Result has to be 2 sentences : we’ve conducted a paired sample t test and found a t value to be t(23)=5.39 with p less than 0.05. The found significant difference between consistent and inconsistent trials such that consistent had a lower reaction time , inconsistent higher reaction time.
Discussion part : start with saying whether you are accepting or rejecting Hypothesis
