When Perceiving Low Control Fosters Great Expectations: the Case of Financial Decision Making
This research investigates the impact of incidental personal control threats on outcome expectancies. Results show that control threats paradoxically increase the perceived likelihood for positive outcomes because they heighten individuals’ desire to perceive themselves as competent. Accordingly, the effect strengthens as positive outcomes become more diagnostic of competence.
