Amar Rajan, founder and director of m i n d c a r t e r, is a psychologist and a teacher based in Trivandrum, Kerala.

He was born and brought up in a village called Chempazhanthy in Trivandrum and completed his primary and secondary education at Sree Narayana Gurukulam High School (SNGHS) in the vernacular medium. Right from his school days, psychology had always piqued his curiosity. This led him to opt for a course that had psychology as a subject for his pre degree. Passion and fascination increased year after year. Amar decided to do his higher studies in the subject and later decided to take up psychology as a career.

The journey through the world of psychology has never seemed to come to an end for Amar. In fact every leaf turned in the past 15 years has surprised him with more to learn. He completed his graduation from Sree Narayana college, at chempazhanthy, and pursued an M.A in Applied Psychology at the Department of Psychology, from Kerala University in Kariavattom. Serious research interest lead him to enroll for an MPhil in Consulting Psychology, and later for PhD in the same University.

The trigger that prompted Amar to learn psychology was his passion to learn more about the science behind human behavior, why people behave the way they do? And how well one could predict behavior once general patterns of behavior were understood. While all fields of psychology were equally fascinating to him, his core interest was in educational and organizational psychology. Amar also does individual counseling that is basically not clinical in nature.

Amar first came to the lime light when he got the opportunity to introduce a personality analysis segment in a reality show named 'vanitaratnam' on Amrita TV. This reality show was aimed at mothers. He analyzed their personalities using a well-known projective test called Thematic Apperception Test (TAT).This was the first time in the history of Indian television that a personality analysis was used for a reality show. After the success of this program he was invited to conduct personality analysis on many other TV shows in various malayalam channels. A recent program that he did was with one the flagship programs of Mazhavil Manorama called ‘Veruthe Alla Bharaya’ Thus Amar has became a pioneer in using personality analysis on TV shows. This achievement was addressed in national news dailies such as The Hindu, and The New Indian Express at different times.
