Abstract :

The effects of positive and negative self-talk on dart throwing performance were studied. Results indicate that positive self-talk condition subjects performed significantly better in terms of dart throwing accuracy than did negative self-talk condition subjects. In terms of expectations for future dart throwing performance, negative self-talk condition subjects reported that they expected to improve significantly more on a future dart throwing task than did control condition subjects and positive self-talk condition subjects.
