Author(s): Pampa Barik and Dr. Rajarshi Kar
The aim of the study was to compare personality traits among different categories of sports. Data was collected from eighty participants where twenty participants from each group (Invasion games, Target games, Net/Wall games, Striking/Fielding games) were randomly selected. Sports specific personality test by Agya Jit Singh and H.S Cheema was used to asses seven dimensions of Sports Specific Personality Traits such as Sociability, Dominance, Extroversion, Conventionality, Self-Concept, Mental Toughness and Emotional Stability. One Way ANOVA found no significant difference in Sociability, Dominance, Extroversion, Self Concept and Emotional Stability but significant difference was found in Conventionality and Mental Toughness. LSD Post Hoc test revealed that Conventionality in Invasion Games was significantly lower than both Target games (p=.000) and Striking/Fielding games (p=.012). Mental toughness of Striking/ Fielding Games was significantly higher than Net/Wall games (p=.004).
