Abstract:
The aim of this thesis was to explore the effects of state anxiety, trait anxiety, and defensiveness on a psychomotor task that required working memory resources. Results from study 1 confirmed that a random response generation task was sensitive to changes in response rate and used limited working memory resources. ARM MANOV A showed that participant behaviour became less random as response rate increased (A. =.239, F9,1 = 14.491)
