A Study on Women Athletes: The Relationship Between Cognitive Distortions and Physical Self-Perception

Beyza Nur KILIC, Hudayar CIHAN.

Abstract
Sports, by its nature, can provide an environment where athletes can be exposed to stressors related to sports and sports environments. In stressful situations, athletes may develop a bias in their perception of some processes. These biases are stated as cognitive distortions in the literature. This study aims to examine whether cognitive distortions predict physical self-perception among women athletes or not. The fact that the variables that may affect performance in sports are not studied much under the science of psychology makes this study more critical. The sample of the study consists of 102 women athletes between the ages of 18-26. The data has been collected only online from women athletes. A snowball sampling method was used. Before data was collected about the study's purpose and conditions, an informed consent form was given to the women athletes online. In this study, women athletes were given a demographic information form, the Cognitive Distortions Scale, and the Physical Self Perception Scale. The data obtained from the structural equation model showed that cognitive distortions predicted the physical self-perception in women athletes, and cognitive distortions explained 25% of the variance in physical self-perception (p <.001).

Key words: cognition, self-perception, sports, athletes, women
