The aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship between personality pattern and values. It was hypothesised that differences in value orientation is due to differences in personality pattern. In order to examine this hypothesis a value test (Dwivedi 1978) was administered on a sample of 250 female college students of 18 to 22 years of age. After collection of data two levels of each value have been determined. The criterion of selecting high and low value groups was M+1 and M–1 . In this way 25 subjects from each value group have been selected and they have been administered 16 P.F. personality test (consisting 16 factors). The independent variable is personality pattern and the dependent variable is value (consisting of 7 types) Eco, Pol, Theo, Rel, Mor, Aes and Social. After studying the relationship between personality and value orientation factors are found to be more important as far as the value orientation is concerned than other factor. Some of the findings are confirmed through statistical treatments.
