For simple or well-learned tasks, the relationship can be fairly linear as improvement in performance is seen as arousal increases. For complex, unfamiliar, or highly intellectual tasks, the relationship between arousal and performance becomes inverse, with declines in performance as arousal increases. The relationship looked like an upside-down U-shaped curve. Higher arousal was related to higher performance, but only to a point. After a certain level of arousal, performance began to decrease. This relationship is supported by research, and it makes sense if you think about it. You need a certain level of arousal and energy to perform at.

Arousal theory shares some commonalities with drive-reduction theory, but instead of focusing on reducing tension, arousal theory suggests that we are motivated to maintain an ideal level of arousal. Arousal Levels Are Highly Individual. Optimal arousal levels vary from one individual to the next. There are many factors that might influence. Two psychologists, Robert Yerkes and John Dodson first postulated this arousal/performance relationship, and hence it has been called the “Yerkes-Dodson law” for over a century.

54 The catastrophe model, which attempts to explain the arousal-performance relationship, asserts that performance is determined by the dynamic interaction of physiological arousal and cognitive. Drive Reduction Theory states a linear positive relationship between arousal and performance.
This means that at low levels of arousal, performance is low whereas it increases in line with an increase in arousal.
Drive reduction theory became popular during the s and s as a. [Provide more detail] The inverted U hypothesis . The inverted U is the oldest of these three theories, proposed in Yerkes & Dodson in (), [grammar?] the basis of the theory, is that optimal performance will occur when intermediate arousal levels of certain emotions are seen.
Too little arousal and performance will not be sufficient and over arousal will result in declines of performance. Get this from a library.

The two theoretical views on the relationship between arousal and performance in the sports context are the Drive theory and the Inverted-U theory but first, we define arousal and performance in sports context. The relationship between physiological arousal and motor performance has been of interest to psychologist since the early 's/5(5).
It has been almost a century since the first paper describing a non-linear relationship between arousal and behavioral performance was published (Yerkes and Dodson ).This study, an analysis of the influence of task difficulty and stress on discrimination learning Cited by: This sample essay on Which Theory Predicts A Linear Relationship Between Arousal And Performance reveals arguments and important aspects of this topic.

Different tasks require different levels of arousal for optimal performance, research has found. The zone of optimal functioning hypothesis in sports psychology identifies a zone of optimal arousal where an athlete performs best (Hanin, ).
As arousal increases, performance on a task increases and then decreases, as can be seen on the inverted-U arousal–performance. The relationship between changes in arousal and motivation is often expressed as an inverted-U function (also known as the Yerkes-Dodson law).
The basic concept is that, as arousal level increases, performance improves, but only to a point, beyond which increases in arousal lead to a deterioration in performance. Thus some arousal is thought to. The Yerkes-Dodson law is an empirical relationship between arousal and performance, originally developed by psychologists, Robert M.
Yerkes and John Dillingham Dodson in The law dictates that performance increases with physiological or mental arousal (Stress), but only up to a point. When levels of stress become too high, performance. For the first time, the most influential readings in the field of sport and exercise psychology are compiled here in one volume.
Essential Readings in Sport and Exercise Psychology contains the most exciting, innovative, and diverse theoretical orientations and research perspectives generated in the first hundred years of this growing field. In this book, readers will find abridged versions of. A number of assumptions regarding the creation, improvisation, composition, and performance of dance have centered around the relationship of anxiety to the dance experience.
These assumptions point to anxiety as being integral in the creative behaviour of dancers and as being a vital ingredient for good by: 7.

Although some emphasis in the sports psychology literature has been placed on the limitations of the hypothesis, generally the notion of an optimal level of arousal has been well by: The theory states that the major reason people are driven to perform any action is to maintain the optimal level of physiological arousal.
The optimal level of arousal varies from one person to the next. Arousal is one of the fundamental aspects required for attention and information process. So, maintaining the optimal arousal level is vital.Two psychologists, Robert Yerkes and John Dodson first postulated this arousal/performance relationship, and hence it has been called the “Yerkes-Dodson law” for over a century.
