This study compares the personality characteristics of athletes in individual and team sports. 197 athletes (105 individual, 92 team, 131 males, and 66 females) completed the SPQ-20 Sport Personality Questionnaire. This questionnaire is composed of four sub- scales of 20 personality traits. The data were collected by Sport Personality Questionnaire 20 (SPQ-20) and the statistic analysis was performed with SPSS software. In order to describe the data, The description used to compare the average is the t-test. The results revealed that individual sport athletes scored significantly higher only on flow than team sport athletes. The team sport athletes scored significantly higher on conscientiousness, self-awareness, and ethics than what the individual sport athletes did. No significant difference was found between two groups on achievement, adaptability, competitiveness, visualization, intuition, goal setting, pressure management, self-efficacy, failure fear control, stress management, emotions, self-talk, empathy, relationships, aggressiveness, and impression management.
