Example text

This conceptualization does not differentiate systematically between intentional and unintentional or subpersonal processes; extending the notion of control to secondary cognitive processes of the mentioned type tends to conflate these processes with purposefully chosen strategies of coping. This leads to the paradoxical implications mentioned above. It also blurs the important difference between intentional actions that aim at changing "the world" (or even "the self") and nonintentional processes through which the goals, beliefs, or self-definitions which feed into intentional action, are changed.

As far as cognitive biases occur during problem-focused action, they will tend to be consistent with, rather than undermine, the intention to act: There is experimental evidence, for example, that problems become even more aversive (or goals more attractive) when effective goal pursuit is hampered or becomes more difficult (Wortman & Brehm, 1975), and that individuals tend to overestimate their control potentials when they are in an "implemental mind set" (Gollwitzer, 1990; Gollwitzer & Kinney, 1989).
