athletic motivation inventory

Quick Reference


An inventory designed to measure personality traits thought to be related to athletic ability. These traits include aggression, coachability, conscience development, determination, drive, emotional control, leadership, mental toughness, responsibility, self-confidence, and trust. Although the inventory is much used, its ability to predict athletic success has been seriously questioned.
