The Present study has been conducted to investigate the personality characteristics of secondary school teachers in relation to their locality. The study was conducted on a sample of 600 teachers of secondary schools of six districts (Lucknow, Barabanki, Hardoi, Sitapur, Unnao, Raebareli) in Uttar Pradesh. The Dimentional personality inventory (DPI-B) developed by Dr. Mahesh Bhargava (2006) was used to collect the data. The result of study revealed that no any significant difference between personality characteristics (activity, suspicious, depressive and emotional instability) of secondary school teachers belonging to urban and rural area and there was significant difference between personality characteristics (enthusiastic and assertive) of teachers belonging to urban and rural area. The teachers who belong to rural area had high level of enthusiastic and assertive personality characteristics than teachers who belong to urban area.
