Encouraging Generalization from Success Using a Directed Abstraction Writing Intervention

Pete Zunick, PhD Candidate, Ohio State University


People sometimes fail to benefit from a success, resisting making abstract generalizations from the success to their self-concepts. I will discuss an intervention called “directed abstraction” that encourages people to draw broad conclusions about their abilities following a success and describe the research conducted to develop and validate this intervention. Along the way, we will discuss the process of developing applied interventions based on social psychological theory and some of the potential pitfalls of that process.


Speaker:

    I’m interested in how people’s beliefs about themselves can interfere with their goals, and how simple writing interventions can alter these maladaptive trajectories. Specifically, I look at how abstractly framing a past success can help people with negative self-views draw positive conclusions about their abilities. In other lines of work, I examine what factors bias people’s mental representations of their own faces, as well as how certain attitudes or preferences help people define who they are.
