Ego-involvement is a concept in psychology that refers to the degree to which a person perceives a task or an issue as relevant to their Self-esteem. It is assumed that Ego-involvement influences the strength of one’s attitude towards the task or the issue. For example, a person who is highly Ego-involved in their political beliefs may have stronger and more resistant attitudes than someone who is less Ego-involved. Ego-involvement can also affect how people process information and respond to persuasion attempts.
