We have come to the examination of stress indirectly, via an interest in consciousness, or rather a specific aspect of consciousness. Our point of view is that of personality-social psychology, and the major focus of our interest is the role that attentional processes play in the self-regulation of behavior. That phrase “self-regulation of behavior” sounds somewhat grandiose and all-encompassing. And in fact, standing back and looking at what we have been trying to say, we may have been a bit grandiose in our assertions. Grandiose or not, however, it seems to us that those assertions enjoy a substantial degree of empirical support.
