Languages of publication
The purpose of two presented studies was to examine how intention implementation and individual differences in processing of goals manner and action control efficiency influence subjective evaluation of progress in “personal projects” realization (Little, 1980). Assumed that intention implementation could compensate determined by personality difficulties in processing of goals manner and low action control efficiency. The basis for the constructing independent variables were: Peter. M. Gollwitzer’s (1996) action phase theory, model of personality created by Tadeusz Madrzycki (2002) and the strength of volition theory by Julius Kuhl (1996). The results of study 1 (N = 91) demonstrated that intention implementation resulted in the increased subjective evaluation of “personal projects” progress by participants displaying low level of “goal orientation”. Obtained in study 2 (N = 85) results confirmed positive effect of implemented intention on subjective evaluation of progress in goal attaining. State -oriented participants had higher indexes of subjective evaluation of progress after having intention implementation instruction applied. This result was interpreted as confirming compensating effect of intention implementation on action control mechanisms efficiency. Action oriented participants had the same indexes of subjective evaluation of progress regardless of intention implementation.
