 Förhållandet mellan målorientering, motivationsklimat och psykologiskvälbefinnande bland svenska bordtennisspelare. (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between dispositional goal orientation (task/ego), perceived motivational climate (mastery/performance) and psychological well-being (such as emotional affect and self-esteem) among elite and non-elite table tennis players. Participants were 85 table tennis players who practice and compete on different levels. The study was carried out quantitatively by assessing perceptions of success questionnaire, perceived motivational climate inventory, positive and negative affect in sport descriptor, and a self-esteem schedule. Results showed no significance difference in goal orientations, perceived motivational climate and psychological well-being between elite and non-elite participants. Further analysis however showed significant differences in motivational and psychological patterns that existed within these two groups. The results are discussed in relation to theoretical frameworks and previous research.



Abstract [sv]

Studiens övergripande syfte var att undersöka förhållandet mellan målorientering (uppgift/tävling), upplevd motivationsklimat (uppgift/tävlingsorienterat) och psykologisk välbefinnande (emotionell affekt och självkänsla) bland svenska bordtennisspelare. I studien deltog 85 svenska bordtennisspelare som tränar och tävlar på olika nivåer. Studien genomfördes kvantitativt och fyra instrument användes: upplevelse av success, upplevelse av motivationsklimat, positiv och negativ affekt och självkänsla. Resultaten visade inga signifikanta skillnader i målorientering, motivationsklimat och psykologiskt välbefinnade mellan grupperna elit och icke-elit. Ytterligare analyser visade signifikanta skillander i motivationella och psykologiska mönster (självkänsla) som förekom innanför grupperna. Resultaten diskuteras i samband med teoretiska referensram och tidigare forskning.
