Abstract

Estimated the relevance of task-related behavior (performance) and rule- and norm-related behavior (fairness and sanctions) to psychological crisis vulnerability during competitive situations. 45 team-handball experts estimated the probability of performance quality and rule- and norm-related categories of behavior, in anxiety-related crisis and noncrisis states. Results indicate that crisis and noncrisis conditions can be differentiated significantly by all the variables as well as by their interactive impact. Vulnerability to crisis was associated with unexpectedly poor performance, unexpected and unfair behavior, and unexpected and sanctioned behavior.
