Abstract [en]

Objectives:An important yet unresolved question stemming from judgment and decision-makingliterature is whether individuals evaluate physical experiences in relative or absolute terms.Design and method:The study examined 181 experienced basketball players in a 2 (type of experience:predicted versus real) x 2 (evaluation mode: separate versus joint) x 2 (type of activity: running versusshooting) experimental research design.Results:We demonstrated that individuals who were familiar with physical tasks evaluated predictedand real physical experiences in absolute terms. In addition, we showed that relativistic modes ofevaluation applied to real physical experiences but not predicted physical experiences.Conclusions:This research contributes to the debate concerning whether prior task experience in-fluences formation of relative evaluations, and reveals that contexts that urge for relative evaluationsundermine happiness with physical tasks.
