For the purpose of determining the differences in basic personality dimensions between female players of different team situational efficiency, 151 young female volleyball players, aged averagely 13.89±1.17years, filled out the Eysenck junior personality questionnaire (EPQ-J), designed by Eysenck & Eysenck (1975, 1994). It was established that the relation between the measured personality dimensions was not completely orthogonal because there was significant correlation between the dimensions of psychoticism and introversion-extraversion. Statistically significant differences were found by One-way ANOVA between the groups of players of different team situational efficiency in dimensions of neuroticism (F=8.57, p=0.00) and introversion-extraversion (F=3.70, p=0.03). This finding was also confirmed by multivariate discriminant analysis (Rc=0.40, p=0.00). A group of players with the highest team efficiency is characterized by the lowest degree of the neuroticism dimension, and a group of players with moderate team efficiency is characterized by the lowest degree of the introversion-extraversion dimension. The obtained results partially confirm the findings in literature about the influence of personality dimensions on efficiency in sports competitions.
