2/1/16 Interpersonal Goals An interpersonal goal is a state an individual wants to achieve that is linked to another person’s behavior. → Interpersonal goals examples To defend your image To give advice To obtain support To persuade To resolve conflict To maintain relationship → Three types of Interpersonal goals 1. Instrumental Goals ➔ Resources/ favors we try to get from other people ➔ Tangible goal ➔ Most utilized of the three interpersonal goals, in the West ➔ Not as prominent in other parts of the world ➔ Ex: Get help from friend, borrow the car, obtain a raise at work, persuade friend to quit smoking 2. Relational Goals ➔ Preserving or changing the status of your relationship ➔ Ex: make a friend, ask for a date, share an activity, escalate/ terminate a relationship 3. Selfpresentational goals ➔ Tied to identity management ➔ What other people think about you ➔ What you think other people think about you ➔ Facework ➔ Ex: appear intelligent in class, impress boss, be the life of the party, defend against criticism → Five Principles of Interpersonal Goals 1. Interpersonal goals differ in clarity. ➔ Some goals are very clear, some are very broad ➔ Research shows that the clearer a goal is, the more likely the individual is to achieve it 2. Interpersonal goals vary in difficulty ➔ Some goals are just harder to achieve ➔ Ex: borrowing the family car if there is just one car in the family 3. People pursue multiple interpersonal goals at the same time. ➔ Ex: want to start a relationship, want to sound smart 4. Interpersonal goals differ in urgency. ➔ Hierarchy of goals ➔ Triage our goals ➔ Primary and secondary goals ➔ Setting small achievable goals that lead to a much bigger goal 5. Interpersonal goals prompt plans for action. ➔ How can I go about achieving this goal ➔ Implementing the goals ➔ Goals naturally push us to action
