Summary
This book showcases current research that asks a variety of questions: Can goals be activated outside our awareness? How do interpersonal dynamics affect self? How do we maintain a distinctive identity in a group context? Is too much choice or self-determination "bad"? How does self-esteem and morality influence self? Chapter authors discuss the importance of motivation, emotion, and physiological arousal in self-related processes; explore the role of awareness in goal-driven behavior; and describe the interactive influence of social context on self and self on social context. A formal, integrated model of self-regulation is also proposed. This book challenges readers to consider new approaches in studying and thinking about motivation and self.
