I am an intelligent and independent man whose doesn't need any help.

Or

I am an intelligent and independent man who doesn't need any help.

If both is correct, then what is the difference between them.

Feel free to correct my any sentences. Thank you! :)

    The pronoun is subject of the relative clause, and thus it should be nominative "who". – BillJ Mar 29 '20 at 10:16

    Whose would need to refer to something belonging to the man. – Kate Bunting Mar 29 '20 at 10:48

"whose" is the possessive form of "who":

  • "I" --> "my"
  • "he" --> "his"
  • "who" --> "whose"

Therefore, it generally needs a noun to be possessed:

Whose ball is this?
I am a man whose arms are strong.

"Who" is the nominative (subject) form, so it should be used anywhere you need a subject for a sentence or a clause:

I am an intelligent and independent man. I don't need any help.
I am an intelligent and independent man who doesn't need any help.
