Personality Traits In Relation To Mental Well-Being among University Students
The objective of the present study was to examine the relationship between personality traits and mental well-being among students. A total of 200 post graduate participants aged 20-25 were randomly selected from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh. Personality traits were measured by HEXACO-PI-R by Lee & Ashton (2006) and mental well-being was measured by Warwick Edinburg mental well-being Scale by Tennant, Fishwick, Platt, Joseph, & Stewart-Brown, (2006). Correlation and independent t-test was used for analyzing the data. The result showed that there was significant correlation between mental well-being and personality traits and the value of r=.220 for overall students and the value of r=.425 for male students and for female students value of r=.336. Further, independent t-test found that there was significant difference of personality traits in terms of gender. Early detection for indications of mental health problems and understanding factors contributing to stress among students would promote better understanding of mental health in future and findings suggest that there should do more researches about students’ mental health and personality traits.
