Author's abstract

In this study of the effects of self-talk on dart throwing performance, subjects (N=60) were randomly assigned to positive, negative, or control conditions then completed 15 experimental dart throws. Results indicated that positive self-talk subjects performed significantly better (p < .05) than negative self-talk subjects on the dart throwing task. Negative self-talk subjects reported that they expected to improve significantly more on a future dart throwing task than did positive self-talk and control condition subjects. Verf.-Referat
