Abstract:The purpose of this study was to examine individuals' sense of competence contained in their sense of coherence (SOC). There are two aspects of competence: self-esteem (SE) and assumed-competence (AC). Self-esteem relates to essential aspects rooted in personal experiences, while assumed-competence pertains to illusory aspects not rooted in personal experiences but based on undervaluing others. Data of 183 college students were analyzed. Results indicated a positive correlation between SOC and SE, and a negative correlation between SOC and AC. Thus, sense of competence contained in SOC may not be based on illusory aspects and on undervaluing others.

Abstract:College students practiced group-based mindfulness meditation training every day for two weeks. Fifteen students each in the training and control groups completed a questionnaire on stress responses four times (before training, one week after training began, and just after and two weeks after training ended). The trained students also answered a decentering measure at the same four times and evaluated their mood states before and after everyday meditation. Both the trained students and the controls reported lower depression two weeks after the training ended. The trained students' mood states also changed to being pleasant after the daily meditation.
