Abstract

The authors reply to commentaries on their target article “Self-Regulation: Reminders and Suggestions from Personality Science”. Substantial consensus is evident across the target article and multiple commentaries. The message conveyed is that personality science and the study of self-regulation are mutually complementary and that applied efforts to enhance people's self-regulatory capacities can be enhanced via study of the intra-individual architecture of social-cognitive and affective personality systems.
