Implications of Self-Handicapping Strategies for Academic Achievement: A Reconceptualization.
Murray, Carolyn B.; Warden, M. Robert
Journal of Social Psychology, v132 n1 p23-37 Feb 1992
Presents questionnaire results concerning self-handicapping, course-related expectancies, and study habits. Reports that self-handicappers were more likely than others to make external and unstable attributions. Concludes that the underlying cognitive mechanism of self-handicapping strategies is a defensive attributional pattern that protects an individual from making unequivocal causal inferences of inability.
