Abstract or Summary
  • The purposes of the study were twofold: (1) to compare selected personality traits of male and female interscholastic and intercollegiate athletic coaches with standardized norms for personality traits established for all men and women, and (2) to compare personality traits of interscholastic male and female athletic coaches with the personality traits of male and female intercollegiate athletic coaches. Subjects in the study were 239 male and female athletic coaches from Oregon and California with two years or more athletic coaching experience. The athletic coaches were placed in four groups: (1) male interscholastic athletic coaches, (2) male intercollegiate athletic coaches, (3) female interscholastic athletic coaches and (4) female intercollegiate athletic coaches. Areas of influence concerning the experience of each of the four groups was considered: (1) 2-10 years and (2) 11 years or more. Each subject completed two instruments: (1) a personal inventory, and (2) the Jackson Personality Research Form. A multiple group discriminant analysis procedure was employed by using a set of linear classification functions computed by choosing the independent variables in a stepwise manner and by applying a t-ratio of significant differences from the general norms of the Jackson Personality Research Form. Of the eight proposed null hypotheses, all but one were rejected by the results obtained. The results indicated that athletic coaches display personality traits different from the general norms of the population. The results indicate that additional research is needed on athletic coaches' personality traits in the following areas: (1) traits which affect the athletic coach as an influencing personality on the behavior of the athlete. (2) traits which identify potential interscholastic and intercollegiate athletic coaches. (3) traits which are common to both male and female athletic coaches. (4) traits, if any, which are unique to athletic coaches in specific types of athletics such as individual or team events. (.5) traits, if any, that are culturally oriented which have influenced the personality of female athletic coaches. (6) traits, if any, which are affected by the experience of athletic coaches.
