Abstract : Recent literature indicates that a motivational orientation can be unconsciously primed. This study examined whether motivational priming influences students- academic performance within an educational setting and whether this effect is moderated by students- degree of mindfulness. Two randomly assigned groups of students received an identical lesson. However, the teacher-s slideshow contained different subliminal words according to the condition autonomous vs. controlled motivation. Results demonstrated an interaction between students- dispositional mindfulness and priming conditions. The more mindful students were immune to the manipulation whereas the less mindful students were affected by the priming: those primed with autonomous motivation obtained better results than those primed with controlled motivation. These findings contribute to priming research specifying individual differences of priming responsiveness.
