The aim of this study was to study the relationship between trait and state anxiety with force control and adjustment of dominant hand’s angle in male athlete and non-athlete students. For this purpose, 200 students (100 athletes and 100 non-athletes) where randomly selected among all male bachelor students of Arak University in the academic year 2012-2013 by simple random method. The mean age of subjects was 21.80±1.96. The required data were collected using personal information questionnaire, Spielberger state-trait anxiety inventory (STAI), Zhukovski’s dominant hand’s angle accommodation test, and Ablacova’s force control of dominant hand test. The findings showed that there is a strong and positive correlation between trait and state anxiety and kinesthesia in both of the groups. There results also showed that kinesthesia error can predict the trait anxiety (p=0.041) and state anxiety (p=0.011). Study findings indicated that there is a significant relationship between trait and state anxiety and kinesthesia. In addition, non-athletes showed higher levels of anxiety and hallucination. According to the moderate levels of state anxiety in athletes, it can be stated that this study supports the inverted U hypothesis.
