Daily Feedback of Self-Concept Clarity and Grit

Unknown Date (has links)
Self-concept clarity and grit are important constructs in the self-concept and selfregulation domains. Though distinct in their focus on identity and goal processes, self-concept clarity and grit similarly emphasize the extent to which self-views and goal-perseverance are strong, clear, consistent, and unshakeable. We hypothesized self-knowledge and goalperseverance may be mutually reinforcing given the role of self-knowledge in directing goal pursuit, and of goal pursuit in structuring the self-concept. The present study tested this hypothesis in the form of whether self-concept clarity and grit reciprocally influence one other across time, and was conducted using a daily diary design with 97 college-aged participants across several weeks. Data were analyzed using multilevel cross-lagged panel modeling. Results indicated daily self-concept clarity and grit both had positive influences on each other across time, while controlling for their previous values. The reciprocal influences were also symmetric: self-concept clarity and grit had equally strong influences on each other. The results of the present study are the first to indicate the existence of reinforcing feedback loops between self-concept clarity and grit, and to demonstrate that fluctuations in self-knowledge trigger fluctuations in goal resolve, and vice versa. The results suggest the two are, in part, both causes and consequences of one another. / Includes bibliography. / Dissertation (Ph.D.)--Florida Atlantic University, 2016. / FAU Electronic Theses and Dissertations Collection

Conscious and non-conscious bases of social judgement: mindset and implicit attitudes in the perception of intergroup conflict

Unknown Date (has links)
Research on social judgment typically emphasizes one of three processes that enable unequivocal understanding of events with ambiguous causality. In the social influence perspective, people are susceptible to the interpretations offered by others. In the explicit attitudes perspective, people interpret events in line with their consciously held attitudes and values. In the implicit attitudes perspective, people interpret events in line with unconscious biases. The model investigated in the present study assumes that these processes vary in salience depending on people's mindset. Participants with low versus high implicit racial bias toward Blacks read a narrative concerning this altercation under either a lowlevel or a high-level mindset and then read a summary that blamed one of the parties or they did not read a summary. As predicted, low-level participants allocated responsibility to the African-American if they had a high implicit racial bias and to the White if they had a low implicit racial bias, regardless of the summary manipulation. Contrary to prediction, however, high-level participants' allocation of responsibility did not reflect their explicit prejudicial attitudes. Instead, they corrected for their implicit biases in their trait inferences and affective reactions, in line with research suggesting that a high-level mindset promotes self-regulatory processes in social judgment. / by Susan D.

Emotion regulation of nervousness and boredom.

January 2012 (has links)
本論文重新探討自我調節的情緒管理(self regulation of emotion regulation)並提出個人能夠因應自己的實際情緒 (actual affect) 而把其反饋和調節至接近理想的情緒 (ideal affect)上。 / 為了解自我調節的情緒管理所涉及的過程以及其影響,我隨機安排94位香港的女大學生處於緊張(高激發負面/ high arousal negative)或者悶氣(低激發負面/low arousal negative)的情景當中,隨後邀請她們選擇高激發正面(high arousal positive) 或者低激發正面(low arousal positive)的產品,以及試玩她們所選擇的電子遊戲來調節管理之前受影響的情緒。結果顯示:參加者比較偏向選擇低激發正面的產品。同時,參加者完成任何一種電子遊戲也降低了之前所受的負面情緒。曾處於緊張情景的參加者在玩後增加冷靜;而曾處於悶氣情景的參加者在玩後則減少冷靜。是次研究的結果支持上面提出的說法,即是:當人自我調節和管理情緒時,人能夠縮短實際情緒和理想情緒之間的差距從而管理負面的情緒。 / This study reviewed the literature in self regulation of emotion and suggested that individuals would modulate negative actual affect to turn it into positive ideal affect. To examine emotion regulatory mechanisms and outcomes, 94 Hong Kong female Chinese undergraduates were randomly assigned to either nervousness (high arousal negative) or boredom (low arousal negative) conditions. Next, they selected either high arousal positive (HAP) or low arousal positive (LAP) products in decision making tasks. Based on their selection, they then played HAP or LAP video game to perform emotion regulatory tasks. Although participants chose LAP over HAP products, participants decreased induced negative affect after playing the selected video game. Also, participants from the nervousness condition increased low arousal positive affect in calmness and those from boredom condition decreased it. Current findings suggested that individuals minimized the discrepancy between actual and ideal affect to regulate negative emotions. / Detailed summary in vernacular field only. / Detailed summary in vernacular field only. / Ho, Yuen Wan. / Thesis (M.Phil.)--Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2012. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 37-41). / Abstracts also in Chinese. / Acknowledgement --- p.i / Abstract (English) --- p.ii / Abstract (Chinese) --- p.iii / Table of Contents --- p.iv / List of Tables --- p.vi / Chapter Chapter 1 --- : Introduction --- p.1 / Emotion Regulation: A Consensual Process Model --- p.1 / Emotion in Self Regulation and Self Regulation of Emotion --- p.3 / Emotion Regulation: Processes of Interaction between Actual and Ideal Affect --- p.4 / My Present Study --- p.9 / Chapter Chapter 2 --- : Method --- p.13 / Participants --- p.13 / Materials --- p.13 / Affect Induction Tasks --- p.13 / Product Decision Making Tasks --- p.14 / Product Testing Tasks --- p.15 / Measures and Procedures --- p.16 / Chapter Chapter 3 --- : Results --- p.22 / Actual and Ideal Affect before affect induction tasks --- p.22 / Manipulation of Nervousness and Boredom --- p.22 / Individual Product and Activity Preferences in Product Decision Making Tasks --- p.25 / Actual Affect in and after Product Testing Tasks --- p.26 / Chapter Chapter 4 --- : Discussion --- p.31 / References --- p.37 / Appendix --- p.42 / Chapter I --- Consumer Preferences Questionnaire --- p.42 / Chapter II --- Game Evaluation Questionnaire --- p.43 / Chapter III --- Suspicion Questionnaire --- p.44

The effects of the development of executive skills program (DOES) on Chinese children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms

Ho, Yim-chi, 何艷芝 January 2012 (has links)
This waitlist-controlled study aimed to evaluate the effects of the “Development Of Executive Skills (DOES)” program (Education Bureau, HKSAR, 2010) on the executive functions of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms. Sixteen participants (15 boys, 1 girl), aged 7 to 8 years (M = 7.95, SD = 0.59), were recruited voluntarily from a local service center. Half of them, the DOES group, received the 7 weekly training sessions after the pre-tests; the other half, the Waitlist group, joined the same program after the post-tests. Their demographic characteristics, medical conditions and nonverbal intelligence were comparable. Cognitive measures and parent observations assessing their executive skills and social behavioral functions were taken before the study, after the training for the DOES group and that for the Waitlist group. No statistically significant intervention effect was found. Effect size analyses, however, suggested potential social benefits of the program. Recommendations on improving the program effectiveness were discussed. / published_or_final_version / Educational Psychology / Master / Master of Social Sciences

Achievement goals, motivational self-regulation and academic adjustment among elite Chinese high school students

Wang, Cen 20 July 2013 (has links)
The current study investigated the mediating role of motivational self-regulation (MSR) strategies (i.e., mastery self-talk, performance/extrinsic self-talk, performance/relative ability self-talk, interest enhancement, relevance enhancement, efficacy enhancement) in the relationships between achievement goals and cognitive and behavioral engagement (i.e., involved engagement, withdrawal in the face of difficulties, avoidance of challenges, rehearsal and elaboration) among 1096 Chinese gifted high school students (43% male). Structural equation modeling supported the mediating role of MSR strategies. Mastery goals positively predicted all six MSR strategies with medium to large effects whereas performance approach goals positively predicted five out of six MSR strategies with small to medium effects. While all six MSR strategies positively predicted involved engagement, rehearsal and elaboration, interest enhancement and efficacy enhancement showed additional benefits. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed. / Department of Educational Psychology

The role of self-regulation in decision making by entrepreneurs

Thesis (PhD)--Macquarie University (Macquarie Graduate School of Management), 2006. / Bibliography: leaves 243-283. / Introduction -- Literature on entrepreneurship, self-regulation and decision making -- Literature on decision making by entrepreneurs -- Methodology -- Results -- Discussion of empirical findings. / This thesis explores the role of self-regulation in decision making by entrepreneurs. It builds on prior research which has focussed on the cognitive aspects of key decisions made by entrepreneurs. Among these key decisions are career choice, opportunity evaluation and opportunity exploitation. One area of this ongoing reearch program is the exploration of social congition and self-regulatory factors in decision making. Hower, this area is still in its infancy, significant gaps remain and there are no coherent theories about such phenomena in the field of entrepreneurship. The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to theory development on these topics. / Mode of access: World Wide Web. / viii, 283 leaves ill
