Author(s): Dr. Sonia Kapur and Saharsh Shah
The relationship between need for power (NOP) and psychosomatic symptoms (PSS) among wrestlers was investigated in this study. Sample size of the subjects for this study was 100 (n=50 male, n=50 female) of age group 20-45 years, selected randomly from various colleges of Punjab. To measure the Need for Power, Power Motive Inventory (Hardeo Ojha and Brajbala Shah) was used and to evaluate the Psychosomatic Symptoms, Psychosomatic Symptoms Scale (Sandhu and Singh, 1993) was used. Results of the study indicated that male wrestlers with high Need for Power had significant negative relationship with Psychosomatic Symptoms whereas in female wrestlers Need for Power showed no significant relationship with Psychosomatic Symptoms but there was a significant inter-relationship among different variables on Psychosomatic Symptoms scale. Gender difference in the study showed that males were higher (mean=81.10) on Need for Power as compared to the females (mean=31.92) which coincided with our hypotheses and females (mean=13.473) are higher on Psychosomatic Symptoms as compared to the males (mean=6.311).
