When Self-Perceived Efforts Lead to Perseverance: Implications For the Development of Pro-Environmental Behaviors

What type of pro-environmental behavior increases the likelihood of engaging in other pro-environmental behaviors in the future? We compare the effects of effortless behavior with that of effortful behavior on subsequent pro-environmental behaviors. Three studies show that effortful behaviors increase future behaviors in accordance with the predictions of self-signaling theory.
