Author(s): Shajad Ali and Dr. Sudhir Rajpal
The present study assessed the impact of neuroticism dimension of personality on mental toughness of intercollegiate male ballgame players. 50 intercollegiate male players with average age of 21.91 years were selected purposively for the present study. Players who took part in intercollegiate competition in sports such as cricket, volleyball, soccer and basketball were selected. The players were selected mainly from colleges operational in Bilaspur Chhattisgarh. Tiwari's Mental Toughness Questionnaire standardized in 2007 was adopted to assess mental toughness of selected intercollegiate male ballgame players while Hindi version of PEN inventory standardized by Menon et al. (1978) was used to assess neuroticism among intercollegiate male ballgame players. To analyse the correlated variables more closely, One Way ANOVA was worked out with neuroticism being categorized into three categories namely high neurotic, low neurotic and average neurotic. The categorization of neuroticism was achieved by statistical method Q1 and Q3. In this method scores were classified on the basis of 25th and 75th percentile. Results reveal that mental toughness in low neurotic male ballgame players was significantly higher as compared to high and average neurotic male ballgame players. It was concluded that emotional stability in intercollegiate male ballgame players affect their mental toughness.
