Forty quality product inspectors, and forty other executive personnel constituting the control group were administered the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) which gives scores on Psychoticism, Extraversion, Neuroticism and Lie Scales. The responses of the two groups were subjected to a T-test statistical analysis, in which the four personality dimensions served as dependent variables. Matching was on age, sex and working experience. Quality product inspectors showed significant lower mean scores on Psychoticism and Extraversion scales and significant higher mean score on Neuroticism scale. It is concluded that the findings obtained point to normative features of the quality product inspectors.
