The effects of self-efficacy on pro-environmental intentions

Kerrie Payne

Abstract


The effect of self-efficacy on pro-environmental intentions was studied in thirty five individuals. Each participant was required to watch a fear-inducing global warming video and complete three separate questionnaires to monitor their emotion response, felt-responsibility and level of pro-environmental intention. There was very little difference presented between the self-efficacy condition and the control group, suggesting that self-efficacy had little effect on the level of pro-environmental intentions recorded. However there was a significant level of F(1,30) = 7.71, p=.009, discovered between the level of reported pro-environmental intention presented between Time one and Time two for the control group, suggesting that the lack of self-efficacy decreased their lasting pro-environmental intentions.
