"Positive self-affirmations is not a good way to promote self-esteem but rather might causes one to be narcissistic."
Why is it a myth?
Not one of the best ways
Limited and restricted by one's
Makes those with low self-esteem
Can lead to narcissism
to admire yourself
Josh was showing off again -_-
He keeps thinking he is
better than other kids and
that he is so handsome asking
strangers to confirm it. Someone help!
“participants with relatively low self-esteem
experienced adverse effects from
self-affirmation…. self-affirmed participants
with low self-esteem showed higher
psychological discomfort, higher personal
risk discounting, and lower message
acceptance than unaffirmed participants.”
"The current research demonstrates that
self-affirmation can also deflate
motivation and performance, a pattern
consistent with goal disengagement."
