AbstractOne of the symptoms of the health of the soul is to know ourselves as we are and since the body's overall form is part of the composition of your physique, society’s too much attention to athletes might cause the emergence of the sense of narcissism in them. Based on this probability, the present descriptive and field-based study investigates the relationship between narcissism and physical perception of athletes based on gender differences. The statistical population of the research includes all athletes active in sports clubs (gymnastics and aerobics) in Sanandaj, of which 294 volunteers were selected as the sample. The findings of the study indicated that there is a significant relationship between narcissism and physical perception in male and female athletes. For female athletes, their self-esteem was correlated with a correlation coefficient of 0.683 and for male athletes with a correlation coefficient of 0.734. In general, it can be deduced that extreme dissatisfaction with appearance may conceal mental illness, and disregarding it may have serious medical consequences.
