The Effect of Self-Multiplicity on Compliance With Health Recommendations

“Self-multiplicity” describes the extent to which people perceive themselves as having many (vs. few) self-aspects (e.g., social roles, identities, or goals). We demonstrate that higher self-multiplicity increases compliance with health recommendations, and this is due to the effect of self-multiplicity on self-worth.
