Mental Toughness One question often arises when discussing sport psychology: do elite athletes have higher “mental characteristics” than average people? Mental toughness is a growing concept in sport psychology that tends to answer such a question.

Therefore, there is a need to look for long-term effects of personality on sport performance (Aidman and Schofield, 2004), and this is best achieved through the use of longitudinal methodology, rather than a cross-sectional approach. Subsequently, researchers can decide to consider PTLID either in a prospective or “posthoc” fashion when they design their experiments. What we call the prospective way corresponds to the selection of a sample based on PTLID values, for example, according to their high or low score on a trait.
