He believed that, this ability wholly depends on other parties and not him. This attribution is stable since he takes it as permanent as longer as he is not in control of what happens.

3)Jonathan manifested camouflaged performance goal orientation since heused the simple tasks with high likelihood of being successful toconceal his weakness.
