Abstract : The present study investigated the relationship between experimentally induced effect and time perception. Forty-eight female undergraduates were randomly assigned to either a competitive or non-competitive group. The subjects were pretested and after a practice session performed 3 series of puzzlelike tasks. Success and failu systematically varied and indicated by dis crete stimuli. In addition, the success and failure of the competing partner was indicated for subjects in the competitive situation. At the conclusion of each series of puzzles, each of the discrete stimuli (colored lights) was presented to the subject twice for a standard 15'' interval and time estimates were made using the method of reproduction.
