The current study aims to correlate the subscales of neuroticism with extraversion and understand the thought processes of extroverts, along with the occurrence of anxiety while participating in social engagements, if any. To assess the following, data on 43 adolescents was collected and recorded with the assistance of Eyesenk Personality Profiler version 6 (EPP6) on the Vienna Test System (VTS), which has 200 items and 3 dimensions (extroversion, neuroticism, and psychoticism). We filtered the subscale and focused our results and further discussion on extraversion and anxiety (subscale of neuroticism). The study followed a Purposive sampling technique, followed by a sample size of 43 individuals (13 females and 30 males) between the ages of 13-19 years, from Delhi Sports University. The data was assessed using the statistical method of the correlation test in the SPSS tool. The results of the data suggested that there was a significant difference between people who experienced extraversion and their lack of familiarity with anxiety. In conclusion, our findings support a negative correlation between extraversion and anxiety among adolescents; that is, extroverted individuals experience and display minimal symptoms of anxiety or neuroticism.
