Abstract

Communion is evaluated more positively and people are more concerned if
their communion is discredited, but their self-esteem is dominated by
agency. For reconciling these results we present an extended Dual
Perspective Model that distinguishes the actor-self perspective
(self-as-identity) and the observer-self perspective
(self-as-reputation) and the facets of agency (assertiveness,
competence) and communion (warmth, morality). Self-as-identity is
expected to be more related to agency, particularly assertiveness,
whereas self-as-reputation is expected to be more related to communion,
particularly morality. As predicted, participants asked to remember
identity- (reputation-) threatening situations listed mainly
assertiveness and competence situations (morality situations; Study 1).
Identity (reputation) threat was highest after negative agency,
especially assertiveness (communion, especially morality) information
(Studies 2, 3; 4 with different methodology).
