The purpose of this paper is to report the findings of a literature review summary on the topic
of the relationship of human psychological characteristics with athletic performance. Two research
questions guided its development: (1) Is there any evidence that there is a relationship between
individual human psychological characteristics and athletic performance? (2) If there is any evidence
that there is a relationship between individual human psychological characteristics and athletic
performance, is there further evidence that those individual characteristics translate in some way into
group dynamics or attributes that may similarly influence team performance?
