Deliberate First Or Act First? the Effect of Self-Construal on Goal Pursuit

This research examines cultural differences in goal pursuit. Independent self-construal is associated with cost-benefit analysis, which leads to emphasis on assessment-related goal pursuit activities. Conversely, interdependent self-construal is associated with agreeableness, which leads to emphasis on locomotion-related goal pursuit activities.
