Indian women worked within the framework of the family system but modern women live in two systems and play multiple roles. These multiple roles or attempt to combine work and family leads to a number of health problems and has impact on their total health. Total health includes physical fitness and well balanced social and emotional state. Some environmental factors also influence the health of a woman in many ways. Temperamental sensitivity of a person to these negative factors is called neuroticism by personality psychologists. People who are high on neuroticism are prone to experiencing a broad range of negative moods, sadness, anxiety, guilt and hostility. Low level of positive affectivity in a person may also a vulnerability factor for depression. The aim of the present study was to assess and compare the neuroticism score of govt. and private school teachers. The sample of 60 women teachers (30 from govt. school and 30 from private school) age range 25-40 years was selected for the purpose. A PGI health questionnaire N-2 by WIG and VERMA has been administered to asses the neuroticism. In results it was found that private school's women teacher have more neurotic traits as compared govt. school's women teacher.

Abstract


Indian women worked within the framework of the family system but modern women live in two systems and play multiple roles. These multiple roles or attempt to combine work and family leads to a number of health problems and has impact on their total health. Total health includes physical fitness and well balanced social and emotional state. Some environmental factors also influence the health of a woman in many ways. Temperamental sensitivity of a person to these negative factors is called neuroticism by personality psychologists. People who are high on neuroticism are prone to experiencing a broad range of negative moods, sadness, anxiety, guilt and hostility. Low level of positive affectivity in a person may also a vulnerability factor for depression. The aim of the present study was to assess and compare the neuroticism score of govt. and private school teachers. The sample of 60 women teachers (30 from govt. school and 30 from private school) age range 25-40 years was selected for the purpose. A PGI health questionnaire N-2 by WIG and VERMA has been administered to asses the neuroticism. In results it was found that private school's women teacher have more neurotic traits as compared govt. school's women teacher.
