1. Block, Carly Juliana. An Examination of Self-Talk and Perfectionism in Collegiate Athletes.

Degree: MSin Exercise and Health Studies, Exercise and Health Studies, 2018, Miami University

The purpose of this study was to examine how perfectionism influences the self-talk of athletes. Additionally, a second purpose was to examine athletes’ perceptions of their positive and negative self-talk, in terms of how these forms of self-talk influence their performance. To test this relationship and analyze athletes’ perception of their own self-talk, the Sport Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale-2 and a Self-Talk Survey was administered to 270 collegiate athletes from various universities. A correlational analysis indicated that when athletes scored higher on organization as a form of adaptive perfectionism, the more positive self-talk and less negative self-talk they used. Conversely, when athletes scored higher on the maladaptive forms of perfectionism, the more negative self-talk and less positive self-talk they used. A thematic analysis revealed that positive and negative self-talk can be both helpful and hurtful to athletes’ sport performance depending on the situation and the individual. Advisors/Committee Members: Vealey, Robin (Committee Chair).
