The present study is an attempt to evaluate personality Traits of adolescent boys. We have compared personality trait of normal weight, overweight & underweight adolescent & effect of counseling on their personality. A random sample of 530 adolescent boys (one private English Medium and one Government Hindi Medium School) between the ages of 10-18 years during the period of August 2008 to August 2009 constituted the material for this study. Weight, Height and BMI and personality trait were evaluated. Overweight adolescent boys were found to be more abstract thinking, expedient, depressive, controlled, relaxed and sound follower. Post counseling they were found to be more concrete thinking, tense, conscientious and zestful. Normal weight adolescent boys were found to be more reserved, aggressive, concrete thinking, excitable, shy and relaxed on pre counselling data analysis. Post counseling data they were found to be milder and socially bold and this change was statistically significant. Underweight adolescent boys were found to be more reserved, concrete thinking, phlegmatic, aggressive, self reliant and relaxed. Post counselling data analysis showed statistically significant changes and they were found to be more abstract thinking, group dependent and sound follower. Conclusion: Adolescent psychological need should be assessed and there counselling should be done as per their need because personality pattern of overweight, underweight and normal weight adolescent varies.
