Aligning Actions

Aligning actions is an impression management strategy in which one makes questionable behavior acceptable via excuses. It is a method of self - representation in which an individual makes their actions and behaviors appear positive, rational, and understandable. An example would be explaining a work failure as a result of sickness instead of slacking off.
