M. and Dodson, J. D. (1908). The relation of strength of stimulus to rapidity of habit formation. Journal of Comparative Neurology and Psychology, 18, 459–482) Task 2 Make a short list of activities that might require low levels of arousal for optimal performance and some that will require the opposite. Easterbrook’s cue utilization theory Although the theory by Yerkes and Dodson was and still is widely acclaimed, it was criticized for failing to explain why and how arousal affects performance.

The first of these theories was put forward by Kahneman (1973). Kahneman believes that individuals have a limited number of resources. The amount is not fixed but flexible. Kahneman claims that, as arousal rises, the number of resources available within the brain increases. Like Yerkes and Dodson, he argues that this increase is beneficial for performance up to a certain point, after which there will be a return to baseline levels of performance. To Kahneman, increase in arousal is not the only factor affecting performance.

I also believe that some unethical actions are tactically counterproductive. Take the professional foul in football. It is not unusual to see an attacker fouled in the penalty area when he/she has only the goalkeeper to beat. This results in a penalty. So the opposition can call on their best penalty taker and the goalkeeper has to stay on the goal line. Had the attacker not been fouled, the keeper would have left the line to narrow the angle. Furthermore, more often than not the attacker in possession was less likely to score than a specialist penalty taker.
