Abstract : The role of subject factors in the expenditure of effort during treadmill exercise was tested by using a technique which gave S continuous control over his walking speed. It was found that Ss walked faster when an audience was present than when they performed privately. The individual differences in work output between the two experimental conditions were found to be related to scores on some scales of the California Psychological Inventory. (Author)
