Thus the aim of this study was to determine the comparative analysis of personality traits of jumpers. To obtain data, the investigators had selected Sixty (N=60), Male Inter-College and Inter-University Level Sprinters between the age group of 18-25 years (Mean SD: age 20.6832.02 years, height 5.744926.3 m, body mass 76.40014.3 kg) were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into three groups: Group-A: Sprinters (n1=60) Inter-College (n1a=30) and Inter-University (n1b=30). To determine the significant differences of motor fitness components between Inter-College and Inter- University Sprinters, unpaired t-test was employed for data analyses. To test the hypothesis, the level of significance was set at 0.05. To conclude, it is significant to mention in relation to Personality Traits that insignificant differences occurs between Inter-College and Inter-University Jumpers on the factors A, B, F, G, H, I, L, N, O, Q2, Q3 and Q4. However, the significant differences occur between Inter-College and Inter-University Jumpers on the factors C, E, M and Q1.
