Psychologist, author of the theory of social learning
The human condition is better improved by altering detrimental circumstances and personal perspectives than by trying to alter personal outlooks, while ignoring the very circumstances that serve to nourish themMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People who are burdened by acute misgivings about their coping capabilities suffer much distress and expend much effort in defensive action . . . they cannot get themselves to do things they find subjectively threatening even though they are objectively safe. They may even shun easily manageable activities because they see them as leading to more threatening events over which they will be unable to exercise adequate controlMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Self-belief does not necessarily ensure success, but self-disbelief assuredly spawns failure.More Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Children] receive direct instruction from time to time about the appropriateness of various social comparisonsMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
