A big part of self-regulation are personal rules. The book defines personal rules as verbal descriptions of contingency that we present to ourselves to influence our behavior. There are different behaviors and terms under personal rules. One is personal process rule which the book defines as goes into detail of the specific process of how to complete tasks. Another term I find difficult is the say-do correspondence. It is the difference in what we say we will do and what actually happens. I know I struggle with this. I say I will clean my room before I go to bed and end up cleaning it days after. Personal rules vary from person to person. Some people care more about their personal space; some people are huggers. These are just some of the terms involving self-regulation in our text.
