This research is part of a bigger research project (OTKAK-111 789, MATEHETSZ) that aims to reveal the relationship between competitive attitudes, coping with winning and losing and psychological and somatic health.

The goal of the present part of the research was to analyze how three different patterns of coping with winning and losing (balanced, narcissistic-aggressive, avoidant, Fülöp, 2013) relate to such psychological constructs as mental toughness, resilience, benign and malicious perfectionism and achievement motivation.

Altogether 560 high school and university students (223 males and 337 females) participated in the research. The following questionnaires were applied: Coping with Winning and Losing Survey (Fülöp & Berkics, 2007); Mental Toughness (Sheard, 2012); Revised Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (Campbell-Sills & Stein, 2007); Consequences of Perfectionism Scale (Kim, 2010; Stöber, Hoyle & Last, 2013) Almost Perfect Scale-Revised (Slaney, Rice, Mobley, Trippi & Ashby, 2001) Achievement Motivation Scale (Helmreich, 1978). The presentation will demonstrate the results.
