Abstract

An objective, performance-based indicator of imagery control may offer new insights into the field of mental imagery research, since the current tools may not reveal individual differences in this attribute. The Image Control and Recognition Task (ICRT) is comprised of increasingly difficult tasks requiring the combination and manipulation of geometric shapes and letters. An initial study (n=29) provided a sound rationale for further development of the ICRT, with a trend analysis confirming that the items increased in difficulty. In a subsequent study (n=31), a trend analysis indicated that ICRT induced a good range of scores. The ICRT may be helpful in elucidating the frequently reported finding that self-report and performance-based imagery tools have little relationship (Burton, 2003; Burton & Fogarty, 2003; McAvinue & Robertson, 2006-2007).
