Example text

Individuals' goals may be unclear as they begin interactions or goals may transmute in the course of interactions, which raises goal uncertainty levels. Also, in social interaction situations it is not only one's own goals that count, it is the goals of one's interaction partners that are critical. From the perspective of the individual interactant, partners' goals generally must be inferred. Consequently, there is always room for uncertainty with regard to the intentions of one's interaction partner, which makes the generation of optimal messages for achieving one's goals more difficult.

This finding suggests the broader proposition that as the magnitude of potential negative consequences of goal-failure increases, the likelihood that planners will include more contingent actions in their plans also increases. This theoretical proposition notwithstanding, Hall (1982) has suggested that when individuals plan large-scale public projects, they focus on those actions that are likely to bring about the desired goal state. While this bias is understandable, it may lead to the unrealistic view that goal failure is impossible if the plan, as conceived, is followed.
