Personality correlates of altruistic behaviour among secondary school students
Author(s): Dr. Satnam Kaur
The present study was planned to investigate the personality correlates of altruistic behaviour of secondary school students. To assess personality and altruism Neo Five Factor Inventory (Costa & McCrae: 1991) and Altruism Test (Jain: 1989) tests were used. The findings indicated that there is no significant gender difference in altruistic behaviour of secondary school students. On the other hand girls have scored higher on the two dimensions of personality i.e. Extraversion and Openness whereas boys scored higher than girls on Neuroticism. There exists no significant correlation between altruism and different dimensions of personality in secondary school boys and girls.
