Sample consists of 100 athletes and 100 non- athletes, among these 100 athletes, 50 are male and 50 are female and among 100 non-athletes 50 are male and 50 are female, taken from National University of Computers and Emerging Sciences (FASTNUCES) (25 athletes, 25 non-athletes), International Islamic University Islamabad, IIUI (25 athletes, 25 non-athletes), National University of Science and Technology, NUST (25 athletes, 25 non-athletes) and Bahria University (25 athletes, 25 non-athletes). Buss and Perry's Aggression scale (1992) was used to measure the level of aggression and its different types like physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility. It was hypothesized that male athletes have more aggression including physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility as compared to female athletes, male non-athletes have more aggression including physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility as compared to female non-athletes and athletes have more aggression including physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility as compared to nonathletes. It was found that male non-athletes are more aggressive than female non-athletes. There was non-significant difference between athletes and non-athletes and male and female athletes on Buss and Perry's Aggression scale
