The 37-year-old has a positive record in the team event and won all four of his matches as Europe retained the trophy against their American counterparts in Medinah last year.
He has struggled to replicate that form, though, in the bigger individual tournaments on a regular basis, but the Englishman has insisted that he will do all that he can to be "revved up" for the event that gets underway tomorrow.
"You can't fist-pump on the first hole of a stroke-play event like you do in the Ryder Cup, it's just not possible. The guys are going to look at you as if you are going completely bonkers," he told Sky Sports News.
"But you can certainly try and use some of that mindset and I guess I used it very well at WGC and I guess I need to continue to work on what's going to make me into that player that can play like that for 25 weeks a year.
"It's about me working in my own brain to get myself revved up as much as I do in the Ryder Cup but do it from within. So it's a complete mindset change and something that I'm going to have to think about and continue to work on."
Poulter finished seventh in Augusta 12 months ago.
