Abstract

Self-affirmation theory refers to the idea that when people are reminded of their good qualities, they are less likely to react defensively to negative situations. This poster indicates five scenarios that are supposed to induce defensiveness in participants. The scenarios are within the domains of academia, health, romance, alcohol use, and friendship. We will instruct participants to read these scenarios and answer several follow-up questions in hopes to understand how they would respond. We also included individual difference measures that we believe will affect the responses to each scenario.
