Self-efficacy and attributional beliefs

Discuss the role of self-efficacy and attributional beliefs on:

What you hope to become (hoped-for possible self)
The selves you could become (expected possible self)
The selves that you fear of becoming (feared possible self).

  1. The formation of possible selves is influenced by developmental factors, socio-cultural factors, access to models, attributional history, and self-efficacy judgments.

Discuss at least two of these factors on your own hoped for and feared possible selves.

  1. Discuss the role of self efficacy and learned helplessness on possible selves and motivation, and how culture may play a role in whether or not one sees “hoped for” possible selves or “feared possible selves” more likely in academic or career success.
