In the case where attention is withdrawn, we tend to refer back to highly practiced traits available in the given moment. This study provides further evidence that affective distractors can be mediated with attentional change in inducing desirable response. Furthermore, distractors can lead to more superficial forms of social perception. They concluded attention may have a more significant role than emotion, such as threat, in moderating perceptions of the self. They further stated that self-presentation under emotional arousal is short lived, once attention is fully recovered, a more controlled cognitive processes takes over, and the heightened tendency to represent the self in positive light diminishes.
People who are feeling anxious often exhibit some physical symptoms that are easy for a person to identify, while others are harder to recognize visually. For example a person may feel restless, have a choking feeling, increased heartrate, chest pain, nausea, dizziness, hot flashes or chills, and numbness which people are unable to notice unless they the person with these symptoms tells them what is happening.

Cognitive processes is divided into unconscious, such as projection or denial, and conscious cognitive processes, such as self-blame, other-blame, rumination and catastrophizing.

An individual’s coping style is dependent on a number of interacting factors, including problem-solving skills, social skills, social support, health and energy, beliefs, material resources, temperament, developmental level, and familial coping patterns.
The fundamental component of the ingratiation technique is the level of likeability the target regards towards persuader. Through flattery or kindness, one can ingratiate themselves to their persuasive target before making the persuasive attempt, making the target more likely to change their attitude (Smith, Pruitt and Carnevale, 1982page283textbookpage120/130AAC). Through this process it is possible to activate particular heuristics such as 'I agree with people I like'(page120chaiken et al.,ithinkAAC).
