Former president of the American Psychological Association, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the world's leading researcher on positive psychology, who developed this evaluation model, states the following …
“People will be more inclined to take on a task if they believe they can succeed. People generally avoid tasks where their self efficacy is low, but will engage in tasks where their self efficacy is high.
People with a self-efficacy significantly beyond their actual ability often overestimate their ability to complete tasks, which can lead to difficulties.
On the other hand, people with a self-efficacy significantly lower than their ability are unlikely to grow and expand their skills. Research shows that the ‘optimum’ level of self-efficacy is a little above ability, which encourages people to tackle challenging tasks and gain valuable experience.”
Answer the following questions on a scale of 1 to 10 for each of these questions:
(1 is low, 10 is high)
90-100 = High Self Efficacy 70-80 = Marginal Self Efficacy < 80 = Suggests the person would be well advised to learn a higher level of self-efficacy before buying a franchise
