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.
