ABSTRACT

The present study investigated the interpersonal values of athletic and non – athletic students of university of Chittagong. To accomplish this purpose, a total of 80 students (20 athletic male, 20 athletic female, 20 non – athletic male, and 20 non – athletic female) were selected purposively as the sample of the study. The Bangla version of interpersonal values scale was used to collect data. Results showed that values regarding support, recognition, and benevolence varied significantly as a function of gender. Male was found to be more benevolent but less supportive and recognizable than female. Athletic and non – athletic students differ significantly in conformity and benevolence. Athletic students obtained higher scores both on conformity and benevolence than non – athletic students.
