Self-Control Demands: From Basic Research to Job-Related Applications.
Abstract. Recent theoretical developments and findings in basic research suggest self-control demands (SCDs) to be a unique job stressor. A series of studies in different work settings have corroborated this view. The results show that different forms of SCDs (impulse control, resisting distractions, overcoming inner resistances) (a) contribute significant portions of unique variance to the...read more ❯
Lagged mediator effects of self-control demands onpsychological strain and absenteeism.
In awareness of the increasing relevance of self-control for goal achievement and its adverse effects on psychological strain in different occupational contexts, we tested lagged mediational effects of self-control demands (SCDs) on emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, anxiety, and sum of days absent. The present analyses draw on two German longitudinal samples (NTOTAL = 399) and a...read more ❯
Costs of simultaneous coping with emotional dissonance and self-control demands at work: Results from two German samples.
In the present study, we examine interactive effects of emotional dissonance (ED) and self-control demands (SCDs; impulse control, resisting distractions, and overcoming inner resistances) on emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, depressive symptoms, and absenteeism. We derived the prediction of interactive effects from the well-founded theoretical argument that both sources of work stress...read more ❯
Sleep quality and self-control capacity as protective resources in the daily emotional labor process
Daily emotional labor can impair psychological well-being, especially when emotions have to be displayed that are not truly felt. To explain these deleterious effects of emotional labor, scholars have theorized that emotional labor can put high demands on self-control and diminishes limited regulatory resources. On the basis of this notion, we examined 2 moderators of the daily emotional labor...read more ❯
