  • Chapter Five - Assessment and Locomotion Conjunction: How Looking
           Complements Leaping … But Not Always
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 58Author(s): Antonio Pierro, Marina Chernikova, Calogero Lo Destro, E. Tory Higgins, Arie W. Kruglanski Locomotion mode is the aspect of self-regulation that is concerned with initiating goal-related movement and maintaining it without interruption in order to effect change, whereas assessment mode is the aspect of self-regulation that is concerned with critical evaluation of alternative goals and means in order to make the right choices. We propose that the separate functions of assessment and locomotion are both essential to effective action in different systems and domains: assessment leads individuals, dyads, and groups to reflect thoroughly on the right course of action, whereas locomotion effects change as such by its emphasis on taking action. Typically, the union of assessment and locomotion (i.e., their copresence) benefits task performance. However, when tasks are not complex, the assessment function is less essential and locomotion alone suffices to carry the action to success. We discuss the practical implications of these research findings and consider potential avenues for future research.
  • Chapter Four - Attentional Processes in Social Perception
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 58Author(s): Lisa M. Huang, Jeffrey W. Sherman In this chapter, we describe how a simple attentional mechanism can account for a wide variety of phenomena in social perception. According to Attention Theory (Kruschke, 1996, 2003), people preferentially attend to differentiating information in order to maximize category learning. When learning multiple social categories, people attend to all features that characterize the first-learned category but shift their attention to features that uniquely distinguish a later-learned category from the first. As a result, they form a stronger impression of the later-learned social category. First, we review research on attentional processes in stereotype formation and group categorization. We show how Attention Theory can account for both category accentuation and illusory correlation in the formation of majority and minority group stereotypes. We then explain how attention shifting influences face perception and racial categorization. Second, we describe attentional processes as they relate to context-based impression formation and the influence of individual- and group-based expectancies on context-based impressions. Last, we discuss implications for impression change.
  • Chapter Three - Loneliness in the Modern Age: An Evolutionary Theory of
           Loneliness (ETL)
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 58Author(s): John T. Cacioppo, Stephanie Cacioppo We describe the Cacioppo Evolutionary Theory of Loneliness (ETL) and its manifestations in contemporary society. The early conceptualizations of loneliness were as an individual difference characterizing a relatively small subset of the population. The ETL characterizes loneliness as not simply addressing an individual difference, but also as addressing the effects of loneliness on people generally. The progression motivated by the ETL to animal models and comparative analyses broadens the focus further to periods long before hominids evolved. The premise underlying our ETL is that an organism's perception of being socially isolated (i.e., lonely) automatically signals an environment in which the likelihood is low of encountering social behaviors categorized in terms of evolutionary fitness as mutual benefit or altruism. As a result, the likelihood is high of the organism exhibiting behaviors categorized in terms of evolutionary fitness as selfish. This shift in the fitness consequences of behavior is posited to be evolutionarily old and to operate in humans in part through nonconscious processes. The ETL addresses the adaptive functions of loneliness that foster short-term survival but that in the modern world can have deleterious long-term consequences. In doing so, the ETL places the social level of organization front and center in scientific investigations of the human brain and behavior. The centrality of the social world highlighted by the ETL is not attributed to social construction but to social and biological processes, including evolutionary forces operating across social species long before humans walked the earth.
  • Chapter Two - The Agentic–Communal Model of Advantage and Disadvantage:
           How Inequality Produces Similarities in the Psychology of Power, Social
           Class, Gender, and Race
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 58Author(s): Derek D. Rucker, Adam D. Galinsky, Joe C. Magee This integrative review presents the Agentic–Communal Model of Advantage and Disadvantage to offer insight into the psychology of inequality. This model examines the relation between individuals’ position of advantage or disadvantage in a social hierarchy and their propensity toward agency and communion. We begin by identifying and reviewing four inequalities—Resources, Opportunities, Appraisals, and Deference, or the ROAD of inequality—that are fundamental to social advantage and disadvantage. We explain how these inequalities can instill a sense of advantage and disadvantage in individuals. Next, we discuss two core drivers of human behavior: agency and communion. We integrate these literatures to introduce the model's central propositions: a sense of advantage orients individuals toward agency and a sense of disadvantage orients individuals toward communion. We review evidence for this model across four distinct social hierarchies: power, social class, gender, and race. A number of findings suggest that higher-power individuals, higher-class individuals, men, and Whites express greater agency, whereas lower-power individuals, lower-class individuals, women, and minorities express greater communion. We also consider results in the literature that appear inconsistent with our propositions (i.e., when the advantaged are communal and the disadvantaged are agentic) and offer theoretical integrations to resolve these apparent contradictions. In particular, we highlight how the orthogonal nature of agency and communion can produce behavior that results from the combination of high agency and communion. To help motivate a future research agenda, we note the importance of both hierarchy salience and cultural considerations in determining individuals’ orientations toward agency and communion. Finally, we consider the implications of this model for the study of social hierarchy and inequality, as well as the consequences of rising inequality levels.
  • Chapter One - Intergroup Emotions Theory: Production, Regulation, and
           Modification of Group-Based Emotions
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 58Author(s): Diane M. Mackie, Eliot R. Smith Emotions are a ubiquitous aspect of interaction between groups. As described in Intergroup Emotions Theory (IET; Mackie, Devos, & Smith, 2000; Smith, 1993), intergroup emotions are emotions people feel on account of their membership in a group to which they belong and with which they identify. In this chapter, we first describe the foundational assumption of IET: that the experience of intergroup emotions depends upon group membership and the pervasive normative processes that group membership entails. We then review the voluminous literature that documents the intragroup and intergroup cognitive and behavioral outcomes driven by such emotions. We next review the theoretically and practically crucial notion of how such emotions are regulated, a topic that has been an increasing research focus in the last 5 years. The chapter ends with a description and discussion of intergroup emotion-relevant interventions that have been or could be designed to improve intergroup relations.

  • Chapter Five - What Makes Moral Disgust Special' An Integrative
           Functional Review
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 57Author(s): Roger Giner-Sorolla, Tom Kupfer, John Sabo The role of disgust in moral psychology has been a matter of much controversy and experimentation over the past 20 or so years. We present here an integrative look at the literature, organized according to the four functions of emotion proposed by integrative functional theory: appraisal, associative, self-regulation, and communicative. Regarding appraisals, we review experimental, personality, and neuroscientific work that has shown differences between elicitors of disgust and anger in moral contexts, with disgust responding more to bodily moral violations such as incest, and anger responding more to sociomoral violations such as theft. We also present new evidence for interpreting the phenomenon of sociomoral disgust as an appraisal of bad character in a person. The associative nature of disgust is shown by evidence for “unreasoning disgust,” in which associations to bodily moral violations are not accompanied by elaborated reasons, and not modified by appraisals such as harm or intent. We also critically examine the literature about the ability of incidental disgust to intensify moral judgments associatively. For disgust's self-regulation function, we consider the possibility that disgust serves as an existential defense, regulating avoidance of thoughts that might threaten our basic self-image as living humans. Finally, we discuss new evidence from our lab that moral disgust serves a communicative function, implying that expressions of disgust serve to signal one's own moral intentions even when a different emotion is felt internally on the basis of appraisal. Within the scope of the literature, there is evidence that all four functions of Giner-Sorolla’s (2012) integrative functional theory of emotion may be operating, and that their variety can help explain some of the paradoxes of disgust.
  • Chapter Four - Consequences of Thought Speed
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 57Author(s): Kaite Yang, Emily Pronin The speed of thinking is a frequently overlooked aspect of mental life. However, the pace of thought is an essential property of thinking, and its consequences have recently begun to be discovered. In this chapter, we review the psychological consequences of accelerated and decelerated thought pace. We begin by examining how the manipulation of thought speed alters mood, self-perception, risk-taking, creativity, and arousal. We highlight the energizing, activating, and hedonic effects of fast thinking, and we show how thought-speed effects are independent of thought content, fluency, and goal progress. We describe an adaptive theory of thought speed wherein psychological responses to the acceleration of thinking confer adaptive advantages for confronting novel, urgent, and rapidly changing situations, and engaging in behaviors driven by appetitive motivation. Lastly, we discuss implications of thought speed and its manipulation for treatment of mental illness, for design and delivery of communications and messages, and for life in the age of rapid access and exposure to information.
  • Chapter Three - Attitudes Towards Science
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 57Author(s): Bastiaan T. Rutjens, Steven J. Heine, Robbie M. Sutton, Frenk van Harreveld As science continues to progress, attitudes toward science seem to become ever more polarized. Whereas some put their faith in science, others routinely reject and dismiss scientific evidence. This chapter provides an integration of recent research on how people evaluate science. We organize our chapter along three research topics that are most relevant to this goal: ideology, motivation, and morality. We review the relations of political and religious ideologies to science attitudes, discuss the psychological functions and motivational underpinnings of belief in science, and describe work looking at the role of morality when evaluating science and scientists. In the final part of the chapter, we apply what we know about science evaluations to the current crisis of faith in science and the open science movement. Here, we also take into account the increased accessibility and popularization of science and the (perceived) relations between science and industry.
  • Chapter Two - Unpacking the Inequality Paradox: The Psychological Roots of
           Inequality and Social Class
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 57Author(s): Paul K. Piff, Michael W. Kraus, Dacher Keltner Why does economic inequality continue to rise despite being disfavored and harmful to individuals and society' To better understand this inequality paradox, we advance an inequality maintenance model of social class. We detail a set of five propositions to encapsulate the psychological processes that perpetuate class division in society—disparities between the rich and the poor—and we review recent supporting data. With respect to the structural processes that define social class, we show that class-differentiated experiences of threat, scarcity, and access to valued networks enhance economic inequality by compounding (dis)advantage in education, work, and relationships. With respect to social perceptual processes, we outline how social class is signaled and perceived during social interactions, triggering class-based stereotypes and patterns of distancing that reinforce inequality. With respect to ideological processes, we discuss how ideologies of merit legitimize economic inequality and bolster class division. With respect to moral–relational processes, we examine how class-based patterns of compassion, helping, and power seeking exacerbate economic inequality by concentrating resources among the upper class and constraining advancement among the lower class. Finally, with respect to intergroup processes, we posit that social class group identities catalyze difficulties in cross-class affiliation, asymmetric resource sharing, and class conflict, strengthening class division in society. We conclude with a discussion of new research and future directions that can address class disparities and, ultimately, help foster a more equal society.
  • Chapter One - Contextualized Attitude Change
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, Volume 57Author(s): Bertram Gawronski, Robert J. Rydell, Jan De Houwer, Skylar M. Brannon, Yang Ye, Bram Vervliet, Xiaoqing Hu The current chapter reviews the findings of an ongoing research program suggesting that changes in attitudes can be limited to the context in which counterattitudinal information was learned. The reviewed findings indicate that, although counterattitudinal information may effectively influence evaluations in the context in which this information was learned, previously formed attitudes may continue to influence evaluations in any other context. According to the representational theory of contextualized attitude change, such patterns of contextual renewal occur because exposure to expectancy-violating information enhances attention to context, which leads to an integration of the context into the representation of expectancy-violating counterattitudinal information. The chapter reviews research that (a) tested novel predictions derived from the representational theory of contextualized attitude change, (b) explored the nature of contextualized representations, and (c) investigated the boundary conditions of contextualized attitude change. Theoretical challenges, future directions, and implications for basic and applied research are discussed.
