Dr. Rajesh BooraAbstract:
The present study was an attempt to investigate the significant mean difference and correlation between neuroticism & sports achievement of cricket players which are participating at District, State, Inter-university and National level. The sample of the study comprised 300 cricket players of Haryana state. All the players are male participants and their age ranges from 17 to 23 years. Neuroticism of cricket players was incorporated by NEO Five Factor Inventory (FFI): Costa and McCrae, 1995. In order to test the significance of mean difference between the variables descriptive statistics, one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was applied and for comparison between possible pairs of different achievement groups, Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied. The correlations among variables were obtained by using Pearson’s product movement method of correlation. The result indicates that the correlation between personality trait neuroticism and different achievement levels of cricket players were found to be significant. Personality dimension neuroticism showed negative correlation with different achievement levels of cricket players. The cricket players of different achievement groups differ significantly on neuroticism. It means, players participating at lower level are more anxious and worried during competitions as compared to those playing at higher level.Pages: 179-182 | 875 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
