Self-monitoring reading of implicit contents and moral of self


  • Di Giovanni Parisio
  • Bianchi Adele
  • Di Giovanni Eugenio


The research concerns self-monitoring psychological processes and aims to verify two hypothesises: that there is difference in the theories on Self in HSM and LSM, and that the HSMs are more able implicit readers than the LSMs. The 18 item SMS was administered to 86 people, who had also undergone the implicit reading test. HSM and LSM were then thoroughly studied with further implicit reading trials and by means of dilemmas intended to explore their implicit theories of self. The HSMs read more implicits, in a livelier way, and with less fatigue. The dilemmas show differences in the structure of the self and above all in the moral conviction of self.
