Possible self-interventions can help people imagine themselves having a successful future. Using social cognitive theory and…

Li, Yaoran; Sheldon, Kennon M.; Rouder, Jeffrey N.; Bergin, David A.; Geary, David C. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Self-referent performance beliefs can influence people's decision making related to long-term goals. Current measures of such beliefs, however, do not explicitly focus on the long-term aspects of goal achievement. We introduce a new concept, Long-Term Prospects (LTP), which is defined as the self-perception that one can maintain the continuous…
