynamic life force characterized by a confident yet uncertain expectation of achieving a future good.”Quality of Life is defined by Lehto, Ojanen and Kellokumpu-Lehtinen (2005) “as appraisal of and satisfaction with their current level of functioning as compared to what they perceive to be possible or ideal.”The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between Hope, its dimensions and Quality of Life in Caregivers of Cancer Patients. A non-probability purposive sampling method was used to draw the sample of 40 Caregivers of patients with Breast and Ovarian Cancer belonging to lower middle class and upper lower class. The Herth Hope Index (HHI) (Herth, 1992) and the Caregiver Quality Of Life Index- Cancer (CQOLC) (Weitzner, Jacobsen, Wagner, Friedland & Cox, 1999) were administered. There was significant difference in the levels of Positive Readiness & Expectancy among caregivers based on their socio-economic status. Positive Readiness & Expectancy and Interconnectedness were found to be negatively correlated with quality of life. Results indicated no significant difference in the levels of Hope and Quality of Life based on age and type of cancer.
