Abstract [en]
ABSTRACT Research has suggested that personality can influence the perception of individuals’ social support. The purpose of the study was to investigate if perception of social support is influenced by interpersonal trust and dispositional optimism orientations. Participants were 78 high-level budo athletes with a mean age of 26.6 years (SD=5.6). All participants completed the Social Support Survey, the Generalised Trust subscale of the Trust Inventory, and the Life Orientation Test. The results indicated that high optimists were more satisfied with listening support and emotional challenge, whereas high trusting athletes perceived emotional comfort as more important. Moreover, athletes with a combination of low optimism and high trust perceived it more difficult to increase maternal assistance. The findings indicate that the personality constructs investigated might supply with different functions on the athletes perception of social support. The idea that social support is multidimensional and that individuals with the same quantity of social support can perceive qualitatively different was supported.
