This thesis investigated how propositions of the Revised Applied Model for Deliberate Imagery Use (RAMDIU) related to imagery ability. Chapter 2 and 3 established that PETTLEP imagery can improve the ease and vividness of internal, external and kinesthetic imagery of movements. Participants perceived the physical and environments elements of the PETTLEP model to be the most helpful for imaging easily and vividly. Chapter 4 investigated the use of these two elements in athletes’ ease of imaging five different types of sport imagery (i.e., skill, strategy, mastery, goal, and affect). The findings revealed positive associations between the use of physical and environment PETTLEP elements and ease of imaging all five imagery types. The findings of Chapters 2 to 4 suggest that the use of physical environment elements will likely result in greater ease of imaging cognitive and motivational imagery content and that the relationship between “What (type) & How” and “Imagery Ability” in the RAMDIU should be bi-directional. Chapter 5 explored the RAMDIU “Who” component by investigating whether emotion regulation in was associated with their sport imagery ability. Only emotional reappraisal was positively related with “Imagery Ability”. Overall, the thesis establishing that imagery ability can be influenced by the individual’s characteristics and how athletes image. Practitioners should consider athletes’ characteristics and how they are going to image to maximize the effectiveness of the imagery intervention in achieving the desired outcome(s).
