The current study aims to explore both personal and team-related sports behavior dimensions of Turkish children soccer players. It has been argued that several personal dispositions such as achievement motivation, fear of failure, and aggression levels (Wann, Haynes, McLean, and Pullen, 2003) could be at play when the child is trying to achieve in a sports context. Among related outcomes of these personal dispositions, sports performance, teamwork (Martin, Carron, Eys, and Loughead, 2012), fairplay and sportsmanship behaviors (Arthur-Banning, Wells, Baker, and Hegreness, 2009) have been widely researched and discussed in the literat . . .ure. The current study will try to explore the relationships between these dimensions from a personal disposition perspective using an observational method. The sample consisted of 79 selected male soccer players. A total of 6 teams were observed during soccer play competition games. The results revealed interesting findings regarding the relationships between several personal and team-related behavior dimensions Daha fazlası Daha az

The aim of this study is to investigate the relation between the digit length ratio and aggression in 377 individuals aged between 18-24 years. A digital compass was used for anthropometric measurements using standard methods. The State-Trait Anger Scale (STAS) and Aggression Questionnaire (AQ) were used to evaluate the aggression and anger in participants. All individuals were evaluated by SCL-90-R with respect to general psychopathology. Independent samples test, Pearson Correlation Analysis and Multiple Regression Analysis were used for statistical analyses. 2D:4D ratio was found to be lower for males than females. There was a po . . .sitive correlation between 2D:4D ratio and physical aggression in males, but not in females. The relation between 2D:4D ratio and physical aggression was observed to be weaker when possible psychopathology, which can be detected with SCL-90-R test, was excluded. The results suggest that 2D:4D digit ratio may be used as a method to assess the degree of aggression. However, the digit ratio may not be an ideal biological marker reflecting the brain development. © Universitätsverlag Ulm GmbH 2008 Daha fazlası Daha az
