Abstract

One aspect of the self-serving bias, known as the above-average effect, states that people rate themselves in areas of ability or personality traits higher than what is probably more accurate. In wondering whether the above-average effect can be manipulated to produce more accurate depictions of the self, research has supported perceived evaluation of responses, a participant’s region and certain personality types can all influence the bias.
