Self-efficacy theory, internal and external criticism evaluation process.

In order to provide a clearer understanding of this topic, let me begin by explaining the theory of “Self-efficacy. According to Bandura (1977), efficacy beliefs play a significant role in predicting changes in human behavior. Efficacy beliefs refer to an individual’s inner beliefs about their ability to successfully perform the required behavior to attain a specific outcome. These beliefs only influence behavior when an individual has confidence. Therefore, efficacy beliefs are crucial in altering an individual’s behavior. Self-efficacy refers to the belief in one’s ability to make decisions and execute actions to achieve a desired outcome. It involves several key aspects, such as assessing one’s own performance measures, considering possible outcomes before taking action, learning from the experiences of others through observation, receiving constructive feedback and coaching, and being aware of one’s emotional state while performing a task.

Badura’s postulate tells us, as well, that individuals have the freedom and ability to choose and pursue a course of action. They do this by assessing their own values, moral standards, motivators, and feedback (positive and negative) against societal norms. This process allows individuals to improve their knowledge, skills and overcome any challenges they may face. It also helps them to plan and choose the most beneficial and desirable course of action while avoiding undesired outcomes. However, societal pressure and scrutiny, along with the fear of punishment for nonconforming behavior, can have an impact on an individual’s behavior. Therefore, a person’s level of self-efficacy can influence their coping, motivation, performance, and persistence to achieve their desired course of action. Higher levels of self-efficacy are associated with increased attributes, while lower levels are associated with decreased attributes. (Kim & Sohn, 2019)
