Author(s): Rahul Vashishtha, Rohit Saroha, Anik K. Vanaik and AK Uppal

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the elite male and female gymnasts with respect to five personality traits namely Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness, Conscientiousness, and Neuroticism. The subjects for the study were male (N= 18) and female (N=12) elite level gymnasts, whose ages ranged between 18 to 25 years. In order to collect data pertaining to male and female elite gymnasts, Big Five Inventory developed and standardised by Oliver P. John, was used. The test consisted of 44 brief personality descriptors to which the test-taker responded with degree of agreement or disagreement on a 5-point Likert scale. The analysis of data clearly revealed that elite male and female gymnasts do not differ in any of the personality traits namely Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness, Conscientiousness and Neuroticism.
