Abstract


This study was a part of an ICSSR project running under the author and it was aimed to find out the impact of cultural variation, chronological age and marital circumstances on temperament and well being. 240 participants from Kumaun were taken and they were arranged according to the requirements of 3-way factorial design with 3 types of culture (Bhotia, Buxa, & General Kumauni), two levels of chronological age (25-30 years & 55-60 years) and 2 types of marital circumstances (wives living with husbands & wives living far from husbands) 1.e; 20 participants per cell. Measures of temperament and well-being were given to them. Data were analyzed by three way analysis of variation and it was found that all variables laid their impact on temperament and well-being as main effects and interaction mode. Inter correlation analysis result showed that all dimensions were closely knitted. Findings were interpreted in terms of cultural variation, chronological age and marital circumstances as effectors of temperament and well-being. At last, suggestions were made to raise the mental faculty and personality profiles of tribal society.
