The Effects of Type of Imagery Selection and Multiplicity of Images Covert Positive Reinforcement.
Pace, Diana G.; And Others
This study addressed three questions: Is there a reinforcing effect of positive covert imagery? Is the Reinforcement Survey Schedule a more effective aid to selection of positive imagery than individual selection of standardized assignment? Do multiple images produce greater conditioning than does a single image? Forty-six subjects were randomly assigned to six covert conditioning treatments or to a no-imagery control group. Subjects generated a list of numbers between 0 and 100, one each 10 seconds. Numbers ending in one, two, three, eight, or nine were followed by the experimenter's cueing to imagine a positive image. ANCOVA (baseline as coavariate) indicated no significant findings. The implications for theory and research are discussed. (Author)
