The aim of this research was to determine the anger expression styles between the sportive hearing impaired individuals and the sedentary hearing impaired individuals. In the sportive hearing impaired group, there were 170 participants: 62 females and 108 males doing basketball, volleyball and football teams as licensed sportsmen in various clubs and 162 participants: 59 females and 103 males of sedentary individuals. In data collection a personal information form developed for socio-demographical characteristics and "Continuous Anger and Anger Expression Style Scale" developed for determining changes in the anger expression styles by Spielberger et al. and adapted into Turkish by Özer were used. After the normality and variance homogeneity of data from the questionnaires were tested, in the determination of statistical differences t-test, One Way Anova and inter-group differences Tukey test were performed and the significance level was regarded to be P<0.05. A significant difference was observed in the continuous anger expression styles between the hearing impaired ones doing sport and not doing sport (P<0.05), statistically significant differences were determined in the anger expression style sub-dimensions between the sportive and sedentary hearing impaired ones (P<0.05). When the changes between the groups were examined, any significant difference was not found depending on the factors like educational backgrounds, age, marital status and gender. When compared to the sedentary hearing impaired individuals, the sportive hearing impaired individuals' continuous anger levels were low; their anger control levels were high. Again, their external anger and internal anger levels were high. This study showed that the anger expression style values were more positive in the sportive hearing impaired individuals rather than the sedentary hearing impaired individuals; whatever disability type and situation all disabled individuals must be guided to sportive activities and their life quality and anger tendencies would be taken under control.
