The relationship of anxiety in both its state and trait manifestation to simple motor performance has been established in a number of studies. The present study is an attempt to extend these relationships to more complex motor performances, that is, to the level of a unitary group of motor habits such as is present in an athletic task. In doing this the present study utilizes not only direct assessments of both state and trait anxiety, but also assessment of certain personality traits which may be important in mediating the expression of anxiety and activation level.
