Author(s): Rahul Trivedi, Elroy Pinto

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the Aggression between Contact Game and Non-Contact Game players. For the purpose of this study a total of 80 subjects (N=80) were chosen out of which 40 were from Contact Game (n=40) and 40 were from Non-Contact Game (n=40). The subjects were chosen using Quota sampling technique. Aggression was measured using Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BAQ) (1992) which consisted of twenty nine questions measuring four attributes namely physical aggression, verbal aggression, hostility, and anger. Independent sample‘t’ test was used to compare the Aggression between Contact Game and Non-Contact Game players. The results showed that there is a significant difference in Aggression between Contact Game and Non-Contact Game players wherein Contact game players possessed a higher level of Aggression than Non-Contact Game players. The higher level of Aggression can be attributed to the high amount of contact that occurs in contact games.
