Personality, in broad sense, is a dynamic organization of those psycho-physical system within the individual that determines his unique adjustment to his environment. Personality is a pecularised integration of number of constituent components. The term personality encompasses physique, intellect, temperament, attitude, aptitude, character, social and emotional peculiarities etc…. There isn’t a single holistic definition till date. Hence, it would be incorrect if measured on the basis of one component. The study is aimed at analysing certain important dimensions of the personality , especially six dimensions as high/low self concept, Intro/ extroversioness, Dependence/ independence, Balance/imbalance, Temperament, adjustment ability and Anxiety. The investigation is focused on the levels or nature of personality dimensions among trainee teachers in relation to gender. Multidimensional Personality Inventory (MPI) constructed by Manjurani Agrawal was used to collect the data. The study conducted on a sample size of 100 trainee teachers including 48 male and 52 female, revealed that the female trainee teachers possess higher level of introversionness than their male counterparts but teacher trainees fall in the category of individuals with ambivert nature. Insignificant difference occurred  among trainee teachers when compared on the grounds of self concept, Temperament and adjustment ability. Both males and females were with moderate anxiety level.  The level of Depending attitude was low i.e it didn’t offer any scope for difference with respect to gender among trainee teachers.
