Competence literature tied to achievement literature. Are you capable of doing well in achievement settings or in any setting that requires you to perform in some manner. Historically, literatures like Need for Achievement If you have a high need for achievement you are more likely to enter into situations that are more demanding. Rather than choosing the easy situation, you will chose something more difficult but in the range of difficulty that it will give you some information. (Has to be within your range of capability) Achievement people and Learned Helplessness people were using the same paradigm. How you cope with setbacks/failures They not only came up with the same procedure but also the same moderating variables. Learned Helplessness - problematic attributional style Achievement Literature - what kinds of attributions might you make about the failure, or about a success, that would best facilitate your improved concentration, heightened confidence level. If you make external attributions for your failure that will be less bad than if you make internal attributions for your failure. If you have the tendency to blame external things for your failures that can be problematic too. You can teach yourself the idea that unnaturalness in the world is the natural state of affairs. If you failed you should make an internal attribution AS LONG as it s unstable. “I just didn t out out the kind of effort that I could have invested. I allowed my mood to take over” Unstable is good because you can control it. Overwriting factor is whether or not you are in charge of these factors to which you are attributing these factors.

    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.
