The present studies suggest that because upward counterfactual thoughts indicate reasons for a poor performance, they can also serve as excuses. In this case, upward counterfactual thoughts should result in more positive self-esteem and reduced future motivation. Five studies demonstrated these effects in the context of self-handicapping. First, upward counterfactual thinking was increased in the presence of a self-handicap. Second, upward counterfactual thoughts indicating the presence of a self-handicap protected self-esteem following failure. Finally, upward counterfactual thoughts that protect self-esteem reduced preparation for a subsequent performance as well as performance itself. These findings suggest that the consequences of upward counterfactuals for affect and motivation are moderated by the goals of the individual as well as the content of the thoughts.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Personality and Social Psychology 95 (2008), 2, pp. 274-292</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/10089"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:14:02Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:14:02Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Self-Handicapping, Excuse Making, and Counterfactual Thinking : Consequences for Self-Esteem and Future Motivation</dcterms:title> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
