High school students' participation in sporting activity and their personality variables: An analysisAuthor(s):
The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between the participation of male and female high school students in sporting activity and personality variables. The research hypotheses assumed that the level of participation in sporting activity of students would be related to differential levels of self-efficacy, self control and attribution style as well as to gender. The research findings indicate significant differences between the three research groups on the research variables. The students in the competitive sport group attained higher levels of self efficacy, self-control and attribution style than students in the two other groups. No significant gender differences were found in the study with male and female students in each of the research groups reporting similar levels of self-efficacy, self-control and attribution style. The results of this study indicate that male and female students who participate in competitive sport are characterized by more positive personality characteristics than students who are not involved in that level of sporting activity.Pages: 16-18 | 632 Views 41 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
