Reports of preparatory behaviors and stress among introductory psychology students were measured prior to an exam and subsequent performance, attributions for the performance, and measures of global self-esteem and specific self-conceptions were measured after the exam. Results indicated that high self-handicappers reported reduced effort and more stress prior to the exam, performed worse on the exam, and made different attributions following the exam than did low self-handicappers. Although reported self-handicapping was detrimental to performance, male HSH individuals maintained positive conceptions of specific ability in psychology in spite of poorer performance. Moreover, the results of path analyses indicated that it was these changes in specific ability beliefs that mediated changes in global self-esteem. These findings suggest that the primary motivation underlying self-handicapping may be to protect conceptions of ability in a specific domain, which thereby serves to protect global self-esteem.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Personality and social psychology bulletin 27 (2001), 10, pp. 1378-1389</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Hirt, Edward R.</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:22:17Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:22:17Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2001</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>The Role of Ability Judgments in Self-Handicapping</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Hirt, Edward R.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
