This book purports to present the nature of Indian Personality as shaped by the country's developmental environment. In giving scientific assistance, a Counsellor needs to be primarily conversant with the behavioural norms prevalent and accepted in that particular culture. Even the nature and extent of deviance can be ascertained only in the context of a knowledge of societal norms of behaviour. This thesis has been systematically expounded and scientifically studies in the present volume. It is expected that thisbook will motivate professionals in the field of guidance and Counselling to plan and execute culture-based programmes of Personnel Services for individuals of this country. Dr. Dave's report of her purposeful study of the Indian Personality in its Development Background should prove to be of hreat value to practising Counsellors as well as Teachers and students of this discipline at the post-graduate and graduate levels. With the detailed expositions of Inida's multidimensional environment in a developmental manner, the book should also serve as a very useful reference material for scholars, Anthropology, Education, History, Geography and Political Science etc.
