A creative person in the management field holds the key for success. The organizational excellence depends on innovative ideas of employee, who possesses divergent thinking, and harmony of mind and soul, and balance of temperament. Triguna theory of personality based on Samkhya philosophy of yoga (Kisor, 2001) describes that balance of gunas for exhibiting creativity. Present study describes the triguna personality of 40 managers from different metropolitan cities of India and their nature of creativity. IAS rating scale, and Wallach and Kogan verbal creativity test were the two measurement tools that were surveyed through mail. Based on the descriptive analysis, the following four types of personalities were identified: Sattvic, Rajasic, Sattvic-Rajasic, and Sattvic-Tamasic personalities. Kaur and Sinha (1992) identified that Sattvic personality performance is superior than other personalities, and correspondingly the results on creativity scale show that all personality groups have a urge to be creative, but managers with Sattvic personality are able to display their creative abilities very exceptionally than other groups, thus showing their balance and harmony of mind and soul.
