Abstract


Almost every day we describe and assess the personalities of the people around us. The present paper includes two different dimension of personality, i.e., Depressive and Spiritual Personality. People with depressive personality have a generally gloomy outlook on life, themselves, the past and the future. On the other hand, spiritual personality can be defined as the one who knows how to anchor his lifestyles around his noble attitude towards others and follow the path of moral rectitude. The main objective of the present study is to examine: a) difference between post-graduate male and female students on depressive personality and spiritual dimension of personality; and b) difference between management and non-management students on depressive and spiritual dimension of personality. The Beck Depressive Inventory, developed by Beck, Steer, and Brown (1996) and Spiritual Personality Inventory, developed by Husain, Luqman, and Jahan (2012) were used to collect the data. The sample was collected from 100 P.G. students (50 males and 50 females) among different professional courses like M.B.A, M.tech, M.Sc etc at Amity University, Gurgaon in Haryana. Data was collected by purposive sampling method and analyzed by t-test for finding the comparison between the groups. The result indicates that there is a) significant difference between males and females on depressive dimension of personality and b) significant difference between management and non-management students on spiritual dimension of personality.
