RESEARCH STATEMENT

 

In my research, I seek to examine both within- and between-culture differences in how people perceive the self and its consequences for achievement motivation, performance, mental health, self-regulation, and moral behavior, particularly based on the cultural logics and contexts of face and dignity cultures. The three major questions I address in my research are: (1) What are the different bases to the individual differences in self-understanding in European American and East Asian contexts (a first- vs. third-person perspective in dignity and face cultures), and what are the implications of these cultural and individual differences for the construction of the self as a competent, moral, successful person?, (2) Do unrealistic beliefs about the self and the cultural practices that support these beliefs (e.g., providing unrealistically positive or negative performance feedback) benefit or harm intellectual performance and motivation and mental health and well-being?, and (3) Do East Asians need positive self-regard less; and if not, how do East Asians express their positive self?
