“I” Seek Autonomy, “We” Rely on Each
Self-Construal and Regulatory
Focus as Determinants of Autonomy and Dependency-Oriented Help-Seeking
There are two typical approaches to requesting help: autonomy-oriented help-seeking (asking in order to learn how to fix a problem) versus dependency-oriented help-seeking (asking a helper to fix it). This article presents three studies demonstrating the systematic impact of a person’s chronic or activated self-construal (interdependent vs. independent) that operates through activated regulatory focus (prevention vs. promotion) on these two help-seeking styles.
Dispositional differences in seeking autonomy- or dependency-oriented
Conceptual development and scale validation
This paper presents integrated sets of studies testing whether stable personal tendencies in help-seeking behavior: autonomy-oriented (asking for help to learn how to fix a problem) versus dependency-oriented (asking
someone else to fix it) could be established and reliably assessed. We report on the reliability and validation of
a new self-report, Likert-scaled measurement of autonomous and dependent help-seeking styles.
