Abstract: The purpose of the study was to determine whether there were any significant differences in the temperament traits possessed by women who coached team sports and women who coached individual sports on the intercollegiate level. A second purpose of the study was to determine and compare the temperament traits of these women with regard to the perceptions of themselves as a person and as a coach. The subjects for this study were 53 women who coached the team sports of basketball and volleyball (N=36) and the individual sports of golf and tennis (N=17) on the intercollegiate level. The subjects coached teams which participated in the 1975-1976 A.I.A.W. Regional Tournaments. The final sample represented Division I and Division II colleges and universities in Regions 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 of the A.I.A.W. It was determined through the use of an Information Questionnaire that the women in this study had coached on the intercollegiate level for one year or more and had, throughout their professional coaching career, exclusively coached a team or an individual sport.
