Topic - How mentally strong a climber are you? - SURVEY/DISCUSSION

jwlhall - on 03 Apr 2013
Dear UKClimbers,

What gives a climber a mental edge?

What does that edge mean they can achieve?

Academic research is being conducted into successful mindsets in climbing, and we are offering an online survey that will provide you with your own personal mental edge profile:

The lead researcher is John Hall, a psychologist studying Sport and Exercise Psychology at Staffordshire University, and a climber, mountaineer, and mountain ultra-runner. The project is looking at the impact of mental toughness and mental skills such as imagery, goal-setting, self-talk, and relaxation on performance in various sports, such as climbing and ultra-endurance events. The research is fully supported by Staffordshire University, is approved by the University Ethics Committee, and this request is posted with the express permission of UKClimbing.

It should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete the 80 multiple-choice questions necessary to generate your personal report. All information submitted will be treated in strict confidence and personal details made fully anonymous in any publications.

Once all the data has been analysed you can also receive an overall summary explaining what was learnt about successful mental approaches to climbing.

Does this sound interesting? If so, please click the link above to the survey and complete it as soon as possible. This is unique research, in a cutting-edge area of interest. It should benefit you, the UKClimbing and wider climbing community, and help push the boundaries of sport research overall!

Many thanks, and please post any comments on the survey or the topic in reply to this thread.
