Chandreyee Roy | Dr. Guneet Inderjit Kaur


Abstract: The aim of the research was to study perceived stress, personality and decision making styles among Karnataka Police Officers. A number of 48 Non-Gazetted police officers from Karnataka were selected using purposive and convenient sampling method having work experience ranging minimum 3 years to maximum 16 years. Perceived Stress Scale by Sheldon Cohen (1983), IAS Rating Scale by Mathew (1995) and General Decision Making Styles Scale by Scott and Bruce (1995) were administered on the sample. Spearman’s Rank Correlation was used to obtain the results and it showed no significant correlation between the perceived stress, personality and decision making styles among Karnataka Police Officers and hence proved the three hypotheses, however one of the domain of decision making style that is avoidant decision making styles was positive significant correlation with perceived stress and the other domain of personality that is inertia, has a positive significant correlation with perceived stress. The same domain of personality that is inertia has a negative significant correlation with the rational decision making style. Therefore, it can be said that there is no significant correlation between perceived stress, personality and decision making styles among Karnataka Police Officers.
