The present study aims to examine personalities of visually impaired elite athletes and reveal the effect of sports on personality. The study sample covers 168 visually impaired elite level athletes, 51 of whom were female and 117 of whom were male. The age range of these athletes was 15-25 years. All visually impaired athletes who participated in the study are competitors in B1 level national teams. The "Big Five Scale" developed John and al., (1991), which was adapted to Turkish by Gencoz and Oncul (2003), was used in the study as the data gathering instrument. The data obtained in the research was transferred into SPSS 22.0 program. Significant differences were found between age groups and personalities of visually impaired athletes in terms of their convergence-peacefulness and personality scale and between score averages of subdimensions in term of sports branch variables.
