Sports behavior is observable and universal in all socioeconomic classes at the global level irrespective of the nationalities. But the types of game opted and their performance in those opted games are influenced by one’s socioeconomic status. Socially disadvantaged and deprived sportsmen present inadequate personality pattern which is undesirable for a sport especially in this era where the sport is highly competitive and simply winning is considered more than all. In the wake of this, it can be said that the players hailing from higher socioeconomic status tend to participate in different games from that of lower socioeconomic status. Subsequently performance level and achievement motives are also affected due to consequential differences in their mental Makeup and personality traits. Therefore, it is recognized that the socio-economic factor is a potent factor in shaping sport personality in particular and total personality development of a person in general.
