In the study, Turban and Serge da Motta Veiga, found that people who had a strong learning goal orientation (LGO) reacted to failures by putting more intensity into the search process compared to job seekers who had a low LGO. Additionally, when the process was going well, individuals with a high LGO maintained or slightly increased their intensity, while those who had a low LGO decreased their intensity.

Turban and da Motta Veiga also mentioned that it's not just about genetics. People with a low LGO can learn techniques or behaviors to help them improve their LGO so they handle stress and failures better.

The study is published in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.
