What Is Ego Depletion? Toward a Mechanistic Revision of the Resource Model of Self-Control
Though the process model of depletion may sacrifice the elegance of the resource metaphor, it paints a more precise picture of ego depletion and suggests several nuanced predictions for future research.
A Multilab Preregistered Replication of the Ego-Depletion Effect
The size of the ego-depletion effect was small with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) that encompassed zero (d = 0.04, 95% CI [−0.07, 0.15]), and implications of the findings for the psyche depletion effect and the resource depletion model of self-control are discussed.
A Threatening Intellectual Environment: Why Females Are Susceptible to Experiencing Problem-Solving Deficits in the Presence of Males
Investigation showed that females' deficits were proportional to the number of males in their group, and even females who were placed in a mixed-sex majority condition experienced moderate but significant deficits.
Stereotype threat and executive resource depletion: examining the influence of emotion regulation.
Across 4 experiments, converging evidence is provided that targets of stereotype threat spontaneously attempt to control their expression of anxiety and that such emotion regulation depletes executive resources needed to perform well on tests of cognitive ability.
Meditation, mindfulness and executive control: the importance of emotional acceptance and brain-based performance monitoring.
Mediation pathway models revealed that meditation practice relates to greater executive control and that this effect can be accounted for by heightened emotional acceptance, and to a lesser extent, increased brain-based performance monitoring.
The Five “A”s of Meaning Maintenance: Finding Meaning in the Theories of Sense-Making
Across eras and literatures, multiple theories have converged on a broad psychological phenomenon: the common compensation behaviors that follow from violations of our committed understandings. The
Stereotype threat spillover: how coping with threats to social identity affects aggression, eating, decision making, and attention.
The results indicate that stereotype threat can spill over and impact self-control in a diverse array of nonstereotyped domains and reveal the potency of stereotype threat and that its negative consequences might extend further than was previously thought.
