ABSTRACT: Despite the popularity of the Ancient Greek maxim “know thyself,” the importance of self-insight for adjustment remains unclear. Here we examine four perspectives about how abilities and self-views about these abilities relate to adjustment for the domains of cognitive and emotional abilities. We will administer tests of cognitive and emotional abilities and assess self-views about these abilities. Participants will then complete daily diaries for a week to report multiple indicators of adjustment. We will analyze data using polynomial regression and response surface analysis. The results will illuminate the merits of self-insight and the effects of giving employees and students feedback about their cognitive and emotional abilities in organizations and in schools.
