Abstract: In western psychology, personality type has been widely discussed. This Typology is but one-way of understanding “Personality”. It has some practical utility. In Ayurveda, personality types have been discussed from two angles, viz. physiological and psychological as body and mind is correlated. Psychological qualities are Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Physiological qualities are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Here, western and eastern approaches are compared to identify the points of similarities and dissimilarities.
