I will use declarative self-talk . . . or will I? Replication, extension, and meta-analyses
A series of studies was conducted by Senay et al. in 2010 to replicate and extend research indicating that self-posed questions have performance benefits. Studies 1-3 compared the effects of the self-posed interrogative question ("Will I?") to declarative ("I will") and control self-talk, and found no significant group differences in motivation, perceived exertion, or performance. In Studies 4-5, interrogative, declarative, and control self-talk primes were compared, and no outcome differences were found. In Study 6, the effects of self-talk on motivation, perceived exertion, and physical performance were assessed. The self-talk groups performed better and were more motivated than the control group, but declarative and interrogative groups did not differ from each other. Finally, meta-analyses of the six studies indicated no significant differences among conditions. These results highlight the value of replication and suggest that factors other than grammatical form of self-posed questions may drive the demonstrated relationships between self-talk and performance.
