In the Personality chapter I have read and learned about perceived self-efficacy The section about this important cognitive factor was very brief but I gained a lot out of it Based on Banduras cognitive theory perceived self-efficacy is ones learned expectations about the possibility of achievement in assured situations Seeing that this is an issue for me I realize that my perceived self-efficacy about numerous things is very low in many cases I have learned that an individuals evident behavior is controlled by their belief that they can successfully carry out a task I think that a significance of having knowledge of perceived self-efficacy is that an individual with knowledge in this area can learn to look for the good in what I would call not so good taskssituations that may be presented to them in the future What I mean by this is that even if an individual may feel that they may continue to get dealt a bad deck of playing cards they continue to play the game of life Sometimes I feel like the odds of good things happening are against me A prime example is this I have put out so many job applications and resumes yet I still havent received a phone call from any of the companies that I applied for I know that I am qualified for many of the positions since I have all of the credentials If I didnt meet the qualifications I wouldnt tell myself otherwise due to my high perceived self-efficacy about working I have come to believe that if anyone continues to see things in such a positive way then they will become a better individual and everything that they wish for will come to them if they truly deserve it In high school I had the most positive stance about everything I had attempted to do My self-efficacy was pretty high at that point and time Now in college things
