Abstract

This research seeks to examine the differences in big five personality traits and life satisfaction between male and female ice hockey players in GBC. A cross-sectional design was employed for the study. A total N = 211 ice hockey players (out of which 114 were male and 97 were female players) were included. The participants included were having an age range of 18 – 25 years (M = 19.84, SD = 2.12). BFI and SWLS questionnaires along with demographics were utilized to assess personality traits and life satisfaction. Statistical analysis included t-test to compare gender differences. The analysis indicated that male players reported higher life satisfaction scores and scored higher on extraversion and agreeableness. Female players surprisingly exhibited higher conscientiousness and neuroticism levels. Openness did not show significant gender differences. Through reliable strategies, ice-hockey teams might be able to create a supportive environment that acknowledges gender differences in personality traits.
