The need to feel effective as an important parameter in interpersonal interactions

The need to feel effective as an important determinate of one’s self-image was studied and an attempt made to demonstrate that the appropriate affective state is influenced by manipulating the degree of satisfaction of the need to feel effective. It was hypothesized that with adequate stimuli for feeling interpersonal effectiveness, a person will experience positive affect; without adequate stimuli for feeling interpersonal effectiveness, a person will experience negative affect; and in the absence of stimuli specific to feeling effective, a person normally in control of effectiveness will experience more positive affect than either a person who feels chronic helplessness or one who feels excessive control.
