In this study, it was aimed to compare the problem solving and perfectionism levels of the students who do sports and do not sports in terms of various variables, and to determine the correlation between problem solving and their perfectionism. In the province of Among the competitions between secondary schools in the 2018-2019 academic year, Milas district of Muğla province, 171 sports students between the ages of 13-15, whose sports age is at least 2 years, were randomly selected among the sports students. SPSS 22.0 statistics program was used in the analysis of the data. After the descriptive analyzes were made on the data, as the results of the Kolmogorov-Simirnov normality test performed by comparing the scores of the participants were not normal, the difference between the groups was examined by applying the Mann-Whitney test, which is one of the non-parametric tests. The "Mann-Whitney U" test was used to determine the differences between the groups. Statistical analyzes were tested at 95% confidence level, p<0.05 values were considered statistically significant. Under the "spearman's rho" test for the correlation between perfectionism and problem-solving scale. As a result, although the perfectionism and problem solving levels of the students who do and do not do sports have a meaningful result, the effect of doing sports varies according to gender; We can say that there is a positive correlation in the sub-dimensions of perfectionism and problem solving skills.
