  • How meaningful is meaning-making'
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Marek S. Kopacz, Jennifer Lockman, Jaimie Lusk, Craig J. Bryan, Crystal L. Park, Susan C. Sheu, William C. GibsonAbstractThe aim of this paper is to develop understandings of how meaning-making processes apply to moral injury in military populations. Moral injury is an emerging clinical construct recognized as a source of mental health morbidity. Meaning-making processes, especially following highly stressful events, have far-reaching applicability to ensuring favorable mental health outcomes. This paper examines meaning-making processes in the context of moral injury: meaning and morality in times of war, morally injurious experiences, moral emotions and cognitions, the importance of meaning-making in general mental health, and how meaning-making plays into the expressions and/or symptoms of MI. We apply these understandings in a case vignette of a Veteran affected by moral injury. We end by offering suggestions on how meaning-making can be applied in the development of clinical support strategies in cases of moral injury.
       
  • Tracking familiarity, recognition, and liking increases with repeated
           exposures to Nontonal Music: Revisiting MEE-Revisited
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Esra Mungan, Melisa Akan, Mustafa Taha BilgeAbstractPrevious studies demonstrated mere exposure effects (MEE) with musical tunes (e.g., Halpern & Müllensiefen, 2008; Peretz et al., 1998). Our goal was to investigate the effects of repeated exposures on processing fluency, recognition performance, and liking ratings for unfamiliar tonal and nontonal tunes, with type of tune being manipulated between-participants. Tunes were presented either 1, 3 or 6 times and processed either with a familiarity rating or counting long notes orienting task. We found that participants' familiarity ratings increased across repeated exposures for both types of tunes. Likewise, recognition performance for both unfamiliar and nontonal tunes improved with repeated exposures. The increase in recognition sensitivity for nontonal tunes was steady across six repetitions whereas for unfamiliar tonal tunes the increase decelerated after three repetitions. Liking ratings, too, increased with repeated exposures for both types of tunes and in comparable ways. Liking ratings were also higher for hits than misses and correlated positively with recognition confidence ratings. Orienting tasks did not have an effect on liking or recognition. Findings are discussed with reference to the processing fluency account (Reber, Schwarz, & Winkielman, 2004), dual process account (Mandler, 1980) and the fluency misattribution model (Bornstein & D'Agostino, 1992).
       
  • The misleading Dodo Bird verdict. How much of the outcome variance is
           explained by common and specific factors'
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Giulio de Felice, Alessandro Giuliani, Sibel Halfon, Silvia Andreassi, Giulia Paoloni, Franco F. OrsucciAbstractThe literature on psychotherapy research makes use of the so-called "Dodo Bird Verdict" to show that therapeutic change owes more to common factors than to specific techniques. According to the bulk of the empirical literature, common factors explain 30–70% of therapy outcome variance, while specific factors account for between 5% and 15%. This formulation is based on the assumption that common and specific factors are independent of each other. The present study uses a systematic review of the literature to empirically demonstrate that common and specific factors of change are actually correlated. In other words, the prevalent practice in the literature of using correlated common and specific factors as independent predictors in classical ANOVA models is both statistically unsound and conceptually distorted. We offer several alternative proposals for a sensible re-evaluation of the Dodo Bird verdict.
       
  • From symptoms of psychopathology to the explanation of clinical phenomena
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Tony Ward, Samuel ClackAbstractOur understanding of mental disorders has focused on syndromes and symptom clusters rather than on the nature of the symptom and signs themselves. This paper argues that understanding the composition of symptoms is a valuable way of identifying, describing, classifying, and explaining what disorders are. We begin by discussing the different phases of scientific inquiry and the role that phenomena detection plays in advancing the goals of science. Second, we explore the nature of symptoms, arguing for the epistemic value of viewing symptoms not only as reported concerns, but as clinical phenomena to be explained. By adopting model pluralism, we can build multifaceted explanations of the processes and factors that constitute symptoms. Next, we outline the Phenomena Detection Method, which “bootstraps” the explanation of the symptoms of disorders, moving from thin descriptions of symptoms and signs to rich representations of clinical phenomena. Its purpose is to aid our understanding of the structures and processes constituting disorders through an analysis of their central symptoms, thereby avoiding the problems associated with traditional syndromes.
       
  • The fame monster: Unintended consequence of fame for psychological science
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Christopher J. FergusonAbstractScientific fields often assign fame to certain individuals and studies to delineate a narrative about the field's importance, success, and contribution to knowledge. However, such assignations of fame can result in a situation wherein assumptions of scientific merit may follow from fame, rather than fame following from clear scientific merit. This can result in several problems for the field including conflicts of interest in peer review, resistance to disconfirmatory results, politicization of some research areas, and may contribute to psychology's replication crisis. It is suggested that principles of replicability, transparency and open science can, ultimately, help psychological science identify those empirical results which are most verifiable and, as such, deserving of “fame.”
       
  • Positive and negative valences of the Human body in schizophrenia: A pilot
           study of emotional narrative regarding the front and back
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Alfonso Santarpia, Giuseppe Alessandro Veltri, Hervé Berreby, Armando Menicacci, Michael UebelAbstractPeople with schizophrenia have marked emotional and relational difficulties, such as those with eye contact where there is a markedly strong tendency to avoid looking frontally at others appears when occupying a shared space with strangers. A prominent feature of emotional dysregulation in schizophrenia is clinically evident in blunted affect, often observed as reduced emotional expressivity alongside the individual's report of normal or heightened emotional experience. This study uses a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches in order to explore a crucial, largely unexamined, aspect of the embodied experience of emotions: the front-back axis of the body image in its association with positive or negative emotional words (e. g., Joy, Pleasure, Tenderness, Anger, Anxiety, Fear, and so on). We demonstrate that this spatial axis (front-back) of the body image constitutes two principal emotional narratives. One views the front of the body as conflictual and dangerous, and the other apprehends the back as more reassuring, pleasurable and calming. This kind of emotional narrative, conceptualized within Conceptual Metaphor Theory, explains the findings.
       
  • Agreement in the ultimatum game: An analysis of interpersonal and
           intergroup context on the basis of the consensualistic approach to
           negotiation
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Alexios Arvanitis, Marietta Papadatou-Pastou, Alexandra HantziAbstractThe main paradigm in the study of negotiation is the decision-making approach, which emphasizes an individual-based factor of behavior, self-interest. Focusing on the ultimatum game, we reviewed the segment of the empirical literature that emphasizes social-contextual mechanisms, particularly interpersonal communication and intergroup relations. We found that, through communication, proposals are treated as justifiable claims and that the social context provides different norms for justification. We suggest that aspects of communicative rationality, such as normative rightness and subjective truthfulness, act as organizing principles for approaching negotiation as a joint rule-making process. We argue that any rule proposed is only validated through the agreement of the other side(s) and, thus, the consensualistic approach is better suited for the analysis of negotiation compared to the existing decision-making paradigm.
       
  • A Dynamic Systems Theory of epistemic curiosity
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Ahmet SubaşıAbstractThe article offers a unified theory of epistemic curiosity within dynamic systems framework. It focuses on complex motivational dynamics leading to epistemic curiosity preferences, which are complexly determined by a combination of motivational, affective and cognitive sub-systems operating within an epistemic ecology. Each sub-system is delimited and modelled as an interacting dimension of the multidimensional causality of the system. The theory focuses on personal variations rather than population averages and offers a framework for modelling personality-based epistemic curiosity characteristics based on an analysis of epistemic curiosity preferences.
       
  • Emotions, social activity and neuroscience: The cultural-historical
           formation of emotion
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 54Author(s): Ian BurkittAbstractThis article challenges the use of cognitive-behavioural psychological models underpinning many of the dominant and popular accounts of emotion in the neurosciences. Acknowledging that neurobiology is important for any understanding of emotion, an alternative model of neuropsychology is sought in the work of theorists of the cultural-historical school, particularly A. N. Leontyev and A. R. Luria. The importance of their work in stressing the key role of intentional social activity, culture, and language in the formation of human neuropsychological functions is developed into a theory of emotions that can provide an alternative for emotion studies. In this theory, activity, culture, history, and individual ontogeny play the defining role in structuring the neurobiological systems that underlie emotions, as opposed to the evolution of behaviours that are hard-wired into the brain and function as automatic responses. Instead, it is understood that there is a continuum between evolution and human social and cultural development.
       
  • Personality development among Indigenous youth in Canada: Weaving together
           universal and community-specific perspectives
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Jacob A. Burack, Erin Gurr, Emily Stubbert, Vanessa WevaAbstractIn trying to cobble together a mosaic of information to better understand the disparate and complex issues affecting personality development of the Indigenous youth of Canada, we highlight the need for multiple perspectives. We suggest that pertinent theories from academic psychology, especially those of sociocultural theory and social identity theory, are useful in framing evidence relevant to understanding personality development among Indigenous youth in Canada, but also cite community-specific approaches to understanding and framing issues relevant to personality development within the voice and context of specific communities. The incorporation of Indigenous perspectives in the development of personality constructs would supply an internal cultural view of healthy functioning as opposed to one based only on Western psychological constructs. Moving forward, investigators must apply these language forms and expressions to theories of personality development in a way that expands these theories beyond their non-Indigenous parameters and frameworks. This is a task that must be undertaken with respect for the integrity of the cultures that existed successfully for millenia prior to the European invasion and continue to thrive in the new post-colonial reality.
       
  • Culture and shyness in childhood and adolescence
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Xinyin ChenAbstractShyness refers to anxious reactivity in challenging social situations. Whereas shyness is believed to be biologically rooted, individual socialization experiences play a role in shaping its development. In this paper, I discuss issues related to culture, different forms of shyness, and adjustment. Cultural beliefs and values, particularly those related to socialization goals, are reflected in adults' and peers' attitudes toward children's shy behavior, which ascribe meaning to the behavior and, at the same time, regulate its development. Culture also determines, in part, the functional significance of shyness in terms of its relations with adjustment. It will be important to investigate the mediating role of social processes, such as evaluations and responses in peer interactions, in cultural influence on the display and developmental patterns of shyness. It will also be important to examine the implications of social and cultural changes for the development of shyness.
       
  • Does it matter when we want to Be alone' Exploring developmental
           timing effects in the implications of unsociability
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Robert J. Coplan, Laura L. Ooi, Danielle BaldwinAbstractUnsociability is a characteristic that refers to individual differences in the non-fearful preference for solitude. There is continued debate pertaining to the potential costs and benefits of solitude for our well-being. In this essay, we consider various approaches to the conceptualization and measurement of unsociability, and explore its implications for socio-emotional functioning. Further, we propose a somewhat speculative theoretical model of developmental timing effects for unsociability, which postulates non-linear variations in the implications of a heightened preference for solitude from early childhood to emerging adulthood. After considering the existing empirical support for this model, we outline remaining topics of concerns and suggest the most pressing directions for future research.
       
  • Personality development in the context of individual traits and parenting
           dynamics
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Berenice Anaya, Koraly Pérez-EdgarAbstractOur conceptualization of adult personality and childhood temperament can be closely aligned in that they both reflect endogenous, likely constitutional dispositions. Empirical studies of temperament have focused on measuring systematic differences in emotional reactions, motor responses, and physiological states that we believe may contribute to the underlying biological components of personality. Although this work has provided some insight into the early origins of personality, we still lack a cohesive developmental account of how personality profiles emerge from infancy into adulthood. We believe the moderating impact of context could shed some light on this complex trajectory. We begin this article reviewing how researchers conceptualize personality today, particularly traits that emerge from the Five Factor Theory (FFT) of personality. From the temperament literature, we review variation in temperamental reactivity and regulation as potential underlying forces of personality development. Finally, we integrate parenting as a developmental context, reviewing empirical findings that highlight its important role in moderating continuity and change from temperament to personality traits.
       
  • Epineuromics: Implications for development
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Jonathan D. Moreno, Jay SchulkinAbstractWe note a curious absence in the nomenclature of neuroscience. In neuroscience, neuromics is the study of the totality of neurons in an organism. But the nervous system cannot be fully understood without an account of its interactions with influences that are independent of it. The term we recommend, epineuromics, highlights the continuity and permeability of neural changes within the larger environment. Epineuromics captures the appreciation that the brain is labile but constrained, that it is partly a product of environing information.
       
  • Prenatal influences on the development and stability of personality
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): John E. Krzeczkowski, Ryan J. Van LieshoutAbstractThe brain rapidly develops during the prenatal period; therefore, intrauterine conditions can affect neurodevelopment, behavior and health across the lifespan. The developmental origins of health and disease hypothesis posits that physiological alterations are made by the fetus to adapt to prenatal conditions. Research examining links between perinatal adversity and neurodevelopment has focused mainly on the risk for mental health problems. However, these disorders are likely the product of multiple subtle changes in the brain occurring in response to intrauterine stress, alterations that may have important implications for the development of personality. Here, we review the evidence that bears on the question of if and how prenatal conditions influence personality development. We hypothesize that prenatal conditions lead to alterations in systems mediating stress and reward sensitivity and effortful control, changes that may affect personality traits and their stability across time. Understanding how the prenatal environment influences personality development can help to advance theories of personality development and our understanding of normal behavior.
       
  • On the bifurcation of temperamental shyness: Development, adaptation, and
           neoteny
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Louis A. Schmidt, Kristie L. PooleAbstractIn the present paper, the authors use Tinbergen's (1963) seminal four question framework regarding ontogeny, causation, function, and phylogeny to understand individual differences in human shyness. We argue that there are at least two shyness subtypes, an early appearing fearful shyness, and a later emerging self-conscious shyness (Buss, 1986) that develop into avoidant and conflicted shyness, respectively, in early childhood and remain relatively stable into adulthood. We proffer that each shyness subtype is presumed to have a different cause and function: fearful/avoidant shyness results from social novelty, its function is to motivate vigilance, action and avoidance of impending threat and harm from conspecifics, and is subserved by evolutionarily old brain circuits; self-conscious/conflicted shyness results from the experience of competing emotions of interest and fear of negative evaluation in social situations, its function is to allow more time for additional learning to take place about conspecifics' intentions and motives before responding, and is linked to relatively newer brain circuits. We argue for a highly speculative idea that self-conscious/conflicted shyness bifurcated from fearful/avoidant shyness later in human evolution as the neocortex grew bigger, self-awareness emerged, and the nature of social interactions became more complex. We further speculate that conflicted shyness may be reflective of neoteny (i.e., delaying maturity and retaining child-like features into adulthood). We also provide some ways in which this shyness-neoteny hypothesis can be empirically tested. We conclude by suggesting that considering the adaptive value of some temperamental phenotypes has implications for how we view normal and abnormal behavior.
       
  • Approach, avoidance, and the detection of conflict in the development of
           behavioral inhibition
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: New Ideas in Psychology, Volume 53Author(s): Tyson V. Barker, George A. Buzzell, Nathan A. FoxAbstractMotivation has played an integral role in understanding personality development. Two motivational systems, one associated with seeking reward (approach motivation) and one associated with avoidance of threat (avoidance motivation), have been theorized to represent individual differences in behavioral responses to the environment. However, contextual factors, particularly those with a high degree of novelty, ambiguity, and unpredictability, may simultaneously activate both systems, thereby causing approach–avoidance conflict. The resulting behavior, commonly called inhibition, is characterized by an inability to engage in motivated, goal-directed behavior and is theorized to reflect a core component of anxiety. A form of inhibition observed in childhood, behavioral inhibition (BI), is a relatively stable temperamental profile characterized by negative affect in response to unfamiliar and unpredictable contexts and is a risk factor for anxiety. Our review draws from findings in clinical and cognitive neuroscience to argue that BI reflects an increased sensitivity of both approach and avoidance motivational systems, thereby increasing the likelihood of approach–avoidance conflict within the context of unfamiliar or unpredictable stimuli and environments. Such motivational conflict activates neural systems associated with conflict monitoring, which leads to increases in arousal (e.g., sympathetic nervous system activity) and onlooking behavior, two commonly observed characteristics of childhood BI.

  • A cognitive framework for understanding development of the ability to
           deceive
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: New Ideas in PsychologyAuthor(s): Jeffrey J. Walczyk, Caroline FargersonAbstractA large research literature shows how the ability to deceive improves from early childhood on. For instance, growth in Theory of Mind allows older children to infer accurately others’ mental states, enabling plausible lying. However, theoretical frameworks for integrating these findings are scarce. We expand a cognitive theory of adult high-stakes deception for this purpose: Activation-Decision-Construction-Action Theory (ADCAT). According to ADCAT, deception typically involves four components: activation of the truth, a decision to lie if sharing the truth is sufficiently negative and if conveying a deception is sufficiently positive, construction of a lie that achieves goals, and then acting the deception out. Each component is elaborated developmentally, predictions are generated, and possible tests are proposed. The core developmental principle is that with age deceivers will discover more effective ways to reduce the cognitive load of deception. Expanded ADCAT organizes and explains many research findings and suggests dimensions for understanding deception development throughout the lifespan.
       
  • Is morality the last frontier for machines'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 January 2019Source: New Ideas in PsychologyAuthor(s): Bipin IndurkhyaAbstractThis paper examines some ethical and cognitive aspects of machines making moral decisions in difficult situations. We compare the situations when humans have to make tough moral choices with those in which machines make such decisions. We argue that in situations where machines make tough moral choices, it is important to produce justification for those decisions that are psychologically compelling and acceptable by people.
       
  • Can artificial intelligences be moral agents'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 January 2019Source: New Ideas in PsychologyAuthor(s): Bartosz Brożek, Bartosz JanikThe paper addresses the question whether artificial intelligences can be moral agents. We begin by observing that philosophical accounts of moral agency, in particular Kantianism and utilitarianism, are very abstract theoretical constructions: no human being can ever be a Kantian or a utilitarian moral agent. Ironically, it is easier for a machine to approximate this idealised type of agency than it is for homo sapiens. We then proceed to outline the structure of human moral practices. Against this background, we identify two conditions of moral agency: internal and external. We argue further that the existing AI architectures are unable to meet the two conditions. In consequence, machines - at least at the current stage of their development - cannot be considered moral agents.
       
  • Reconsidering human dignity in the new era
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 2 January 2019Source: New Ideas in PsychologyAuthor(s): Katerina ZdravkovaAbstractDignity is one of those human values, which have dramatically changed in the last few decades. This paper tries to raise awareness of the risks of massively used inventions and new technologies and their possibility to threaten human dignity. It briefly introduces the technologies that symbolize the new era by explaining their birth, current applications, benefits and challenges, and examines the decisive factors that might compromise human rights. Human dignity is concisely re-evaluated, paying attention to the consequences of the technologies that have already intensively modified the world we once knew. At the end, the paper offers some suggestions on how to make the future world better and more dignified.
