The video section discusses self-efficacy, the belief in an individual's ability to perform a specific task. Self-efficacy plays a critical role in determining whether a person is motivated to try a task. Low self-efficacy can be detrimental as it can lead to feelings of inadequacy and prevent successful completion or starting of a task. Self-efficacy is context-dependent and can be improved with practice, learning from others, and recognizing small successes along the way. Developing high self-efficacy can positively impact an individual's learning experiences and problem-solving abilities.

  • 00:00:00 In this section of the video, self-efficacy is defined as the belief in one's ability to succeed in a particular task or subject. When a person has high self-efficacy, they believe they are capable of accomplishing the task and are motivated to engage in it. On the other hand, if a person has low self-efficacy, they may feel that they are not good enough to accomplish the task and are not motivated to start or finish it. Self-efficacy can vary in different contexts and can be influenced by past experiences. Research shows that self-efficacy is an important influence on a person's ability to persist in learning and problem-solving tasks. Increasing self-efficacy can involve tuning into oneself, noticing small successes and learning from others, and giving oneself opportunities to achieve small successes through practice. Self-efficacy can affect a person's behavior every day, including their willingness to learn new tools and how much they feel like they belong in specific fields. The speaker encourages viewers to notice low self-efficacy in themselves or others and to take steps to improve it by recognizing that self-efficacy grows with experience and persistence.
