Self-Regulation and Ego Control; (PDF) studies the physiological effects of depletion; the effects of psychological variables in self-control depletion effects; the part of motivational and goal states on self-control depletion effects; and numerous cognitive perspectives on self-control exertion. This insightful ebook starts with an introduction of ego depletion phenomena; self-control theories; and experimental examples of research in self-control; and ends by delineating more comprehensive and inclusive models of self-regulation that can account for the full spectrum of results from current research.
In current years; researchers have had difficulty finding the underlying resources responsible for depletion effects. Furthermore; further research has recognized several psychological and motivational factors that can improve depletion effects. These findings have led many to question assumptions of the main strength model and suggest that capacity limitations alone cannot account for the perceived effects of depletion. Self-Regulation and Ego Control simplifies discourse across researchers from different ideological camps and advances more incorporated views of self-regulation based on this research.
- Enables discourse across researchers from different ideological camps within the field.
- Notifies and enriches future research and advances more combined views of self-regulation
- Details the overlap between physical and mental depletion; and the potential interplay and substitutability of resources
- Includes the neuropsychological evidence for depletion effects; emphasizing the roles of reward; valuation; and control in self-regulation
- Evaluates the expectancies of mental energy change; roles of willpower and individual differences in the modulation of self-control exertion
- Challenges the view that depletion reveals capacity limitations and includes newer models that take a more motivational account of resource allocation
- Highlights the effects of numerous states such as power; positive mood; implementation intentions; mindfulness and social rejection as moderators of depletion
- Offers clarification of the distinctions between self-control in the context of goal-directed behavior versus related terms like executive control; self-regulation; and inhibition
