A total of 30 sample comprising of 15 having MSD and 15 without MSD were included in the study. The purposive sampling technique was used for selection of sample. It was hypothesized that there will be no significant difference in personality dimensions such as psychoticism, extraversion, neuroticism, superstition and tendency to lie of the persons having MSD compared to persons without any MSD. The result revealed that the personality of individuals (psychoticism, neuroticism, extraversion, tendency to lie & superstition) having different types of musculoskeletal disorders (low back ache, neck pain & knee pain) is not affected as compared to individuals without any musculoskeletal disorders. Result of the study showed that there is no significant relation between personality dimension among person with or without musculoskeletal disorders. There is a wide scope of further study on the larger sample to find out the significant difference between Persons having MSD and Persons without MSD in terms of their extraversion-introversion, neuroticism, psychoticism, proneness to lie and superstition.

This study aims to see the difference between persons having musculoskeletal disorders with the persons without Musculoskeletal disorders in terms of their personality trait namely extraversion-introversion, neuroticism, psychoticism, proneness to he and superstition as measured by Eysenck Personality Questionnaire. The Hindi version of the questionnaire was used. The other questionnaire namely Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire was used for screening of MSD. A total of 30 sample comprising of 15 having MSD and 15 without MSD were included in the study. The purposive sampling technique was used for selection of sample. It was hypothesized that there will be no significant difference in personality dimensions such as psychoticism, extraversion, neuroticism, superstition and tendency to lie of the persons having MSD compared to persons without any MSD. The result revealed that the personality of individuals (psychoticism, neuroticism, extraversion, tendency to lie & superstition) having different types of musculoskeletal disorders (low back ache, neck pain & knee pain) is not affected as compared to individuals without any musculoskeletal disorders. Result of the study showed that there is no significant relation between personality dimension among person with or without musculoskeletal disorders. There is a wide scope of further study on the larger sample to find out the significant difference between Persons having MSD and Persons without MSD in terms of their extraversion-introversion, neuroticism, psychoticism, proneness to lie and superstition.
