Abstract  Intentional self-regulations are contextualized actions that are actively aimed towards harmonizing demands and resources in the context with personal goals in order to attain better functioning and to enhance self-development. The concept of intentional self-regulation is based on SOC (selection, optimization and compensation) theory. The process of intentional self-regulation emerges dramatically in adolescence; the level of intentional self-regulation could predict positive developmental outcomes, by interacting with contextual factors and other proximal process. Future studies should emphasize domain-specific measurement of intentional self-regulation, the process paradigm, and the promotion of intentional self-regulation.
