Abstract


Self-talk is crucial since it significantly affects how people feel and what they do. It may be

positive and encouraging, inspiring, or it can be damaging and diminishing one's

self-confidence. Aim of the present study was to examine the impact of neurological

intervention on self-talk of an individual. Single group pre-post research design was used.

Information was collected through self-report measure, self-talk scale by Brinthaupt et al.,

2009. In total 108 participants (Male= 32 and female= 76) aged between 18-60 years

participated. After conducting a pre-intervention assessment, participants were asked to

practise the tongue drop intervention, learned from John Grinder for at least 24 hours. Post intervention

the same test was re-administered with the same participants. T-test dependent

was used for analysing the differences in score of self-talk before and after the intervention.

Results show significant difference in scores after the intervention t (107) =2.132, P< .043.

Therefore, findings suggest that neurological intervention can be an effective method to

regulate self-talk which can lead to a high functioning state of mind.
