People carry a heavier burden from rejection when they view it as revealing something about “who they really are” as a person, new Stanford research shows.

The research, published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, examines the link between rejection and a person’s sense of self. Carol Dweck, a professor of psychology, co-authored the paper along with psychology doctoral student Lauren Howe, who was the lead author.
