Define the Construct
• The concept of agency pertains to people who characteristically seek
autonomy; they seek to master and assimilate the environment by
striving for individuality and superiority. Highly agentic people
seek self-protection, self-assertion, and self-expansion, and more
generally, are competitive, and achievement-oriented. They identify
and set goals and do what it takes to achieve them. Interpersonally,
they seek success by competing, and not cooperating, with others.
They can be warm and friendly, but this behavior is often used to
achieve goals that are not interpersonally oriented. They strive for
power over others. When the concept is viewed as a personality
dimension, the characteristics associated with the positive pole, i.e.
power, mastery, and assertion, can be contrasted with the
characteristics associated with the negative pole, i.e. passivity,
weakness, failure, and submission.
