Abstract:

The research attempted to define the relationship between actual performance and the state of the biorhythm. Seven subjects performed two physical tasks, one measuring gripping force and the other measuring time-on-target. Performance was compared to each of the individual biorhythm cycles and also to various combinations of the cycles. The results suggested that some functional relationship may exist. Evidence was presented supporting the concept of relativity in biorhythmic influence among individuals.
