AbstractWulf and colleagues' constrained action hypothesis contends that an external focus allows automatic processing of movement. We argue that any benefits associated with an external focus may be a result of reduced information processing load, relative to internal focus instructions, rather than the promotion of automaticity. The propensity of individuals to adapt their focus of attention in the face of changing task demands is also discussed.
