Management of Sports Multi Dimensional Perfectionism through Teachersĺ training Programme in Physical Education

Abstract

Objective: Perfectionism is traditionally viewed as an enduring personality trait (Hewitt & Flett, 1991). Theorists concur that the setting of high performance standards is a central feature of the construct. These standards can be evaluated according to intrapersonal and interpersonal-criteria. In the present study, we put an attempt to the management of sports perfectionism of the prospective teachers├ó┬Ç┬č in physical education. Method: This was longitudinal in nature, carried out quasi experimental research design. 83 B. P.Ed students were chosen as a subject. Sports Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (Sport MPS) - Dunn, Causgrove Dunn & Syrotuik, 2002 was administered on the subject in three different phases during the academic season 2009- 2010. Result : It is observed that the means of the 1st Factor, 2nd Factor, 3rd Factor and 4th Factor of Sports Perfectionism scores of the B.P.Ed. students decreased significantly as the course advanced towards the completion. Conclusion: Perfectionism is a personality trait and the change in personality trait is very difficult. Hence, we may conclude that the B.P.Ed. course had a positive impact on management of sports perfectionism
