This paper examines the roles of performance expectations, feedback context, and self-esteem in feedback inquiry. Seventy-eight subjects participated in a stock market simulation. Results showed that performance expectations and the public context in which the subjects sought feedback significantly influenced the frequency of feedback inquiry. However, these effects depended on type of feedback (personal performance vs social comparison) being requested and additionally were influenced by self-esteem of the feedback seeker.
