A study of relationship of personality variables and psychological factors with athletic performance
Author(s): Dr. Tarsem Singh
There has been an increasing amount of attention in the study of relationship of personality variables and psychological factors with athletic performance. Most of the work has been concerned with delineating personality traits of athletes, differentiating among individuals by sports and level of success etc. Studies of measurement of personality provide information needed by Sports Psychologists and Coaches, who are charged with the responsibility for selection, counselling and training of the athletes for competition. It is assumed that the physical abilities of an individual are related to his personality structure, because the environment in which physical abilities are displayed (i.e., in games and sports) constitutes an ideal setting for the development of desirable personality characteristics such as sociability, emotional stability, confidence, cooperativeness, personal adjustment and extraversion, which are very essential for increasing the athletic ability of the players.
