For those who achieved their goal, the ‘past positive’ and ‘future’ TPs were found to positively predict GSE, whereas ‘present fatalism’ negatively predicted GSE. Study 2 explored whether accessing time related information that may not normally be used to determine GSE via a writing intervention can promote both near and distant-future goal achievement. Participants (N = 139) were randomly assigned to one of four writing conditions and results reveal that GSE towards goal achievement can increase with a focus on both a ‘positive past’ with a projective positive ‘future’ TP.
