This personality trait would affect sporting performance if the performer was performing in a team game, the lack of confidence may put them off their game or they may not even get involved. Extroverts on the other hand tend to be confident and are most often found within team games, this trait can also lead to hot headedness and therefore deteriorate their performance in sport as they are no longer concentrated on the task at hand. This can also be said when they have to partake in a sport that involves small muscle movements (as extroverts tend to sway towards the use of large muscle movements) if they’re unable to perform the task at hand they may become aggressive and thus their performance will decrease. One further trait Eysenck indentified was a stable performer; a stable performer tends to be more laid back and has an even temper. In a performance situation this could lead to either laziness or complacency, with their mind wandering off task.

The psychological effects of sports injuries all depend on how the athlete copes with the injury. Epidemiological reports of sports injury confirm a high incidence of injuries occurring at all levels of sport participation, ranging in severity from cuts and bruises to spinal cord injury. The psychosocial dynamics accompanying sport injury should be known to ensure psychological recovery, an important aspect in rehabilitating the injured athlete. Earlier studies demonstrating psychological differences between athletes and non-athletes indicated the need for actual research on the athlete's post injury response in lieu of accepting the hypothesis that the emotional responses of athletes to injury parallels
The good stress is the kind that will help keep you motivated to be productive and be able to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. A person’s stress level can range from low to high. When the stress level is low the stress hormones produced will trigger stressors for boredom and depression while high-level stress triggers stressors for anxiety or excitement. Since the body reacts by producing stress hormones that will help take proper action, if you are experiencing more than one type of stressor you can use one to prevent yourself from experiencing or dealing with the other one.

Some athletes are motivated to participate because they want to succeed, but others are motivated to avoid participating in order to avoid failure. According to McClelland et al. (1953), athletes with high motivation to achieve are more likely to show high levels of performance, persist longer, and value feedback from coaches, as well as attributing failure to internal (dispositional) factors such as effort. On the other hand, athletes with a high motive to avoid failure will tend to avoid tasks that involve evaluation or the risk to fail, and they tend to attribute failure to external (situational) factors such as luck. The need achievement theory is important in understanding athletes because it deals with how dispositional factors and situational factors
