Previous Research on the personality of different athletes (team sport and individual participants) and whether there is a correlation or a difference. : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I am doing an assignment on the personality of individuals who participate in two different sporting types (Individual athletes, and athletes who play in team sports). The sports that I have chosen are Boxing and Rugby.

Does anyone know of any previous research done on this topic and if so I need a detailled account of how he/she went about it.

I would also like to know if there has been any other research on personality and the athletes determination to succeed and ability. If so again I would like to no in great detail how the research went about this reasearch.

Please answer very soon.
