Motives for participating in sport and personality traits in handball players. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna undersökning riktades mot att studera motivation hos elit- och motions handbollsspelare, vad som kännetecknar motivationen hos respektive grupp. Vidare var syftet med studien att undersöka  personliga egenskaper och motiv till idrottsdeltagande samt studera eventuella samband mellan personlighets egenskaper och motiv till idrottsdeltagande mellan grupperna. Urvalet bestod av elit- (n= 47) samt motionärs (n= 54) handbollsspelare. Totala antal deltagare uppstod till 101 stycken spelare. Deltagarna var av både manligt och kvinnligt kön fördelade på ett herrlag samt sex damlag, där tre lag spelar i handbollens högsta serie (elitserien) och fyra lag i lägre divisioner (division tre och fyra). Instrumentet som användes var ett frågebatteri med tre olika delar (1) bakgrund och demografiska fakta, (2) NEO-FFI samt (3) Participation Motivation Questionnaire (PMQ). Egenskapsdimensionerna extraversion och trevlighet/ vänlighet samt motiven hälsa och form, miljöfaktorer och socialt erkännande visade signifikanta skillnader. Elitspelarna uppvisade högre värden i extraversion, trevlighet/ vänlighet och laganda, medan motionärerna rapporterade högre värden i neuroticism och samvetsgrannhet. Resultatets kan främst tillämpas av tränare, då kunskap kring varför individer spelar handboll samt förståelse angående personlighets drag kan öka förståelsen kring spelarnas träning. Intressanta framtida studier är att undersöka ledares påverkan på spelarna utifrån individernas personlighets drag och motiv till idrottsdeltagande.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine motivation of elite and exercise handballplayers and what characterizes the motivation of each group. The study aimed to examine personal traits and motives for sport participation and study possible interactions between these two factors among players at elite and exercise level. The study consisted elite (n = 47) and exercise (n = 54) handballplayers. Total number of participants was 101 players. Participants were both males and females divided into one men's and six women's team. Three teams playing in the highest division and four teams in lower divisions. The instrument used was a battery of questions with three different parts (1) background and demographic data, (2) NEO-FFI, and (3) Participation Motivation Questionnaire (PMQ). The personality traits extraversion and agreeableness and the motives fitness, environmental and social recognition showed significant differences. Elite players showed higher levels of extraversion, agreeableness and teamspirit, while exercise players were higher in neuroticism and conscientiousness. The result can be applied by coaches, because knowledge about why people play handball and understanding regarding personality traits can enhance the understanding about players physical activity. Interesting future studies is to study coaches effects on players based on their motives for participating in sport and personality traits.
