Title

Introspectiveness, Psychosocial Resources, and Depression.

Abstract

What conditions moderate the association between introspectiveness and mental health? This research tests the hypotheses that self-esteem, mastery, and social support moderate the association between introspectiveness and depression. Based on a community sample of 850 respondents, results show that introspectiveness and depression are more positive under the conditions of low esteem, mastery, and support. Results are interpreted in light of theories of the self-concept, personality dispositions, and mental health.
