This paper reviews the articles "Hypo-Egoic Self-Regulation: Exercising Self-Control by Diminishing the Influence of the Self" by M. Leary, C. Adams and E. Tate and "Personality and Self-Regulation: Trait and Information-Processing Perspectives" by Rick Hoyle. It discusses how Hoyle's analysis captures the importance of self-regulation in today's society and, in particular, how people perceived and interpreted this concept. The paper then attempts to show how this popular belief about self-regulation allows researchers on self-control/self-regulation to prove whether this interpretation and perspective is indeed more accurate in depicting the nature of these concepts. In comparison, the paper looks at how Leary et. al.'s new discovery about the nature of self-regulation is illustrated through the hypo-egoic state concept.
