duration of self-focused attention
Departmental Bulletin Paper
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among functional and dysfunctional self-focused attention, namely, self-reflection and rumination, and anxiety and depression. A survey was administered to 226 undergraduate students on self-rumination, self-reflection, self-focused attention, anxiety, and depression. The analysis showed that partial correlation between self-rumination and anxiety was significant while controlling for depression, same as self-focused attention and anxiety. Regression analysis revealed that self-focused attention predicted anxiety and depression. Results of this study showed that self-focused attention had a stronger association with anxiety. This study suggested that self-focused attention influences mental health regardless of motives, such as self-rumination and self-reflection. Future analysis needs to examine interventions in characteristics of self-focused attention.
