Applying an Indian personality model on a German sample: finding the three Gunas in Germans
The aim of the study was to improve on the attempt of Seiffert & Roy (2018) to test the applicability of a direct translation of Roy &Sharma SRT-Questionnaire by adapting the items not only in terms of language but also in terms of content. The scale prepared by Seiffert & Roy was improved and administered on German sample. The new data was subjected to factor analysis and compared with previous analyses. The findings suggest that the changed questionnaire fits the original suggested division into components distinctly worse than the data which was surveyed with the questionnaires version which was developed by Seiffer & Roy (2018). Seiffert & Roy`s questionnaire was more successful and were accountable for 56.67% of all variability. Interesting findings were the correlations between proneness to flow with sattvic traits. In future research, comparison of more valid triguna-scales (for example the original one designed by Roy & Sharma) with adapted flow-scales inside the Indian context might show more concise correlations, as the Triguna theory seems more applicable on people with an Indian background.
