The Impact of Metacognition on Commitment For Attainment Versus Maintenance Goals

Despite the importance of attainment and maintenance goals, little is known about their interactions with metacognitive experiences.

Moreover, an accessible independent (interdependent) self-construal increases commitment for attainment (maintenance) goals.
