Abstract

Five studies examined the impact of self-regulatory resources on defensive information processing, or the tendency to deny, distort, or avoid self-Threatening (but informative) information. People low in trait and state self-regulatory capacities demonstrated more defensive processing. For participants with an active self-improvement motive, reduced self-regulatory resources did not affect defensive processing.
