Umesh Kumar and Sanjeev Kumar
The present study was aimed to establish the relationship between personality traits and academic achievement of adolescents. It was hypothesized that there would be a significant correlation between personality traits and academic achievement. To verify the hypothesis, 60 college students were contacted personally and rapport were established. NEO-FFI and G.P.A. scale were administered on them to collect the data. The collected data were analysed by applying Pearson’ correlation in SPSS 20 software. The results show that neuroticism is negatively correlated with academic achievement while conscientiousness is positively correlated with academic achievement. Other personality traits don’t show any significant correlation with academic achievement.
