Self-Discrepancy: A Theory Relating Self and Affect.
Higgins, E. Tory
Psychological Review, v94 n3 p319-40 Jul 1987
This article presents a theory of how different types of discrepancies between self-state representations are related to different kinds of emotional vulnerabilities. Correlational and experimental evidence supports the predictions of the model. Differences between self-discrepancy theory and other theories of incompatible self-belief and actual self negativity are discussed. (Author/LMO)
