For this study, the self-beliefs examined were self-construal and NMRE.
Based on the above research, three hypotheses were investigated: (1) Social anxiety will predict assertiveness; however, NMRE will moderate this relation.
Participants completed four measures that assessed the variables of interest: social anxiety, assertiveness, self-construal, and NMRE. A demographic sheet gathered information on race/ethnicity, gender, age, place of birth, first language, and where the participants' parents were born.
Total scores for the NMR range from 30 to 150, with higher scores indicating higher levels of NMRE. Coefficient alphas ranging from .86 to .92 were reported.
Social anxiety was negatively correlated with NMRE (r = -.49), with independent self-construal (r = -.40), and with assertiveness (r = -.51).
Hypothesis 1 stated that social anxiety would predict assertiveness, but that NMRE would moderate this relation.
(2012) had reported a negative relation between NMRE and social anxiety, and multiple researchers have reported that NMRE predicted active coping strategies for distress across a variety of contexts (Catanzaro, 1996; Kirsch, Mearns, & Catanzaro, 1990; Mearns, 1991).
Furthermore, though NMRE did not influence the relationship between social anxiety and assertiveness, independent self-construal was a significant predictor of both social anxiety and assertiveness.
Although previous research has not examined the role of independent self-construal or NMRE on assertiveness, the current study provides initial support for a relationship between independent self-construal, social anxiety, and assertiveness.
