This study was carried out to analyze how psychological anxiety factors perceived by sky divers at the time of sky diving affect self-confidence. To that end, a survey was executed on 150 sky divers and 123 questionnaires were selected for the final analysis with SPSS v.21. Major findings of the study are as follows: first, sky divers use stretching and breathing the most to cope with stress-related symptoms; second, psychological anxiety and self-confidence were different in religion, age and the number of sky diving; third, sky divers` psychological anxiety affects self-confidence negatively.
