Author(s): Debabrata Samanta and Dr. Manamohan Rout
Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to compare the Anxiety and Self Confidence between athletes, football and kho-kho players. For the present study total 450 male players (150 from each athletes, football and kho-kho) of Inter College State Competition belonging from various colleges in West Bengal were selected. The age of the subject was ranged between 18-25 years. For the present study selected psychological variables (Anxiety and Self Confidence) were selected as the measuring criteria. To find out the difference between athletes, football and kho-kho players in relation to their Anxiety and Self Confidence the ANOVA test was applied as the statistical treatment. Post Hoc test of Scheffer’s is followed to decide significant differentiation between paired means wherever ‘f’ ratio is important. Significant difference was found between athletes, football and kho-kho players in relation to their Anxiety and Self Confidence where the calculated mean of Anxiety significantly differs in between Athletes and Football players (MD = 2.67), Football and Kho –Kho players (MD = 4.05) as well as Athletes and Kho-Kho players (MD=6.72) because the mean difference values are higher than the value of critical difference 2.41 at confidence level of 0.05. Since the mean of self-confidence significantly differs in between Athletes and Football players (MD = 3.20), Athletes and Kho-Kho players (MD=3.12) since the result of the differential mean values are higher than the crucial differential value of 1.82 at 0.05 significance. The mean differential value of Football and Kho –Kho players (MD = 0.08) is less than the critical difference value of 1.8. from the findings of the study it is concluded that the athletes show high anxiety level followed by football and kho-kho players. Level of self-confidence is higher in athletes than football and kho-kho players.
