Psychology of Self-Regulation: Cognitive, Affective, and Motivational Processes (with J.P. Forgas and D.M. Tice)

The ability to regulate and control our behaviors is a key accomplishment of the human species, yet the psychological mechanisms involved in self-regulation remain incompletely understood. This book presents contributions from leading international researchers who survey the most recent developments in this fascinating area. The chapters shed new light on the subtle and often subconscious ways that the people seek to regulate their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in everyday social life. The contributions seek answers to such intriguing questions as: How can we improve our ability to control our actions? How do people make decisions about which goals to pursue? How do we maintain and manage goal-oriented behavior? What happens when we run out of self-regulation resources? Can we match people and the regulatory demands of to specific tasks so as to optimize performance? What role does self-regulation play in sports performance, in maintaining successful relationships, and in managing work situations?

The book offers a highly integrated and representative coverage of this important field, and is suitable as a core textbook in advanced courses dealing with social behavior and the applications of psychology to real-life problems.

Your thought is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m very blissful that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more true at this point. Having said that, allow me tell you just what did work. Your authoring is definitely highly convincing and that is probably why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can easily see a jumps in logic you come up with, I am not sure of how you appear to unite your ideas that make the actual final result. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you link your dots much better.
