A study by Wiekens and Stapel (2010) highlights the existence of individualistic and social standards of self-regulation associated with a heightened level of self-awareness or self-consciousness. This study aimed to replicate one of the original studies and to introduce a new individualistic standard expressing perseverance in effort. A total of 247 students completed a questionnaire measuring these different standards and private and public self-consciousness. The results confirmed the relevance of the typology of standards of self-regulation introduced by Wiekens and Stapel. They also confirmed that a standard of perseverance in effort is associated with private self-consciousness.
