Positive Affirmations: Can They Help You Overcome the Odds Against You?

By Kevin Hogan

Affirmations Act as a Buffer

In the university press release, we found out that when students competed against a lower-status group, those who completed self or group affirmations finished less of the task than those who did no affirmations.

Are Affirmations Helpful? Writing the affirmations made the students feel like they were good members of their group, or that their group itself was good, Lount said. Because they no longer felt threatened, they didn’t feel they had to work as hard to prove themselves when competing against the lower-ranked team.

“The affirmations act as a buffer against threat,” Lount said.

Meanwhile, students in this study who competed against higher-ranked teams showed no difference in how much of the task they completed, regardless of whether they wrote affirmations or not.

“Comparisons with lower-status groups pose a significant and unique threat,” he said.

The fascinating study that was reported in the Journal of Experimental Psychology once again revealed that "positive affirmations" backfire.

What Do You Have to Lose?

And it seems to be telling you that if you want your team to win or perform better...if you want to do better, it might be wise to consider what you have to lose as far as status.

Are affirmations always a disaster?

No, there is a proven way to use Self Affirmation in certain specific situations that can really pay off.

You'll find out about when to use and absolutely when not to use a "Self Affirmation" next time.
