A new study4 has found pos­i­tive feed­back can im­prove per­for­mance. When run­ners did a VO2­max test, some were falsely told their score was higher than the group av­er­age, while oth­ers were given no feed­back. Two weeks later, the test was re­peated; those whose per­for­mance had been praised achieved a higher score (by 3.28 per cent) than they had in the first test. The VO2 max in the un­praised group fell by 4.1 per cent.
