What does the Yerkes-Dodson law refer to
Yerkes-Dodson law states that the performance of a person increases with physiological or mental arousal up to some point. When a person has mental arousal then the performance of the person goes up. Therefore, performance is directly proportional to physiological or mental arousal. However, when a person is stressed up then the performance of the person goes down. Therefore, performance is inversely proportional to stress.
Yerkes-Dodson law, therefore, refers to the relationship between pressure and performance.
