Psychological and behavioral implications of self-protection and self-enhancement

Psychological and behavioral implications of self-protection and self-enhancement
Psychological and behavioral implications of self-protection and self-enhancement
Self-protection can have psychological and behavioral implications. We contrast them with the implications of a self-enhancement strategy. Both self-enhancement and self-protection have costs and benefits as survival strategies, and we identify some of the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral tradeoffs associated with the differential preferences for each strategy. New analyses on a large existing data set confirm the target article’s hypothesis that women are more attuned than men to potential negative consequences of innovations.

Abstract

Self-protection can have psychological and behavioral implications. We contrast them with the implications of a self-enhancement strategy. Both self-enhancement and self-protection have costs and benefits as survival strategies, and we identify some of the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral tradeoffs associated with the differential preferences for each strategy. New analyses on a large existing data set confirm the target article’s hypothesis that women are more attuned than men to potential negative consequences of innovations.
