Abstract
This study examined the relationships between multidimensional perfectionism and perceptions of social loafing in sport among a sample of 162 female and 54 male youth soccer players (M age = 15.25 years; SD = .63). Participants completed a measure of perfectionism in sport and two self-report measures of perceived social loafing in sport. Canonical correlation analysis revealed a profile of maladaptive perfectionism that was positively correlated (RC1 = .35) with athletes’ tendencies to (a) believe that teammates socially loafed, and (b) be more accepting/approving of social-loafing behaviours in training. A second canonical function revealed a profile of adaptive perfectionism that was positively correlated (RC2 = .30) with athletes’ tendencies to (a) believe that teammates socially loafed, and (b) be less accepting/approving of social-loafing behaviours in training. Results reinforce the need to consider personality as an important variable when examining factors that potentially influence social loafing in sport.
