Abstract [en]

Research within regulatory fit framework has shown that athletes perform better when in a state of regulatory fit. This state occurs when there is a match between a player’s chronic regulatory focus and the framing of the given task. In a counterbalanced within-groups experimental design, bowling players (N = 34) performed various rounds of the same ecologically-valid pin-setting configuration under two different experimental conditions: in a promotion manner (aspiration to make the spare) and in a prevention manner (obligation not to miss the spare). Results showed no significant relationship between regulatory fit and bowling performance. Findings are discussed in terms of task difficulty and experimental manipulation in relation to regulatory fit theory.

Abstract [sv]

Forskning inom ramverket för regulatory fit har visat att idrottare presterar bättre när de befinner sig i ett tillstånd av regulatory fit. Detta tillstånd uppstår när det finns en överensstämmelse mellan en spelares kroniska regulatory fokus och framingen av den givna uppgiften. I en motbalanserad inomgruppsdesign genomförde bowlare (N = 34) flera omgångar av en ekologiskt valid kägeluppställning, fördelad på två olika experimentella förhållanden: ena på ett promotion-sätt (strävan efter att spärra), den andra på ett prevention- sätt (skyldighet att inte missa spärren). Resultatet visade inget signifikant samband mellan regulatory fit och förbättrad prestation. Vidare diskuteras resultatet utifrån uppgiftens svårighet och de experimentella manipulationerna, i relation till regulatory fit teorin.
