Abstract:

Temperament refers to our inborn personality traits, which are genetic in nature. Gender is the range of characteristics pertaining to, and differentiating between, masculinity and femininity. Depending on the context, these characteristics may include biological sex, sex-based social structures, or gender identity. The present study was conducted in four districts namely; Hisar Fatehabad, Rohtak and Jind of Haryana state with the purpose of availability of maximum numbers of twins in the required age group. A sample of 296 pairs of twins in the age group for the study was chosen. Temperament was taken as dependent variable and gender was taken as independent variable. The Malhotra Temperament Schedule (MTS) developed by Malhotra and Malhotra (1988) was used to assess child’s temperament. Result revealed that gender was significantly associated with emotionality (c2=5.44*), but non-significantly with sociability (c2=0.35), energy (c2=0.16), distractibility (c2=2.67), rhythmicity (c2=0.19), and total temperament (c2=1.03) of twins. The results further revealed that the majority of male twins (29.8%) in low category of emotionality while as majority of female twins (82.1%) in high category of emotionality.
