Dr. Ajay Karkare, Sharda Purwar

Abstract :

The objective of the present study is to determine the effect of neuroticism i.e. emotional stability/ instability on eating disorder in women. 1000 women (Ave. age 33.35 years) were selected across Indian territory i.e. from northern, eastern, central, western and southern states of India. The selected subjects were between the age range of 25 to 45 years. Random sampling method was used for selection of sample in the present study. Eating Disorder Inventory, prepared by Agashe and Karkare (2007) was used to collect data on eating disorer while Hindi version of Eysenck’s PEN inventory prepared by Menon et al. (1978) was used to assess neuroticism in selected subjects. Q1 and Q3 (i.e. percentile values at 25 and 75) statistical technique was used to divide cases into high, low and moderate level of neuroticism. Results showed that eating disorder in high neurotic women was found to be significantly higher as compared to low neurotic women. It was also observed that eating disorder in low neurotic women was significantly lower as compared to women with moderate level of neuroticism. On the basis of results it was concluded that neuroticism i.e. emotional stability may influence the development of eating disorder in women
