    Abstract

    This original empirical study examined the relationship between personality characteristics and the level of physical aggression. Participants from introductory level college courses completed a survey with a modified physical aggression scale and extraversion and introversion measurement scales. However, in this particular study we discovered that our predictions were reversed. There was no statistical significance, p=0.213. The extroverted individuals had lower physical aggression scores, opposite of the hypothesis. Overall, this study has opened another door in the realm of sport psychology, can you predict an athlete’s performance based off of their personality?
