Perfectionism is a personality trait characterized by high standards, rigid expectations, and specific ideas about how to achieve a desired outcome. Individuals with high rule consciousness tend to have strongly internalized the importance of rules and their standards which they utilize to judge and restrain behavior. They have high self-control, they display moral behavior, respect those in authority and see themselves as conscientious and persevering. Because rule consciousness and perfectionism have overlapping implicit features, this work seeks to address a vacuum in the present literature about personality characteristics of Indian seafarers by focusing specifically on perfectionism and rule consciousness. The study aims to study relationship between Perfectionism and Rule-consciousness among Indian Seafarers. To find the result sample of 315 male Indian seafarers between the age of 20 and 65 years were administered the Cattell’s 16 personality factor scale and the scores were compared. In this study it was discovered, there is a link between perfectionism and rule-following consciousness. However according to ranks, there was no discernible difference was found in levels of rule consciousness, whereas considerable variations were found in levels of perfectionism across ranks.
