This scale refers to post-intentional self-regulation when individuals are in the phase of goal-pursuit, and face difficulties in maintaining their action. In such a maintenance situation it is required to focus attention on the task at hand and to keep a favorable emotional balance. Thus, attention-regulation and emotion-regulation are reflected in these scale items. In a sample of N = 442 Germans the scale has obtained an internal consistency of Cronbach's alpha = .76. In the other language versions the reliability is higher. In a sample of N = 239 Germans the scale yielded a retest stability of .62 after six weeks. There were associations found with general self-efficacy beliefs (r = .57), and with proactive coping (r = .55).
