Dr. Swapna Ray Barma
The present investigation has been conducted with the aim to differentiate between the selected personality traits and physical fitness of sedentary women of the three different communities in three different districts of West Bengal. According to the design of the study 225 sedentary women (75 General Caste, 75 Scheduled Caste and 75 Scheduled Tribe) were randomly selected as the subjects. For personality traits the data were collected by administering Big Five Inventory which measures only two dimensions of personality, extraversion and consciousness. In respect of physical fitness the muscular strength endurance by sit-up and cardio-respiratory endurance by 1-mile run-walk have been measured. Mean and Standard deviation was calculated as descriptive statistics and to find out the inter-group difference t-test was conducted. In both traits the three sedentary groups were not significantly different from each other. Under the sit–up score the three Sed-groups were statistically not significant In the cardio respiratory endurance score the difference between SC and ST-groups was significant. From the results it was concluded that in the North Bengal region of India the communitically all the sedentary women were bear the same personality traits.
