**KIM WOODS** question 7 | StudyDaddy.com

Please reply to the highlighted questions. 

Hi Class,

After reading the brief autobiographical discussion about Jim, and the issues that he raised in terms of his inability to have a satisfying relationship, and his feelings about being a “failure since high school,” the first theory area that came to mind for me was that of social-cognitive.   As the text discusses in chapter 1, the social cognitive perspective looks at how people develop based on reciprocal interactions and the role of self-regulation (Cervone & Pervin, 2013).  As a social psychologist, this area is obviously of great interest to me, and I can see how Jim would fall into this perspective. 

For me, I can see how Jim is constantly looking at his successes and failures, and is judging his behavior and actions based on what has happened.  I am attaching a link to an article by Bandura that I think does a great job of talking about the role of self-regulation in terms of social cognitive theory: http://www.uky.edu/~eushe2/BanduraPubs/Bandura1991OBHDP.pdf

After reading the article and thinking about Jim in terms of this perspective, what comments do you all have?  How do you see the role of self-regulation potentially playing a role in terms of his behavior and actions?
