Author(s): Dr. Neeta N Kashyap

Abstract: The main objective of the present study is to compare the personality characteristics of yoga practitioner and non-yoga practitioner working women employed in white collared jobs. To conduct the study, 37 yoga practitioner working women between 30 to 40 years of age were selected as sample. The selection of yoga practitioner working women was done from yoga centres from Nagpur city. The sample also consists of 43 non-yoga practitioner working women between 30 to 40 years of age. The sample for the present study was chosen from working women with average to high socio-economic status. Purposive sampling was used for the selection of subjects. Only those working women in a white collared career in Nagpur were selected. To assess personality characteristics of selected working women, a Hindi version of Eysenck’s PEN inventory prepared by Menon et al. (1978) was used. It was found that yoga practitioner working women were significantly less psychotic and neurotic as compared to non-yoga practitioner working women. Another personality dimension extraversion did not differ significantly between yoga practitioner and non-yoga practitioner working women. Hence it can summarily be concluded that yoga practitioner working women have better personality characteristics as compared to non-yoga practitioner working women.
