Many studies have been done on identifying the personality traits of Generation Y which is broadly categorized as the population born between 1980-2000. These studies found out that this generation is extremely smart, tech-savvy, confident, upbeat, open minded, creative, optimistic and independent, ideally suited for today’s new corporations. They are excellent multi-taskers and prefer text-based communication styles through e-mail and text messages over face-toface interaction, vastly different from preceding generations of generation Xs. They demand for a flexible working lifestyle and the freedom to develop and advance them- which shows that they are not intimidated by authority or afraid to speak up. They seek supervisors and mentors who are highly engaged in their professional development. Generation Y have a totally different approach towards their life and career as they prefer challenging and meaningful career and work environment. They are eager to learn and willing to try new pedagogical tools that engage their creative minds. In the light of the previous researches this paper attempts to validate these personality traits of the Gen Y for the selected sample of the population. Keywords: Generation Y, Personality, Personality Traits, Professional Domain.
