The additional judgments are identified in Table 1 as significance for self (J4A), relevant self-efficacy (J4B), and novelty or familiarity (J4C).
In respect to personal significance (J4A), research with student samples has shown that associations between well-being and progress in personal projects (Emmons, 1986) or towards goals (Brunstein, 1993; Sheldon & Houser-Marko, 2001) are stronger when those projects or goals are judged to be personally more salient.
These are expected to encourage the activation of conceptually linked judgment processes, in that greater salience of a stimulus (A4 in Table 2) necessarily raises issues of personal significance (J4A), and stimulus novelty (A5) directs attention to that judgment standard itself (J4C).
Table 2 also proposes that employees with greater self-esteem are less likely to focus on the presence or absence of potential threat (J4A; since high serf-esteem includes a relatively lower concern about potential dangers to the self), and that depression (disposition B8) operates similarly to low self-esteem in respect to J1 and J2B.
In addition, more neurotic Individuals (with an enhanced anxiety about themselves) are thought more likely to be affected by variations in perceived significance for self (J4A).
