Increased performance with increased personal control: A self-presentation interpretation

Increased performance with increased personal control: A self-presentation interpretation

“It was concluded that providing increased control over a task often results in increased concern for self-presentation that may lead to a better performance on the task.” (p.350) “People in positions of increased control also may experience an increase in their feelings of personal responsibility for the outcomes of the situation and an increase in their concern for public evaluation following the outcomes.” (p.358)
