Top, Elif; Akil, Mustafa
World Journal of Education, v8 n3 p56-64 2018
The present study investigated the correlation between the personality traits of the university students who were engaged in sports and the ones who were not engaged in sports, and their domains of creativity. A total number of 593 students studying in the faculty of sports sciences and in other departments were included the study. As the data collection tools, "Revised/Shortened Form Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ-RS)" and "Kaufman Domains of Creativity Scale" (K-DOCS) were used in the present study. When the creativity and personality traits of the female and male students were compared, it was found out that the neuroticism points of female students were found to be higher comparing to the male students. While the male students had higher points in in the domains of scholarly creativity, mechanical/scientific creativity, artistic and psychoticism, the female students were found to have scored higher points in the other domains. When the creativity and personality traits of the students who were engaged in sports and those of the students who were not engaged in sports were compared, the extroverted characteristics were found higher and psychoticism characteristics were lower of the individuals engaged in sports, while no difference was found in other domains. Consequently, it could be said that female students were more neurotic, that the individuals engaged in sports were more extroverted compared to the ones not engaged in sports, and that male students have higher points compared to the female students in the domains of scholarly, mechanical/scientific, artistic and psychoticism.
