The aim of the study is to explore the relationship between personality variables of introversion/extroversion, stress and coping resources in women. A purposive sample of 112 named women working in the corporate sector, m the age range of 25yrs-55yrs, having in Delhi/NCR were selected. Eysenck's Maudsley Personality Inventory (1956), Perceived stress scale by Cohen (1983), and Coping Resource Inventory by Martmg and Hammer(1987) were used to collect data. Statistical analysts was done using independent t- test and correlation coefficient. The results obtained suggest that introverts experience more stress than extroverts. A significant difference between the two was obtained with respect to the stress experienced by them. However no significant difference was found between introverts and extroverts in terms of coping resources. An inverse relationship between stress and coping resources (& its dimensions) was found among introverts.
