The Different Impacts of Inter- Versus Intra-Personal Comparison Outcomes on Self-Evaluation and Goal Pursuit

We propose and show that inter-personal success has greater positive effect on self-evaluation and goal pursuit than intra-personal success whereas intra-personal failure is more devastating on self-evaluation and goal pursuit than inter-personal failure. The strengths of these effects depend on the comparison outcome’s implication for goal attainment.
