People become erratic and unpredictable when engaging in a task in which they have low self-efficacy. People with high self-efficacy tend to take a wider view of a task in order to determine the best plan. Obstacles often stimulate people with high self-efficacy to greater efforts, where someone with low self-efficacy will tend toward discouragement and giving up. A person with high self-efficacy will attribute failure to external factors, where a person with low self-efficacy will blame low ability.

For example, someone with high self-efficacy in regards to mathematics may attribute a poor test grade to a harder-than-usual test, illness, lack of effort, or insufficient preparation. A person with a low self-efficacy will attribute the result to poor mathematical ability. Health behaviors[ edit ] Choices affecting health, such as smokingphysical exercisedieting, condom use, dental hygiene, seat belt use, and breast self-examination, are dependent on self-efficacy.

Self-efficacy influences how high people set their health goals e. A number of studies on the adoption of health practices have measured self-efficacy to assess its potential to initiate behavior change. Greater engagement in healthy behaviors, result in positive patient health outcomes such as improved quality of life. Relationship to loss of control[ edit ] Further information: Locus of control Bandura showed that difference in self-efficacy correlates to fundamentally different world views.

For example, a student with high self-efficacy who does poorly on an exam will likely attribute the failure to the fact that they did not study enough. However, a student with low self-efficacy who does poorly on an exam is likely to believe the cause of that failure was due to the test being too difficult or challenging, which the student does not control.

Factors affecting self-efficacy[ edit ] Bandura identifies four factors affecting self-efficacy. Experience, or "enactive attainment" — The experience of mastery is the most important factor determining a person's self-efficacy. Success raises self-efficacy, while failure lowers it. According to psychologist Erik Erikson: They may have to accept artificial bolstering of their self-esteem in lieu of something better, but what I call their accruing ego identity gains real strength only from wholehearted and consistent recognition of real accomplishment, that is, achievement that has meaning in their culture.

When we see someone succeeding, our own self-efficacy increases; where we see people failing, our self-efficacy decreases. This process is most effectual when we see ourselves as similar to the model. Although not as influential as direct experience, modeling is particularly useful for people who are particularly unsure of themselves.

Social persuasion — Social persuasion generally manifests as direct encouragement or discouragement from another person. Discouragement is generally more effective at decreasing a person's self-efficacy than encouragement is at increasing it. Physiological factors — In stressful situations, people commonly exhibit signs of distress: Perceptions of these responses in oneself can markedly alter self-efficacy.

Getting ' butterflies in the stomach ' before public speaking will be interpreted by someone with low self-efficacy as a sign of inability, thus decreasing self-efficacy further, where high self-efficacy would lead to interpreting such physiological signs as normal and unrelated to ability. It is one's belief in the implications of physiological response that alters self-efficacy, rather than the physiological response itself.

Perception of Ability — whether your perception of ability is fixed or acquirable. If your perception of ability is fixed, you are less likely to increase self-efficacy whereas if you think ability is acquired and can change over your life, you are more likely to increase your level of self-efficacy. Genetic and environmental determinants[ edit ] In a Norwegian twin study, the heritability of self-efficacy in adolescents was estimated at 75 percent.

The remaining variance, 25 percent, was due to environmental influences not shared between family members. The shared family environment did not contribute to individual differences in self-efficacy.

One study examined foreign language students' beliefs about learning, goal attainment, and motivation to continue with language study. It was concluded that over-efficaciousness negatively affected student motivation, so that students who believed they were "good at languages" had less motivation to study.


As a predictor, self-efficacy is supposed to facilitate the forming of behavioral intentions, the development of action plans, and the initiation of action. As mediator, self-efficacy can help prevent relapse to unhealthy behavior. Academic contexts[ edit ] Parents' sense of academic efficacy for their child is linked to their children's scholastic achievement.

Results demonstrated that early adolescents highly self-efficient in problem solving and in scholastic performances, and those who reported a higher empathic self-efficacy tended to express a greater resilience than lowly self-efficient ones.
