 The investigation and comparison of personality traits of female professional‒ and non-athletes with the Eysenck Personality HJEPQ-, HEIVEQ questionnaire from the aspect of the results.

 

In our research we have investigated the impact of professional sport in the light of comparing qualified female athletes and non-athletes.

Based on the comparing statistical calculations of the two group results, the differences were significant in case of all 7 items. In the case of psychoticism, extroversion and empathy the difference was strongly significant, whereas the results of neuroticism, social conformity, risk taking and impulsivity are significant. In the light of the average results we can conclude that in the case of professional athletes we can observe a shift towards a personality which is more egoistic, more aggressive, more risk-taking, more impulsive, more extroverted, less neurotic, less empathic and more rebellious against social expectations. During the investigation of different sports clearly we could observe some fine differences in the personality profiles.

In our sample we compared individual, team sportsmen and members of the control group who did not do any sports. In the light of the results it is evident that except for neuroticism there are significant differences in the case of 6 items between the three groups.

When we compare team sportsmen with non-athletes the difference is strongly significant in the case of psychoticism, extroversion, empathy and the results of neuroticism, impulsivity, risk-taking also show a significant difference.

Investigating the impact of dance on personality with particular emphasis on anxiety.

 Based on the results of the personality questionnaires, we can conclude that folk dancers show a more open, risk-taking impulsive personality with a lower level of empathy. For male dancers, a more dominant, rebellious, less empathetic, but a more stable, less neurotic personality is outlined. Ballroom dancing ladies have a lower propensity for anxiety.

The dancers are better able to cope with situations that unleash stability of their personality, as well as their ability to resist, maneuver, and cope with awkward situations

Presentation of research topic

My research topic is the study of sports habits among high school students. The aim of our research is to examine and compare the sporting habits of high school and vocational school students with respect to different background variables (family, financial background, education). With my supervisor, Dr. Klára Kovács-Nagy, we would like to get a comprehensive picture of what sports habits determine the behavior of students of this age. The research is not yet in the stage of publishing our results, but we are conducting various background research, for example, examining the results of the OKM, from the analysis of which we will plan to publish publications. With my research colleagues: Dr. Klára Kovács-Nagy, Marianna Moravecz, Zsuzsa Nagy, Dávid Rábai have published two joint publications: Investigation of institutional impact and models in central and eastern european higher education institutions and institutional impact in the carpathian basin higher education institutional in competitive sports. Our research is supperted by University Of Nyíregyháza and University of Debrecen.

Title of the research:

Investigation of the role of everyday physical education in the health behaviour of students of Debrecen and Nyíregyháza.

5. Description and results of research (in detail, max. 1500 characters)

Presentation of the research: In September 2016, young people who were already involved in everyday physical education entered the colleges and universities. CCIV of 2011 on National Higher Education law obliges higher education institutions to improve the health of students, primarily by ensuring the conditions for regular physical activity. Nonetheless, physical activity is not an integral part of their daily routine in the lives of students enrolled in higher education. In our research we investigate the implementation of everyday physical education introduced in Hungary (as unique in Europe), but not by analysing the specific place of realization in public education, but by studying the living space of young people moving from there, opinions of non-participating students. The target group of the research is the population of students of the two major higher education centres of the Northern Great Plain Region, the University of Debrecen and the University of Nyíregyháza (who participated in daily physical education, graduated after 2015), and the older (non-everyday physical education) students. Our research is unique as we do not have relevant research results in this age group either in Hungary or in Europe.

Aim of the research: Our results provide an insight into the positive values of physical activity (teacher or peer roles, experience-centred, institutional infrastructure…) that can be highlighted in everyday physical education practice and can help students in their own health development.

Targets:

Nowadays, it has become a central issue in the education systems of the developed countries to identify what knowledge needs to be acquired in the schools of the 21st century and which competencies need to be developed. To do this, it is important to examine where and how education is communicated by education performers. This way, it means engagement, learning about pedagogical views, and changing views can be explored by students and practicing instructors. Researches have shown that the process of becoming a teacher usually occurs before entering the teacher training system. Previous experiences, observations, and opinions about teachers are the ones that mostly influence the process. In the instruction of teachers and methodological education, very few students will be receptive to the new, unknown pedagogical methodological cultures. The natural values ​​will dominate more for them.

A systematic, sustainable examination and promotion of dual careers among athletes is a well-known theme in national sports strategies and across Europe. The research team would like to examine the opportunities presented by different sports and compare them with international expectations and models.

I would like to do source researches, and it is our priority to train young explorers and provide them with opportunities for professional discussion. Its manifestations go beyond institutional (CSS, Science Day) frameworks (NCSS; Conference; Young Sports Scientists, Conference of Hungarian Society for Sport Sciences).
