Abstract:

Personality traits, which can be described as differences between individuals regarding their behavior, thoughts, and feelings, can be seen as relatively stable in different situations and over time (Specht et al., 2014). A pair of 90 twins in the age group of 3-6 years from five cultural zones of state Haryana was taken. A Five Factor Personality Questionnaire (Cathy, 2011) was used for assessing the personality traits of preschool twins. Pearson correlation test was applied to see the correlations of personality traits among monozygotic twins, and the results are portrayed that agreeableness of children had negative and significant correlations with extraversion (r= -0.32*) except consciousness (r= -0.12) and openness (r=-0.14) which was negative but non- significant correlated agreeableness. Extraversion was positive and significant correlation with consciousness (r= 0.39*) and openness (r= 0.44*) but neuroticism was positive and non-significant correlations with extraversion. Neuroticism was positive and significant correlations with consciousness (r=0.32*) and openness (r=0.33*). Consciousness was positive and significant correlations with openness (r=0.43*). Openness was positive and significant correlations with extraversion (r= 0.44*), neuroticism (r= 0.33*) and consciousness (r= 0.43*) but was negative and significant correlations with agreeableness (r=-0.14*).
