Abstract

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the relationship between wrestlers' motivation and narcissism level by determining their narcissism and motivation tendencies. Narciccism personality scale and motivation tendency scale are used for gathering data in this study. . In the analysis of the data, SPSS 15 program was used. “Kolmogorov-Smirnov” and ''Anova-Homogenety of variances” tests were applied in order to determine if the data are normally distributed. The tests results indicated that the data are normally distributed and homogeny. Descriptive statistic test for analysing the data and Pearson correlation and regression tests for examining the relationship between narcissism and motivation tendencies of wrestlers are used in the study. At the end, while the findings show that wrestler's motivation tendency is of a fine one, findings also showed that there is a negative correlation between narcissism and abstaining from success.
