Abstract : In recent years scientists in every nation have come to realize that voluntary control of behavior is of primary importance if one hopes to establish an ordered society or even to maintain a society. Meditation has been known and practiced by Asian people, especially Indians, for many hundreds of years. With the aid of the biofeedback technique, it is believed that the study of altered states of consciousness, creativity, parapsychology, personality type, psychosomatic medicine, therapy, and education, etc., could be greatly enhanced. The paper is concerned with the interrelationship among meditation, personality type and brain wave production using biofeedback techniques. Emphasis is placed on the effect of meditation on personality type changes. (Modified author abstract)
