The present investigation was undertaken to resolve the controversy regarding clouding of results on the dimension of extraversion and performance. Hence the impulsivity component of extraversion was separated from sociability to see its effect on performance in terms of letter cancellation task and Anagram task under instructionally induced stress in the two sexes. The general pattern in three factor interaction reveals that high impulses coupled with stress performed less efficiently than their counterparts in both the sexes.
