A2 Sport Psychology - Social Facilitation

 

Related Exam Question

The crowd can affect elite performers either positively or negatively. At the 2008 Wimbledon Tennis Championships, the British player Andy Murray commented after winning one match:


‘You know, the crowd were awesome, they got behind me, I mean, more than they ever have before. I think to finish the set like that really got the crowd going. It shifted the momentum of the match hugely.’


Explain the concept of ‘social facilitation’ and how it can affect performance. Outline the possible strategies which the performer and coach may use to limit any negative effects that may occur.

Ashcombe PE's insight:

This is to be watched after part 1

 

Related exam question:


Different methods of assessment can be used to measure anxiety levels and also to identify potential elite performers.

Discuss the suggestion that personality questionnaires can be an effective predictor of performance.


Answer:

Named personality test – EPI, (Cattell) 16PF, SCAT, STA1, POMS, Achievement Motivation (Nach & Naf questionnaires).

NOT CSAI 2

Sub-max of 2 marks

Agree

Credulous approach.
Personality traits linked to specific types of sports / characteristics of elite performance,
eg calm under pressure / not aggressive / equiv.
Used as part of talent identification programmes.
Iceberg profile (Profile of mood states).
Linked into high levels of vigour.

Sub-max of 2 marks

Disagree

Sceptical approach.
No clear link between success / choice of sport and personality type.
Research often contradicts each other.
Personality can change due to situation.

Conclusion

Neither approach has proved conclusive / no clear evidence to make accurate predictions.

The focus of the question is ‘can personality predict success’ rather than evaluating the method of using self-report questionnaires.

Caitlin Drent's curator insight, January 29, 10:04 AM

This video is a good one that defines psychology, gives a great overview of sports psychology in general, and what we can do to improve our mental state when it comes to sports or training. It gives definitions of psychology terms relating to sports and what we can do to keep our mental state as positive as possible to keep our bodies strong and injury free.
