Abstract

The Cognitive Failures Questionnaire and the Self-Consciousness Scale were administered to a sample of undergraduate students. The Private Self-Consciousness and Social Anxiety subscales were significantly correlated with CFQ, suggesting that dispositional self-focused attention may be one underlying cause of cognitive failure. Similarities in the relation between CFQ, SCS and task performance are discussed.
