Title:

Fragile Self-Esteem (joint with Koszegi and George Loewenstein)

Abstract:

We develop a model in which a person’s self-esteem is determined by sampling from her store of ego-relevant memories in a fashion that in turn depends on her self-esteem. This feedback mechanism can create multiple “self-esteem personal equilibria,” making self-esteem fragile — subject to swings that are out of proportion to the objective evidentiary value of new information. Self-esteem is especially likely to be fragile, as well as unrealistic in either the positive or the negative direction, if self-esteem is an important ingredient of overall utility. We show that fragile self-esteem has diverse consequences, such as producing a negative relationship between effort and incentives, and various forms of information-avoidance, with consequences for domains such as education and job search.
