The present study examined adolescents’ personality across four different social classes (Class I, Class II, Class III, and Class IV) of families in G.B Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. Families falling under social class I of the university had parent(s) working as Professor and Associate Professor in the university; those falling under social class II  had parent(s) working as Assistant Professor or equivalent and Doctor in the university; those falling under social class III  had parent(s) working as Accountant, Supervisor, Lab Technician and Clerk in the university and those falling under social class IV  had parent(s) working as Attendant, Driver, Peon, CRC laborer, Gardner and Sweeper. Forty adolescents were randomly selected as respondents from each social class of families making a total of 160 respondents for the present study. Multi-Dimensional Assessment of Personality Scale was administered to adolescents to assess their personality. Adolescents from social class I and social class II were seen to have significantly higher academic achievement, competition, creativity, enthusiasm, excitability, general ability, guilt proneness, individualism, innovation, mental health, morality, self control, sensitivity, self sufficiency, social warmth, tension in comparison to their counterparts from social class III and social class IV. Whereas, adolescents from social class III and IV were assessed to be significantly more adaptable, bold and leading than those from social class I and II.
