ABSTRACT

This study was designed to examine the convergence between Cattellian and Zuckerman’s models of personality on Indian subjects. To realize the main objective, 202 students with the age ranging from 19 to 28 years were selected from various PG departments of K.U.K.(Haryana). The subjects were tested with Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16 PF) and Zuckerman-Kuhlman Personality Questionnaire (ZKPQ) after proper rapport. Obtained data were analysed by using Descriptive Statistics, Pearson’s Correlation, and Principal Component Factor Analysis. Obtained correlations depict some overlap between some factors of personality indexed by 16 PF and ZKPQ. Factor Analysis yielded eight factors named as Extroversion/Sociability; Impulsive-Sensation Seeking; Adjustment; Pathemia; Super Ego Strength; Affectothymia; Subduedness v/s Independence; and Activity.
