Abstract: We examined the influence of opposite states of mind (the “telic” vs. “paratelic” state) anddominances (personality characteristics that reflect a preference for one of these states) onemotion and stress responses to exercise. Telic dominant participants completing resistanceexercise in the telic state condition reported decreased relaxation from pre- to post-exercise.All participants reported more pleasant emotions when performing endurance exercise in thetelic state condition. In contrast, in the paratelic state condition, they reported increased anxiety.These results lend mixed support for previous research but suggest that meta-motivationalstate is more influential than dominance.
