Background: Most people generally have traits of polychronicity, state anger, trait anger and anger expression but it is not yet known how these traits relate to people who are in leadership positions. And in doing this study we try to understand its effects on those people in accordance with their leadership styles. Aim: To find the relationship of leadership styles with polychronicity and state trait anger expression among college students. Subject and Methods: The study was conducted among 150 college students of age between 17 - 24 in the Coimbatore district using purposive sampling method. Socio demographic data such as gender, age, domicile, and socioeconomic status were assessed through online mode with informed consent from the college students. Multitasking preference inventory, State trait anger expression and Shanahan leadership style questionnaire were used. Statistical Analysis: Frequency, median, mean, standard deviation, Kolmogorov Smirnov and Shapiro Wilk test and bivariate analysis using spearman rank order correlation. Results: Leadership style of autocratic is significantly positively correlated to polychronicity, state trait anger expression and participative leadership is significantly negatively correlated to state anger. Conclusions: Polychronicity and state trait anger expression has its own effect on leaders based on the leadership styles they follow and it could also be seen as either a boon or a bane considering their style which they choose to govern as a leader. This could be used for the selection of the leaders accordingly in relation to the position and style needed in a work setting.
