Ünsal Tazegül

Abstract


The aim of this study is to determine the narcissism and positive thinking scores of the disabled athletes. The sample of the study was selected by a total of 40 physically disabled athletes from the branches of swimming, football, basketball and athletics who voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. In the study, Positive Thinking Scale, which was validated and trusted by Akın et al. in 2015, and Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI-16) which was validated and trusted by Salim ATAY in 2009, were used as data collection tool. For analyses of the data, Portable IBM SPSS Statistics v20 software package was used. Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test was applied in order to decide whether data has normal distribution and it is observed that data has not normal distribution. "ANOVA-Homogeneity of variance" was applied to test the homogeneity of variances and it is determined that data is homogenous. For analyses of the data, Descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation coefficient analysis were applied in the analysis of the data. As a result of the statistical analysis carried out, it was determined that there is a positive relationship between the scores of narcissism and the positive thinking skill of physically disabled athletes.
