LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
Values and attitudes are the guiding force of one's behavior. His preferences and priorities are based on his attitudinal leaning which originate from the values prevailing in his close environment. Sport by its nature is a social activity in which large number of people are involved and interact for the shared purpose. Human beings learn to be social beings, because an individual affiliates and reaffiliates with different sports groups, resulting in the change of value system. These observations prompted the author to investigate the values of Indian male athletes. The sample of the study comprised 809 male athletes drawn from 14 different sports disciplines, undergoing regular diploma course at SAI NS NIS Patiala & Gandhinagar. The age of the subjects ranged between 18-30 years and Modernization Scale by Singh et al (1987) standardized on Indian population was administered to collect the data. The results revealed that inter game differences existed in marriage, educational and global values.
