This article explores the links between implicit self-esteem and the automatic self (D. L. Paulhus, 1993). Across 4 studies, name letter evaluations were positively biased, confirming that implicit self-esteem is generally positive (A. G. Greenwald & M. R. Banaji, 1995). Study 1 found that this name letter bias was stable over a 4-week period. Study 2 found that positive bias for name letters and positive bias for birth date numbers were correlated and that both biases became inhibited when… Expand
Attitude Accessibility as a Moderator of Implicit and Explicit Self-esteem Correspondence
A key question in the self-esteem literature involves the conditions under which implicit and explicit self-esteem correspond. The current investigation adds to this literature by using a novelExpand

Abstract Recently, dual models of social cognition have distinguished the implicit (affective) and the explicit (propositional) levels of self-esteem. Many studies have found that implicit andExpand
Implicit self-esteem: nature, measurement, and a new way forward.
TLDR
The construct validity of the 2 most common measures of implicit self-esteem, the Implicit Association Test (IAT) and Name-Letter Test (NLT) are evaluated and it is concluded that both tests are impoverished measures of self- esteem that are better understood as measures of either generalized implicit affect or implicit egotism.

TLDR
It was shown that conditioning enhanced self-esteem to such an extent that it made participants insensitive to negative intelligence feedback and various implications are discussed. Expand
Intuition and the correspondence between implicit and explicit self-esteem.
TLDR
The correspondence between implicit and explicitSelf-esteem among individuals who view their intuition as valid may suggest that these individuals incorporate implicit self-esteem into their explicit self-views. Expand

Reporting Tendencies Underlie Discrepancies Between Implicit and Explicit Measures of Self-Esteem
TLDR
Although researchers often argue that implicitly measured self-esteem is unconscious, evidence is provided that it is not, and that discrepancies between implicit and explicit measures of self- esteem are the result of reporting tendencies. Expand
