Abstract

The present study was undertaken to investigate differences between emotional intelligence, personality, and mental health among sportspersons and non-sportspersons by Shivani Nishad under the supervision of Dr. Monika Gwalani. Sample of the study 100 sportspersons(50) and non-sportspersons(50). The hypothesis of the study is that there is a statistically significant difference in the measure of emotional intelligence, personality, and mental health among sportspersons and non-sportspersons. Pethe and Hyde’s emotional intelligence test, Neo five-factor inventory, and Jagdish and Srivastava’s mental health inventory used for the study. In order to assess the statistically significant difference between sportspersons and non-sportspersons on the measure of emotional intelligence, personality, and mental health by ‘t’ test. There is a statistically significant difference in the sub-dimensions of measure of emotional intelligence which are- self-awareness, self-motivation, emotional stability, managing relations, and altruistic behavior. There is a statistically significant difference in the dimensions of the measure of personality which are- Extraversion, Openness, and Conscientiousness. There is also a statistically significant difference in the sub-dimension of the measure of mental health and they are- Positive Self-Evaluation, perception of reality, integration of personality, autonomy, group-oriented attitudes, and environmental-mastery. The implications of the outcome are that indulgence in physical activity makes a person physiologically fit and also psychologically and mentally fit. Physical activities are an easy, inexpensive, and appropriate strategy and approach that should be emphasized to increase mental health in adolescence. The results indicated that there is a higher level of emotional intelligence and mental health among the sportsperson than non-sportsperson also a statistically significant difference in dimensions of personality i.e. extraversion, openness, and conscientiousness.
