The Dynamics of Goal Revision: Updating the Discrepancy-Reducing Model of Self-Regulation

This research examines the dynamics of goal revision by revising Carver and Scheier’s (1981) classic self-regulation model. We incorporate an additional element, a goal calibrator directed by an S-shaped response function of goal-performance discrepancy, generating updated goals for future monitoring. Four experiments investigate the specific properties of this calibrator.
