Results A significant difference was recorded and displayed regarding all scored and tested variables in the results with when I am busyscored highest [F = 9.540 with sig. (.002), t = -3.089 with 2-tailed sig. (.002)]and when I feel tense scored lowest [F =.013 with sig. (.909), t =.114 with 2-tailed sig. (.909)], in tables 5 & 6 respectively.
