The original Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale contains 10 items designed to tap into a global sense of self-efficacy, or belief of an individual in his or her ability (e.g., “I can always solve difficult problems if I try hard enough,” and “I can usually handle whatever comes my way.”) The revised version here includes these 10 items and two, which are repeated and reversed to examine acquiescence bias. Response options range from 1, never true, to 7, always true. Higher scores indicate greater generalized self-efficacy.

Experimental conditions are the subsets of an experiment that define the relevant experimental manipulation.


In the Cognitive Atlas, we define a contrast as any function over experimental conditions. The simplest contrast is the indicator value for a specific condition; more complex contrasts include linear or nonlinear functions of the indicator across different experimental conditions.


No indicators have yet been associated.

An indicator is a specific quantitative or qualitative variable that is recorded for analysis. These may include behavioral variables (such as response time, accuracy, or other measures of performance) or physiological variables (including genetics, psychophysiology, or brain imaging data).
