“Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence”- B. R. Ambedkar

Education and human existence go hand in hand and students are the light bearer of the bright future of any country. But why are students at unrest? This study aims to find the relationship between personality type of students and their level of unrest. And the factors contributing to high levels of student unrest. Student Unrest Measuring Scale (by Dr. Vineeta Khanna, 1980) and Type-A/B Behavioral Pattern Scale (by Upinder Dhar and Manisha Jain, 2009) were used for measuring 782 students of AMU, Aligarh. Results showed that personality type A is having a significant positive correlation (r = .739) with student unrest while personality type B is having a significant negative correlation (r = -.635) with student unrest. Not only this, but both personality types can significantly predict the levels of unrest in a student.
