What is self-efficacy? How does this affect your educational goals and career goals? What is the relationship between self-efficacy and self-esteem?
Perceived self-efficacy is defined as people's beliefs about their capabilities to produce designated levels of performance that exercise influence over events that affect their lives. [ Self-efficacy beliefs determine how people feel, think, motivate themselves and behave. Such beliefs produce these diverse effects through four major processes. They include cognitive, motivational, affective
and selection processes. A strong sense of efficacy enhances human accomplishment and personal well-being in many ways. People with high assurance in their capabilities approach difficult tasks as challenges to be mastered rather than as threats to be avoided. Such an efficacious outlook fosters intrinsic interest and deep engrossment in activities. They set themselves challenging goals and maintain strong commitment to them. They heighten and sustain their efforts in the face of failure. They quickly recover their sense of efficacy after failures or setbacks. They attribute failure to insufficient effort or deficient knowledge and skills which are acquirable. They approach threatening situations with assurance that they can exercise control over them. Such an efficacious outlook produces personal accomplishments, reduces stress and lowers vulnerability to depression. In contrast, people who doubt their capabilities shy away from difficult tasks which they view as personal threats. They have low aspirations and weak commitment to the goals they choose to pursue. When faced with difficult tasks, they dwell on their personal deficiencies, on the obstacles they will encounter, and all kinds of adverse outcomes rather than concentrate on how to perform successfully. They slacken their efforts and give up quickly in the face of difficulties. They are slow to recover their sense of efficacy following failure or setbacks. Because they view insufficient performance as deficient aptitude it does not require much failure for them to lose faith in their capabilities. They fall easy victim to stress and depression. I. Sources of Self-Efficacy People's beliefs about their efficacy can be developed by four main sources of influence. ]

Weegy: Three sources of information include primary sources, secondary sources, and tertiary sources.

Some sources that I would use would be the library, the internet, and maybe talking to someone who would know a little more on this subject than me, like a police officer. I would say that the messages in the videos are valid. Like it is stated, there is a chance the first time a person uses drugs it can kill them, but if it doesn't the first time, it will eventually happen on another time. These messages has a lot of truth to them. People on drugs are very different from a person who is not on ...
Weegy: Your statement is true. Once a person tried it and they think that it is okay then they will tend to try it again that leads to wrong doing. [ This mostly happen to those person who are not aware of the pros and cons of drugs or they might be belong from a family where they don't get much attention. ] (More)
