<strong>Original citation:</strong> D Albarracín, IM Handley, K Noguchi, KC McCulloch, H Li, J Leeper, RD Brown, A Earl, WP Hart (2008). Increasing and decreasing motor and cognitive output: a model of general action and inaction goals. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 95.3: 510-523. <strong>Target of replication:</strong> The original authors showed that participants primed with action words performed better (i.e. solved more number of problems correctly) than participants primed with inaction words did (M= 12.83, SD= 1.86 vs.M= 10.78, SD= 3.15; F(1,34) = 5.68, p= .02). This was the primary target of replication.
