The present paper reports the findings of dominating areas of maladjustments and prominence of needs in neurotics compared to normals. The Vyaktitva Parakh Prashnavali for the measurement of adjustment and AAPAS Motive Test for the measurement of needs were administered on 50 neurotics - categorized in two subgroups of hysteria and anxiety neurosis, and 50 controls. Results indicate a significantly low score in the areas of health, social and emotional adjustments of the neurotic group. Hysterics showed a significant maladjustment in home area also. A trend of such maladjustment is visible in case of anxiety neurotics also but the differences are not significant. Contrasting needs of achievement and affiliation are found to be present in the anxiety patients of the clinical group. Hysterics showed dominating needs for power and security compared to normals.
