The purpose of the present study is to analyze rater’s perceptions of a fictional person that was either engaging in help-seeking or feedback seeking behavior while having a past performance history of either superior, good, or poor. We found that a person who engaged in feedback seeking behavior was rated higher on competence than a person who engaged in help-seeking behavior. Meaning, help-seeking and feedback seeking behaviors are perceived differently. Consistent with previous research a person with a history of high performance was perceived as more confident and competent than a person with a history of average or poor performance.
