Discussion six: motivation and perfomance

When people feel their competency is threatened, they often engage in different self-defensive strategies (i.e., self-serving attributions, self-handicapping, or excuses). Of the three strategies discussed, which one do you think is most effective in making you feel better about yourself. Why do you think that one is more effective than the rest?

Each initial discussion response must be 300 words or more, not including restatements of questions and references, in order to receive the full credit. Each initial response must also contain at least 1 formalized APA 7 references.
