This study examines personal traits of management graduates such as Motivation to Lead, Decision Making and Interpersonal Behavior and their impact on Psychological well-being. 83 management students were selected for the study. The tools used were Decision Making Style Inventory (Rowe and Mason, 1987), FIRO-B (Waterman and Rogers, 2004), Motivation to lead scale by Chan and Drasgow (2001), Psychological Well-being scale (Ryff,1989). SPSS software was used to analyze the data for t test and Product moment correlation. The analysis of data reveals that Motivation to Lead, Decision Making Styles, Interpersonal Behavior and Psychological Well-being are significantly correlated. However, the gender difference was found in expressed-control and wanted-affection behavior. Succinctly the directive decision making style varied significantly among different gender. While looking at the work experience, the students who had work experience significantly varied from fresh graduates students in expressed control behavior, conceptual decision making style and non-calculative motivation as well.
