Abstract:

Except in unfamiliar circumstances, the highly skilled performer responds to holistically perceived situations with previously learned appropriate actions. The analytic mind is thus by-passed in the production of performance. We examine four possible roles of the by-passed analytic mind, and conclude that the highest level of masterful performance is achieved when the analytic mind is quiet and the performer is totally absorbed in his activity.
