ABSTRACT

The personality, as the outer garment of the character, manifests on different fronts of human actions and is assessed in an organization through several parameters, the so-called personality traits and dimensions. One popular approach used for this purpose is that of Jung which is based on four cognitive styles of psychology. The personality theory of Jung, in fact, yields four sharp categories of personality using two opposite ways of gathering information, namely sensation and intuition and another pair of two opposite ways of evaluating information, namely thinking and feeling. These different ways of gathering and evaluating information combine to form matrix of four problem-solving behaviors in cognitive psychology. Using the basics of Vedic Science, in particular the science of the Self (as developed earlier through the patomic model of human Being [1]), a deeper foundation to this scheme of classification of Jung is suggested in the present work. While investigating the ingredients of personality at the most fundamental level within this frame work, certain clues to improving the personality are also given. Further, with reference to an integrated personality (in terms of integrated body, mind and soul towards the success of an action) a personality creation mechanism is suggested which yields a new classification scheme on the basis of Vedic Science. It is argued that modern methods for assessing the personality while lack in assessing the spiritual content in the personality, the scheme suggested here, however, is rich enough for this purpose.
