Abstract: In their target article, Tracy and Robins (this issue) offer a far-reaching and generative theory of self-conscious emotion. The central assertion is that the self-conscious emotions differ from other well-studied emotions, such as fear or anger, and their understanding requires concepts from the self literature. The focus of this commentary is to sharpen the discussion regarding the unique facets of the self-conscious emotions, in terms of how they differ from other emotions and from one another. The commentary concludes by positing self-regulatory function as the most unique characteristic of self-conscious emotion.
