The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships between psychoticism and self-awarencess, slef – acceptance, and gender in normal subjets and to determine the validity of self-rating questionnaire in relation to Eysenck's psychoticism scale. (It was hypothesized that such relationships do not exist to a significant degree between these variables). A group of 72 counselling and education students who were enrolled in the fall semester of 1994, participated in this study. Three questionnaire were administered to all subjects: a sociometric questionnaire, the adjustment questionnaire, and the Eysenck Pychoticism Scale.  Then the scores of self awareness and self-acceptance were computed. The results showed no significant correlation between either psychoticism and slef-awareness or psychoticism and self acceptance. The point biserial correlation between psychoticism and gender, however, was significant (P<0.025). Men significantly scored higher than women on the psychoticism scale. The results also indicate that with regard to desirable personality characterisitcs, like extroversion – ontroversion, the subjects' responses in self-rating scales are cogruent with the results of standard personality questionnaires but with increasing undesirability of personality characterisistcs (like neuroticism and psychoticism respectively), the subjects' responses are influenced by self-serving bias and become increasingly less related to standard personality questionnaires and therefore less valid.
