ABSTRACT
Gender is one of the core aspects of human development that plays a profound role in shaping people and continues to impact throughout life. It also determines social status and roles played by individual in family and society. Further as we strive to reach an understanding of individuals through their personality, the role of gender in personality formation becomes evident. Unfortunately society blindly accepts adjectives associated with masculinity such as strong, rational, prudent, active, objective and femininity as weak, irrational, impulsive, passive, subjective, which is the indicator gender discrimination and bias existing in society. In addition decisions related to education, career, marriage and personal life have root in gender and gender wise personality adjustments are made regarding the same.
