Sport personality assessment: facts, fallacies, and perspectives
The status of sport personality literature is reviewed in light of three key questions: Is there a sport type? Does personality relate to success? Does sport participation influence the athelete's personality? Critical assessment of the literature provides rather definite answers to these questions. Some theoretical underpinnings of personality theory are discussed which lead one to conclude that the trait approach is inadequate. New approaches are described that would allow personality to be assessed in light of reasonable theoretical premises. It is likely that the atomistic view of personality will have to be dropped. There is little doubt that a new stance is needed in assessing sport personality.
