Self 3 Sources of Self-knowledge and the Motives to Self-regulation (Social Comparison Theory) Interesting topic this week as we delve into the inner workings of our own minds for understanding as to the way we self-regulate. To begin to understand self-regulation, we begin with the working self-concept. “Self-verification and self-improvement paly strong rolls as we analyze our motivations for being who we are. Our built in need for self-enhancement leads us to be a bit bias when speaking of ourselves, yet positive illusions will always prevail” (Taylor, Peplau, & Sears 2006, p.109-116).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
