The present study has been conducted to study Perceived Stress and Personality Type (A & B) among Acute Myocardial Infarction patients across various demographic variables. 100 myocardial infarction patients (60 males and 40 females) were taken from different hospitals of district Srinagar (Kashmir). The data was collected on the basis of AB Behavioural Pattern Scale (ABBPS) by Dhair and Jain (2001) and perceived stress was measured with the help of Perceived Stress Scale developed by Cohen, Kamarck and Mermelstein (1983). Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient showed that there is a significant correlation between Perceived Stress and Personality Type (A&B). Mean differences among MI on perceived stress were found insignificant on age and family status and significant on gender and educational qualification. No significant differences were found on any of the demographic variable among personality types (A/B).
