THOMAS, O., MAYNARD, I. and HANTON, S. (2004). Temporal aspects of competitive anxiety and self-confidence as a function of anxiety perceptions. The Sport psychologist, 18 (2), 172-187.Full text not available from this repository.
Competitive anxiety and self-confidence were examined temporally in "facilitators," "debilitators," and "mixed interpreters" using the modified CSAI-2 (intensity, direction, frequency). MANOVA's (group 3 time-to-competition) and follow-up tests revealed no significant interactions but revealed significant main effects for both factors. Facilitators displayed increased intensities of self-confidence, more positive interpretations of cognitive and somatic symptoms, increased frequency of self-confidence, and decreased frequency of cognitive symptoms than debilitators through performance preparation. Time-to-competition effects indicated intensities of cognitive and somatic responses increased, and self-confidence decreased near competition. Directional perceptions of cognitive and somatic responses became less positive, and the frequency of these symptoms increased toward the event. Findings have implications for intervention design and timing and emphasize the importance of viewing symptoms over temporal phases.
