From the large sample of subjects selected for PhD, 120 Ss were pooled out on the basis of predetermined criteria of gender and success orientation. Gender and success orientation were treated as an independent variables, each varied at two levels. Aggression was dependent variable. A 2x2 factorial design was use d and three hypotheses were tested in the study. Male sportsperson exhibit significantly more aggressive behavior than female sportsperson. The sportspersons having individual success orientation are significantly more aggressive than those having group su ccess orientation. The interactional hypothesis reads as, male sportsperson having individual success orientation are significantly more aggressive than female sportspersons having group success orientation. First the data were treated by descriptive stati stical techniques mean and standard deviation. .finally, two way analysis of variance was applied. Findings of the study revealed that male sportsperson were significantly more aggressive than female sportspersons. Strong association was found between indi vidual success orientation and aggression. Results fail to support interactional hypothesis. It seems with regards to aggression, gender and success orientation functioned independently.
