This research was done with the aim of determining of the students’ trait anger and anger expression styles
participating in sportive recreational activities in Karamanoglu Mehmetbey University. Descriptive method, one
of the quantitative research methods, was adopted as the search model. Research group consisted of 258 male
athletes who participated in sportive recreational activities. “The State-Trait Anger Scale (STAS)” developed by
Spielberger and adapted into Turkish by Savasır and Sahin in 1997 and “Personal Information Form” which was
developed by researcher in order to determine personal characteristic of athletes, were used as data collection
tool. Unique sample Kolmogorov Smirnov Test was used in order to see whether measurements were proper for
normal dispersion. Kruskal-Wallis Test and Mann Whitney U test were used on analyzing and interpreting of
data since it was a unnormal dispersion and meaningfulness was determined as P<0,05. SPSS 21 (Statistical
package for social sciences) packet programme was used for evaluating data and finding calculated values. It can
be said that the trait anger point average of the athletes participated in the research with (Mean=20,64),
internalized anger point average (Mean=18,42), sub dimension of anger locution, and externalized anger point
average (Mean=18,04) was low but, their controlled anger point average was mid-level with (Ort.=19,38).
Meaningful difference was found in terms of personal characteristic on trait anger and anger types of
participants’ age, class which they study at, place where they live, parents occupation, parents education, Is your
free time enough? and How do you spend your free time? variables, whereas meaningful difference was not
found on active sports situation and sports type variables.
