Psychological profiles of elite performers

Different sports place different demands on athletes, which in turn may reflect considerably different factors underlying successful performance in a particular sport. To provide targeted interventions and build up necessary skills, the identification of psychological determinants constitutes the essential first step.

Using the Performance Profiling methodology, the aim of this long-term project is to interview thousands of athletes from different sports on (psychological) qualities an elite performer in their sport must posses. This should result in the identification of psychological profiles for a wide range of different sports.
