A Study of Personality and Marital Adjustment among House Wives and Working Women
The present study was undertaken to examine the effect of Neuroticism and Extraversion dimension of personality on marital adjustment among house wives and working women. The sample of the present study consisted of 200 Young married women (age range 25 -35 ) drawn equally from the urban population of house wives and working women. To asses the marital adjustment and personality marital adjustment Questionnaire and Eysenck Personality Inventory (E.P.I.) were administered to the sampled subjects. The findings revealed that the high marital adjustment groups of both house wives and working women have scored less on Neuroticism and greater on Extraversion dimension of personality than low marital adjustment groups of house wives and working women. The results also showed that the house wives have better marital adjustment than working women. The statistical comparison of the high and the low marital adjustment groups differed significantly in terms of their scores on Neuroticism and Extraversion dimension of personality.
