Previous studies on motor actions and their actors' intentions have not focused on the way anticipated action results affect movement trajectories. Alongside intentions in action and prior intentions which are considered the two basic types of intentions linked to movement, the paper, from the perspective of the ideomotor theory, presents the findings of 3 experiments in support of the view that it is also the anticipated outcome of the motor action that influences the execution of the motor action itself.
