One of the ways to study personality in Indian psychology through concept of Triguna. When three gunas are balanced the personality is balanced but if there is disturbance in any of the three gunas their personality gets disturbed. Triguna talks about three gunas Sattva (Purity knowledge,), Rajas (Anger, Action) Tamas (Laziness, apathy). The emotions we experience are closely related to the dominant guna in us. And therefore, another concept studied is that of anger. State anger is a subjective emotion accompanied by muscle tension and stimulation of the autonomous nervous system; its intensity may deviate from quite mild to quite strong. However, Trait anger is perceived in far more situations as displeasing and frustrating, and accordingly it is described as a tendency to have rather frequent state anger. The main purpose of the present research is to see the relationship between Sattva, Rajas, Tamas and State and Trait anger, gender difference on Sattva rajas Tamas and State and Trait anger are also studied. Sample size of 100 was taken. Incidental sampling techniques was used. It is an exploratory research. Results showed that there was a positive relationship between Triguna and Anger –Sattva guna and State and Trait anger, Rajas guna and State and Trait anger, Tamas guna and State an Trait anger. Gender on basis of guna and anger result reveals that there was no significance difference between boys and girls on the basis of guna and anger.
