  • Delaying Disposing: Examining the Relationship between Procrastination and
           Clutter across Generations
    • Authors: Joseph R. Ferrari; Catherine A. Roster
      Pages: 426 - 431
      Abstract: We explored how two types of procrastination (indecision and behavioral), contribute to problems with clutter across three adult U.S. samples differing as generational cohorts. An online survey was administered to college students (mean age = 21) and younger adults recruited using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (MTurk; mean age = 31), plus older adults recruited with help from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (mean age = 54) ( Hierarchical linear regression revealed that behavioral procrastination contributed significantly to an increasingly larger percentage of explained variance in clutter problems across the generational cohorts in a series of separate analyses. The addition of indecision as a variable led to a significant incremental increase in explained variance for the younger and older adult samples, but not for the student sample. Clutter problems led to a significant decrease in satisfaction with life among older adults. Findings suggest that general procrastination tendencies may enable a lifelong pattern of responses to one’s environment that become increasingly maladaptive throughout the life cycle - simultaneously delaying disposal decisions.

  • Assessing “Clutter” and Related Constructs with a Non-White,
           Urban Sample
    • Authors: Vincent Prohaska; Denise Celestino; Tiffany Dangleben; Pamela Sanchez; Alana Sandoval
      Pages: 432 - 435
      Abstract: How does the clutter in people’s lives affect their sense of home and well-being' Why do some people (specifically non-white individuals) have too much clutter, and too many possessions, and is clutter related to procrastination' We examined the relation of clutter to psychological sense of home, subjective well-being, procrastination (both decisional and routine), and the need for cognition. Our participants (n = 192) were predominantly non-White, urban college students. Results confirmed prior research indicting negative relations between clutter and both the psychological sense of home and subjective well-being, plus a negative relation between clutter and need for cognition. Clutter was positively related to both forms of procrastination examined. The two forms of procrastination differed in their relation to need for cognition, supporting the view of decisional and routine procrastination as two distinct sub-types of procrastination.

  • Decisional Procrastination: Assessing Characterological and Contextual
           Variables around Indecision
    • Authors: Joseph R. Ferrari; Kendall P. Crum; Matthew A. Pardo
      Pages: 436 - 440
      Abstract: University students (n = 75; M age = 21.4 years old) and community adults (n = 55: M age = 36.6 years old) completed self-reported measures of decisional procrastination (indecision), character (life satisfaction, meaningful life, and need for cognition), context (place attachment, sense of community, and psychological home) and “cross-over” factors relating character and context (self-identity with possessions, people/thing orientation, and clutter), to provide an ecological understanding of persons who claim indecision. Controlling for social desirability tendencies, indecision was negatively related to all character but none of the context variables. Indecision also was related to both person and thing orientation and clutter. Multiple regression analysis indicated that only need for cognition significantly predicted (negatively) indecision among character, context, and cross-over variable sets. Subjective well-being also predicted indecision with low need for cognition among cross-over variables. Taken together, decisional procrastinators reported too much clutter (stuff), interfering with a positive quality of life and related to character over context and cross-over, ecological variables.

  • Procrastinators and Clutter: An Ecological View of Living with Excessive
    • Authors: Joseph R. Ferrari; Catherine A. Roster; Kendall P. Crum; Matthew A. Pardo
      Pages: 441 - 444
      Abstract: In the present study, young adults (n = 346; M age = 21.5 years old) completed self-reported measures of procrastination, self-identity with possessions, clutter, place attachment, and psychological home to provide an ecological understanding of the context in which chronic procrastinators live. Results found behavioral procrastination tendencies related only to clutter (a belief that living spaces have too much “stuff,” feeling overwhelmed with excessive possessions, and that one’s personal life is negatively impacted by many possessions). Clutter in one’s living space, negative emotions, and impaired social ability all predicted high procrastination scores. Clutter was the best predictor of procrastination as determined by multiple regression. Taken together, chronic procrastinators reported too much clutter (possessions, or stuff), and that clutter interferes with a strong quality of their lives.

  • Imperfection, Indecision, and Hoarding
    • Authors: Alexandra Burgess; Randy O. Frost; Cheyenne Marani; Isabella Gabrielson
      Pages: 445 - 453
      Abstract: Hoarding disorder is a new DSM-5 disorder that causes functional impairment and affects 2 to 6% of the population (Frost and Steketee 2014). The current study evaluated a multiple mediation model with 243 undergraduate women in which indecisiveness (VOCI; Thordarson et al. Behaviour Research and Therapy, 42(11), 1289-1314, 2004) and decisional procrastination (DPS; Mann 1982) mediated the relationship between dimensions of perfectionism (F-MPS-B; Burgess et al. 2016a) and hoarding behavior (SI-R; Frost et al. Behaviour Research And Therapy, 42(10), 1163–1182, 2004) and excessive acquiring (CAS; Frost et al. Annual Review of Clinical Psychology, 8, 219–242, 2012). Multiple mediational analyses indicated a significant indirect effect for decisional procrastination, but not indecisiveness, in mediating evaluative concerns (but not striving) to SI-R Total, SI-R Clutter, SIR Excessive Acquisition, and both CAS subscales. Both mediators were significant pathways between evaluative concerns and SI-R Difficulty Discarding. These findings support a cognitive behavioral model of hoarding, suggesting that evaluative concerns produces problems in decision-making that influence acquisition, discarding, and clutter.

  • Trait Procrastination, Hoarding, and Continuous Performance Attention
    • Authors: Burt Ashworth; William McCown
      Pages: 454 - 459
      Abstract: We examined the relationship between chronic procrastination, hoarding, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and a computer measure of continuous performance with 84 adult patients evaluated for diagnoses. Patients were administered the General Procrastination Inventory, the Saving Inventory-Revised, the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale and the IVA + Plus Continuous Performance Test. Procrastination scores correlated negatively with auditory attention scores, while self-reported hoarding tendencies correlated negatively with visual attention. Measures of procrastiation, hoarding, and ADHD were positively correlated. Implications and limitations of findings are discussed as well as directions for futher research.

  • Procrastination, Hoarding, and Attention Beyond Age 65 a Community-Based
    • Authors: Greg Stolcis; William McCown
      Pages: 460 - 465
      Abstract: We examined procrastination, hoarding, and attention in 80 older adults in community samples in the American South. Volunteers completed Lay’s General Procrastination Inventory, Frost, Steketee, and Grisham’s Saving Inventory Revised, the Oral Trail Making Test, a computerized Stroop Color Word Test, and measures of semantic and phonemic verbal fluencies. Findings suggest that procrastination affects older adults and it may be reliably measured. As with younger people procrastination and hoarding correlated in a positive direction. Hoarding correlated negatively with performance on the Trail Making Test Part B and the Color Word Score on a modified version of the Stroop Test. Hoarding also correlated negatively with Semantic Fluency though not with Phonemic Fluency. Procrastination correlated significantly and negatively only with Semantic Fluency and not with other attention measures. Limitations of the study and implications for future research are discussed.

  • Trait Anxiety and Attention: Cognitive Functioning as a Function of
           Attentional Demands
    • Authors: Rotem Leshem
      Abstract: This study examined the relationship between trait anxiety and cognitive functioning, specifically response inhibition and conflict resolution, by comparing attention switching and sustained attention conditions in a dichotic-listening to words task. Results showed that high- as compared to low-anxiety participants had a lower hit rate in both attention conditions, a lower intrusion rate in the sustained attention condition, and greater difficulty shifting attention in the mixed condition. Furthermore, laterality-related findings revealed that high-anxiety participants had a lower hit rate when attention was directed to the left-ear (right hemisphere) and less intrusions when attention was directed right-ear (left hemisphere) than did the low-anxiety participants. The findings are interpreted based on attentional control and load theories as well as on the attentional model of hemisphere asymmetry, supporting the proposition that high anxiety is associated with an imbalance between bottom-up and top-down processes, and that anxiety may affect cognitive control under high cognitive load conditions.

  • Different slopes for different folks: Gender moderates the relationship
           between empathy and narcissism
    • Authors: JohnBosco Chika Chukwuorji; Charity N. Uzuegbu; Favour Agbo; Chuka Mike Ifeagwazi; Genevieve Chimaoge Ebulum
      Abstract: Narcissism is reportedly on the increase across generations and one fundamental factor in narcissism is limited empathy. This study examined whether gender moderates the relationship between multidimensional empathy (Empathic Concern, Fantasy, Personal Distress, and Perspective Taking) and narcissism. Participants were 331 undergraduate students in a Nigerian university (197 men and 134 women; Mean age = 21.13, SD = 2.65). Data was obtained using self-report questionnaires consisting of Narcissism Spectrum Scale, Interpersonal Reactivity Index, and a section for relevant demographic information. Moderation analysis showed that there was a stronger negative association between three dimensions of empathy (Empathic Concern, Fantasy, and Perspective Taking) and narcissism for women, but gender effects on the relationship between Personal Distress and narcissism was not significant. Controlling for the effect of age, Multivariate Analysis of Covariance indicated that women had higher Fantasy and Personal Distress than men, but men had higher narcissism than women. The findings are considered to have implications especially in development of gender-based intervention programmes to curtail the rising occurrence of narcissistic traits.

  • The effects of middle school art class with an empathy-based learning
    • Authors: Sukkyung You; June Lee; Yunoug Lee; Eui Kyung Kim
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to apply an empathy-based learning model developed by Lee et al. (2014) to a middle school art class and document its effects on students’ empathy, self-esteem, and class participation. The participants were 37 ninth-grade students from two middle school classes in Korea (19 in the experimental group and 18 in the control group). The experimental group was placed in an art class using the empathy-based learning model, while the control group was placed in a different art class taught in a traditional, lecture-oriented way. Quantitative data measuring students’ empathy, self-esteem, and class participation were analyzed using independent sample t-tests and MANOVA. A female teacher (age = 34) and 19 students (age range = 14–16, mean age = 14.60) from the experimental group also participated in written interviews to provide more in-depth perspectives about the empathy-based learning model. The results showed that the empathy-based instruction (received by the experimental group) had stronger positive effects on students’ empathy and class participation than the traditional lecture-oriented instruction, but these positive effects were not seen on the students’ self-esteem. Interviews with members of the experimental group indicated that both the teacher and students were satisfied with the empathy-based art class and recognized the importance of empathy in their lives. These results suggest the positive influence of the empathy-based learning model on middle school students. The implications and future directions are discussed.

  • Identity development in people with mild intellectual disability: A
           short-term longitudinal study
    • Authors: Małgorzata Rękosiewicz
      Abstract: The objective of the study was to diagnose changes in the identity of individuals with mild intellectual disability (ID) in late adolescence and emerging adulthood, comparing them to their non-disabled peers. The dual-cycle model of identity formation of Luyckx et al. was employed (Developmental Psychology, 42, 366–380, 2006). The study included 127 participants living in Poland. Three waves were performed at half-year intervals. The Dimensions of Identity Development Scale in its modified version for people with ID was used (DIDS/PL-1; Rękosiewicz Studia Psychologiczne, 53, 19–31, 2015). People from the four study groups (A - late adolescents with ID, B - emerging adults with ID, C - late adolescents within the intellectual norm, D - emerging adults within the intellectual norm) in the main did not differ from one another in respect of the dimensions of identity formation. Over time, there was an increase in commitment making and identification with commitment, but only among adolescents with ID. None of the groups demonstrated significant changes in exploration in breadth, in depth, nor in ruminative exploration. It was successfully demonstrated that people with mild ID are not distinct on all dimensions of identity formation when compared to their peers within the intellectual norm. Minor changes in identity may indicate a longer period of identity formation, or dynamic changes coming earlier – during early adolescence or later – in early adulthood.

  • “Because I am worth it and employable”: A cross-cultural study on
           self-esteem and employability orientation as personal resources for
           psychological well-being at work
    • Authors: Alessandro Lo Presti; Kaisa Törnroos; Sara Pluviano
      Abstract: Building on the Conservation of Resources (COR) framework (Hobfoll American Psychologist, 44(3), 513–524, 1989), employability can be conceived as a personal resource that, similarly to core self-evaluation concepts such as self-esteem, relates favourably to a wide array of both work-related and more general well-being outcomes. We carried out a survey involving 254 Italian and 254 Finnish employees via a self-report questionnaire to investigate whether employability orientation acted as a mediator on the well-established relationship between self-esteem and psychological well-being. Results indicated that self-esteem was positively associated with employability orientation; moreover, country moderated such relationship, given that the association between these two variables was stronger among Italian than Finnish employees. Furthermore, self-esteem predicted different facets of psychological well-being at work (job satisfaction, vigour, emotional exhaustion, psychological symptoms) in both countries. We investigated both the mediated effect of employability orientation on the association between self-esteem and psychological well-being and the possible moderating effect originated by the country of origin of respondents. In several cases, employability orientation partly mediated the effects of self-esteem on psychological well-being. Findings confirm self-esteem and employability to be personal resources that are likely to affect positively psychological well-being at work.

  • Exploring body image, strength of faith, and media exposure among three
           denominations of Jewish women
    • Authors: Shulamit Geller; Jonathan Handelzalts; Rita Gelfat; Shirli Arbel; Yael Sidi; Sigal Levy
      Abstract: Body image dissatisfaction has been associated with harmful effects on the psychological well-being of women in western societies. Religion has been suggested to be a protective factor against body image dissatisfaction, though its precise mechanisms are not fully understood. Thus, the present study investigated the relationship between religious denominations and body image, both positive and negative. Further, it examined strength of religious faith, media exposure, and modesty, as possible mediating factors underlying this relationship. Participants were 483 Jewish women belonging to ultra-Orthodox, modern-Orthodox, or to a secular population. All factors were measured by self-report questionnaires. Findings revealed that compared to secular Jewish women, ultra-Orthodox Jewish women maintain more positive attitudes regarding their bodies, and suffer less from body image dissatisfaction. Importantly, positive and negative body image had unique effects: Positive body image differed between the Ultra-Orthodox group and the other two groups, and this relationship was fully mediated both by media exposure and by strength of religious faith. For negative body image, secular women differed from the two other groups, and this relationship was fully mediated only by media exposure. These findings are discussed in light of sociocultural influences, and related clinical implications.

  • Chinese Students’ Satisfaction with Life Relative to Psychological
           Capital and Mediated by Purpose in Life
    • Authors: Rongwei Zhang; Béatrice Marianne Ewalds-Kvist; Dan Li; Jun Jiang
      Abstract: Altogether 700 college students aged 18 to 24 years (M = 20.81, SD = 1.29) originating from six universities in China participated in this study. The current aim was to find out whether a student’s sense of purpose in life mediated the relationship between his/her psychological capital (PsyCap) comprising hope, generalized self-efficacy, resilience, optimism (HERO; Luthans and Youssef-Morgan. Annual Review of Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior, 4, 339–366, 2017) and satisfaction with life. Furthermore, it was asked which factor contributes more to students’ satisfaction with life, PsyCap or purpose in life' Thus, apprentices completed the Adult Dispositional Hope Scale (Snyder et al. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 60(4), 570–585, 1991), General Self-Efficacy Scale (Schwarzer and Jerusalem. Causal and Control Beliefs, 1, 35–37, 1995), Resilience Scale (Wagnild and Young. Journal of Nursing Measurement, 1(2), 165–17847, 1993), Life Orientation Test-Revised (Scheier et al. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 67(6), 1063–1078, 1994) along with the completion of the Purpose in Life Test (Crumbaugh and Maholick. Journal of Clinical Psychology, 20(2), 200–207, 1964) and Satisfaction with life scale (Diener et al. Journal of Personality Assessment, 49(1), 71–75, 1985). The results disclosed grade differences in PsyCap elements. Moreover, positive and significant correlations between any of two variables were found, thus allowing for further analysis. Structural equation modeling revealed that students’ satisfaction with life was directly predicted by PsyCap per se as well as indirectly projected by means of the construct purpose in life. Based on the present assessment, PsyCap contributed more to students’ satisfaction with life than their experienced purpose in life.

  • Effects of facial periphery on unfamiliar face recognition
    • Authors: Rubén García-Zurdo; Charlie D. Frowd; Antonio L. Manzanero
      Abstract: Facial identification based on a comparison with a photo-ID is the most standard way to prove identity at security controls. Two experiments are performed controlling for the presence or absence of within-contour facial periphery (masking) and its substitution for an average periphery image (averaging), measuring matching accuracy, reaction time and signal-detection measures d’ an C. Experiment 1 compared face matching for the original periphery in the pair, its masking and its averaging using a sample of frontal image pairs. Experiment 2 compared matches in the average condition with and without an apparent gap around internal features. Results show that masking of facial periphery had a detrimental effect on unfamiliar face matching accuracy accompanied by an increased tendency to positive responses, while averaging composites yielded no difference as compared to the original pair. No differences were found for matching in conditions with or without an apparent gap. The results suggest that face periphery contributes to unfamiliar face matching accuracy through a holistic process which is disrupted when focusing exclusively on the innermost features; the effect is dependent on the global structure of the face image and not related to low-level details. These results should be considered in the context of improving unfamiliar face matching.

  • Is the concept of forgiveness universal' a cross-cultural perspective
           comparing western and eastern cultures
    • Authors: Man Yee Ho; Everett L. Worthington
      Abstract: To understand the conceptualizations of forgiveness more comprehensively, both the cognitive and emotional aspects of forgiveness were investigated across different cultures. Two studies examined cultural similarities and differences in the conceptualizations of forgiveness. In Study 1, we compared idioms of the Chinese and English languages. In Study 2, we compared transgression-related writings between Hong Kong Chinese and Americans. In Study 1 (N = 204), we found that the basic presumptions of forgiveness (i.e., the recognition of transgression and the idea of cancelling debt) were similar across cultures. The cognitive dimension of forgiveness (which involves virtues that preserve social relationships) was more frequently observed in Chinese idioms than English idioms. In Study 2 (N = 68), we found that similar emotional responses (e.g., shame and guilt) arose across cultures following one’s own wrongdoing. Chinese writers were more likely to adopt higher cognitive processing in understanding forgiveness than American writers, as was reflected in their writings.

  • Mental health in teachers: Relationships with job satisfaction, efficacy
           beliefs, burnout and depression
    • Authors: Vincenza Capone; Giovanna Petrillo
      Abstract: Several studies showed that mental well-being varies based on employment status. A comprehensive assessment of well-being, covering both hedonic and eudaimonic aspects, has been considered essential to capture an individual’s positive mental health. Aims: Based on the classification proposed in the Mental Health Continuum model by Keyes (2005), aims were to estimate teachers’ prevalence of mental health, and to examine the associations between mental health and, respectively, burnout, depression, teacher self-efficacy, teacher collective efficacy and job satisfaction, taking into account the job status. 285 high school teachers completed a self-report questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive and correlational analyses. Findings showed that 38.7% of participants were flourishing, 53.2% were moderately mentally healthy, and 8.2% were languishing. The flourishing group reported lower prevalence of depression and burnout, and higher levels of job satisfaction and efficacy beliefs than the other two groups. Significant differences between the permanent and temporary teachers emerged. Interventions to improve teachers’ well-being should take into account factors as teachers’ self-efficacy, collective efficacy, as well as teachers’ perception of job satisfaction, and the adverse impact that the condition of temporary teacher could have on work.

  • Math homework purpose scale for preadolescents: a psychometric evaluation
    • Authors: Meilu Sun; Jianxia Du; Jianzhong Xu
      Abstract: The current study validated the Math Homework Purpose Scale (MHPS) for preadolescents. Having randomly split participants into two subsamples, we conducted exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) on subsample 1 (n = 293) and subsample 2 (n = 292), respectively. Both EFA and CFA indicated that the MHPS consisted of three factors: Academic, Self-regulatory, and Approval-seeking Reasons. Given an adequate level of measurement invariance, we further examined the latent mean difference across gender. Results revealed no statistically significant mean differences in Academic, Self-regulatory, and Approval-seeking Reasons across gender. Finally, consistent with theoretical expectations, Academic and self-regulatory Reasons were positively correlated with homework effort, homework completion, and math achievement.
