Albert Bandura

Psychologist, author of the theory of social learning
Indeed there are many competent people who are plagued by a sense of inefficacy, and many less competent ones who remain unperturbed by impending threats because they are self-assured of their coping capabilitiesMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As a general rule, moderate levels of arousal facilitate deployment of skills, whereas high arousal disrupts it. This is especially true of complex activities requiring intricate organization of behaviorMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Perceived self-efficacy also shapes causal thinking. In seeking solutions to difficult problems, those who perceived themselves as highly efficacious are inclined to attribute their failures to insufficient effort, whereas those of comparable skills but lower perceived self-efficacy ascribe their failures to deficient abilityMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you look at our theories of social pathology and then at the dismal conditions in which children grow up in our ghettos, you would predict that all of them would be on drugs or psychological basket cases. Yet if you use criteria like gainful employment, forming partnerships and life without crime, you will find that most of those kids make it.More Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People who are insecure about themselves will avoid social comparisons that are potentially threatening to their self-esteemMore Albert Bandura quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
