Chapter 135, 136, & 137: Effort Justification

Happy Sunday!

Effort Justification: The finding that when people suffer or work hard or make sacrifices, they will try to convince themselves that is it worthwhile.

I came across this definition while taking notes for my Social Psychology class, and it caught my attention. I’ve always been interested in learning what makes people tick, what motivates their actions and thoughts. So this definition interests me in more ways than one. It’s a definition for so many actions that I’ve seen people do, and now I know why some of them have acted in a specific manner because of it. It’s just interesting to see if/how this applies to other people, and maybe even myself. It’s just another clue into the world of learning how people tick. Hope you all have great week!
