Abstract

The dual-process theories assume that there are two information processes operating to make decisions and shape behavioral outcomes: automatic and reflective. Automatic processes are characterized by a spontaneous, unconscious reaction to events or objects and involve constructs such as habits and automatic evaluations. On the other hand, reflective processes represent conscious deliberation on available information and invoke constructs such as intentions, efficacy beliefs, outcome expectations and plans. There is now an established body of literature that has applied dual-process theories suggesting that physical activity behavior is, at least in part, modulated by subconscious automatic processes.

Automatic Evaluation of Physical Activity

The dual-process theories assume that there are two information processes operating to make decisions and shape behavioral outcomes: automatic and reflective. Automatic processes are characterized by a spontaneous, unconscious reaction to events or objects and involve constructs such as habits and automatic evaluations. On the other hand, reflective processes represent conscious deliberation on available information and invoke constructs such as intentions, efficacy beliefs, outcome expectations and plans. There is now an established body of literature that has applied dual-process theories suggesting that physical activity behavior is, at least in part, modulated by subconscious automatic processes.
