We investigated relationships between implicit self-theories and guilt- and shame-proneness. We hypothesized that holding a more "fixed" view of self (entity theory) would be associated with shame, whereas a more "malleable" view of self (incremental theory) would be associated with guilt. Results supported predictions for guilt and shame action tendencies, but not attributions.
