Disadvantages of Self-Efficacy
High Self-Efficacy does not guarantee positive outcomes (Weibell, 2011).
Can not base one's self-efficacy for a new task with previous achievements (Positive Practices, 2005).
Anxiety and memories of previous failures can effect one's self-efficacy (Bandura, 1994).
"Rather than high self-efficacy, one might have low self-efficacy following failure or
setbacks that causes them to lose faith in their capabilities and to
develop increased stress and depression" (Bandura, 1994).
