  • Direct and Indirect Effects of Self-efficacy on Depression: The Mediating
           Role of Dispositional Optimism
    • Authors: Jun Pu; Hanpo Hou; Ruiyang Ma
      Pages: 410 - 416
      Abstract: Abstract In this study, we aimed to explore the impact of self-efficacy on depression – specifically, to test and verify the mediating role of dispositional optimism between the two variables. Five hundred and thirty-five undergraduates from two universities were recruited and given a Self-Efficacy Questionnaire, Revised Life Orientation Test, and Self-Rating Depression Scale. Results indicated that there are indeed significant relationships among self-efficacy, dispositional optimism, and each identified dimension of depression; structural equation modeling showed that the relationship between self-efficacy and depression is partially mediated by dispositional optimism. To this effect, we concluded that to develop and improve students’ self-efficacy will reduce their levels of depression, which may have implications in college counseling.

  • Physical Attractiveness, Altruism and Cooperation in an Ultimatum Game
    • Authors: Manpal Singh Bhogal; Niall Galbraith; Ken Manktelow
      Pages: 549 - 555
      Abstract: Abstract Explaining cooperative tendencies through an evolutionary lens has been problematic for theorists. Traditional explanations derive from theories of reciprocity, biological markets, and more recently via partner choice and sexual selection. The sexual selection hypothesis has been tested within game-theoretic frameworks gaining empirical support in explaining the evolution of altruism. Males have been found to be more altruistic towards attractive females. However, previous research has predominantly adopted a design where participants are not engaging with ‘real people’. Instead, participants make decisions when viewing images or hypothetical scenarios without visual cues. The present study aimed to investigate the sexual selection hypothesis using a face-to-face game theoretic framework. One hundred and thirty-eight participants played a 2-round ultimatum game with chocolate coins as the monetary incentive. We find, that physical attractiveness had no influence on generosity and cooperation when participants play a face-to-face ultimatum game. Instead, proposers were fair when allocating stakes, offering an average of half the endowment to responders. This study refutes the link between the sexual selection hypothesis and generosity when playing economic games with real people. Fairness appeared to drive generosity and cooperation.

  • Perceiving a Biological Human Movement Facilitates Action Verb Processing
    • Authors: Sophie-Anne Beauprez; Christel Bidet-Ildei
      Abstract: Abstract In the present study, we investigated whether action observation can influence action verb processing. Participants saw a prime consisting of a point-light display of a human performing an action and then had to perform a lexical decision task on verbs and pseudo-verbs. These verbs were either congruent or incongruent with the prime that had just been presented. Data analysis showed a facilitation effect on response times for congruent action verbs after having seen an action prime, whereas no facilitation was obtained for incongruent action verbs or for scrambled primes. These results showed that action observation can modify the subsequent processing of action verbs. This confirms that action perception and action words processing share common representations. These findings agree with the embodied view of cognition and open new perspectives to the better understanding of mechanisms related to action word processing.

  • Assessing the Relationship between Marital Satisfaction and Conflict
           Communication Styles of Married Turkish Women
    • Authors: Meryem Fırat; Ayşe Okanlı
      Abstract: Abstract This research was conducted to determine the relationship between marital satisfaction experienced by Turkish women and their conflict communication styles. The research also assessed the impact of the descriptive characteristics of women on these variables. The study amassed descriptive and cross-sectional data from May to September 2012, with the sample set consisting of 25,084 married women registered in the Erzincan provincial center of northeastern Turkey. The sample size was set using sampling with a finite population of at least 378 married women by getting p = 0.05, he sampling error of 0.05 and the formula at the limit of 95% confidence level. In practice, it does not stay at the lower limit. The data was collected using the Survey Form, Marriage Life Scale (MLS) and Conflict Communication Scale (CSS) from 418 women living in the city center. The analysis of the data was made with descriptive statistics, t test, Kruskal Wallis, correlation, and variance tests, and the result was statistically significant (p < 0.05). The mean age of women who participated in this study was found to be 35.88 ± 9.23, and the MLS mean score was found to be 34.29 ± 5.10. The mean score of the subscale of expressing feelings was found to be 67.35 ± 8.94, and the mean score of the subscale of close up/avoidance was found to be 63.28 ± 7.90. It was determined that a significant and positive relationship existed between women’s marital satisfaction scores and their expression of feelings (p < 0.05). The mean score of women’s marital satisfaction was generally found at a good level. Therefore, this study identified a relation between women’s marital satisfaction and their styles of conflict.

  • Maybe I Am Not as Moral as I Thought: Calibrating Moral Identity After
           Immoral Action
    • Authors: Zhi Xing Xu; Hing Keung Ma; Yue Wang; Jian Li
      Abstract: Abstract How would people with a high moral identity deal with instances when they have not behaved morally' Cognitive dissonance theory and its revision, self-consistency theory, suggest that people would change their moral identity after committing unethical behavior; however, this process would be moderated by the self-importance of morality. In an experimental study with 87 highly educated young adults from Hong Kong and mainland China, we found that individuals calibrated their moral identity when confronted with evidence of cheating behavior; this calibration, however, was sharper for individuals with a high moral identity than those that with a low one. Possible underlying psychological mechanisms are discussed.

  • Memory Accuracy and Errors: the Effects of Collaborative Encoding on
           Long-Term Retention
    • Authors: Rebecca Brooke Bays; Mary Ann Foley; Stephanie Madlener; Catherine Haorei
      Abstract: Abstract We examined the effects of collaboration during the occurrence of an event on subsequent memory for that event, giving special attention to the impact of social relation on the duration of these effects. Ninety-six participants were assigned to one of three encoding conditions (working alone, collaborating with a friend or collaborating with an unfamiliar peer) to generate descriptions for visualization using thematic list items as cues. Participants next completed a memory test for the list items immediately and following a 48-h retention interval. Results showed that the cohesiveness of participants’ descriptions was negatively correlated with false recognition errors when collaborating with a friend. Importantly, this relationship was maintained over the 48-h retention interval. Results also showed that collaborating pairs remember the source of explicit lure activations (i.e., the source of related items not presented by the experimenter) over the 48-h retention interval. Thus, social interaction during the occurrence of an event has an influence on subsequent memory reports and the nature of the relationship between collaborating pairs has a sustaining influence as well. The implications of these findings for accounts of memory reconstruction processes are discussed while offering new directions for autobiographical memory research.

  • Further Examination of the Psychometric Properties of the Mental Toughness
           Inventory: Evidence from Chinese Athletes and University Students
    • Authors: Chunxiao Li; Chun-Qing Zhang; Liancheng Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract There is an increasing research interest in the concept and measurement of mental toughness. This study examined the psychometric properties of the 8-item Mental Toughness Inventory (MTI) in two Chinese samples: 503 youth athletes and 513 university students. The unidimensional model of the MTI was confirmed and measurement invariance between males and females was supported in both samples. As expected, mental toughness was positively associated with the three basic psychological needs and effort in the athlete sample, and with life satisfaction in the student sample. Excellent internal consistency reliability was found in both samples, and good test–rest reliability was also demonstrated in the student sample. Collectively, these findings provide further psychometric evidence for the MTI and support the utility of the scale in China.

  • Delaying Disposing: Examining the Relationship between Procrastination and
           Clutter across Generations
    • Authors: Joseph R. Ferrari; Catherine A. Roster
      Abstract: 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.

  • Does Marital Adjustment Mediate Type C Personality-Depressive Symptoms
           Relation' A Comparison between Breast Cancer Patients and Cancer-Free
    • Authors: Özlem Bozo; Yagmur Ar; Dilay Eldoğan
      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between Type C personality and depressive symptoms in breast cancer patients, and to examine if marital adjustment mediates this relation. The data was collected from 98 married breast cancer patients undergoing post-operative chemotherapy treatment. Also, 97 married cancer-free women were included in the study as the comparison group to test whether the proposed relationship is typical only to breast cancer patients. Regression analyses indicated that marital adjustment partially mediated Type C personality-depressive symptoms relation in breast cancer patients. However, this mediation was not found in cancer-free women. Findings of the study were discussed in relation to current literature and cultural context of Turkey.

  • Spiritual Intelligence Scale--Chinese Form: Construction and Initial
    • Authors: Ming Feng; Xue-yuan Xiong; Jin-jing Li
      Abstract: Abstract To understand variation in spiritual intelligence with a culture, this paper develops a Spiritual Intelligence Scale in China context using a three-stage sorting process based on interviews and a survey (N = 50) in Study 1. In Study 2, the preliminary study validated the scale using rigorous methods, and a three-factor model of Chinese Spiritual Intelligence (N = 605) is obtained. The results indicate that spiritual intelligence in China is composed of the Identification of Meaning, the Connection of Meaning and the Realization of Meaning. Certainly, there are similarities and differences between this study and Western research. Although the internal consistency reliability was good for Identification and Connection, further improvement for Realization is still required. The three-factor model was better than the alternative models. This research supplements research on spiritual intelligence in different cultures and contributes to research on the Chinese spiritual world.

  • Effects of SOA and Age on the Inhibition of Return in a Localization Task
    • Authors: A. I. Agusti; E. Satorres; A. Pitarque; J. C. Meléndez
      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this research was to study attentional tendencies, specifically the effect of inhibition of return (IOR), comparing a sample of young adults (N = 72) and elderly (N = 74). A task of attention discrimination was used in combination with SOAs (Stimulus Onset Asynchrony) of 300, 750,100 and 1500 ms are used. The results showed that both groups obtained higher reaction times (RT) for the cued assays than the uncued, these data indicated the existence of an IOR effect. In addition, the young adults continued a course of constant decrease in their RT as the SOA increases, however, the older ones also followed a decrease in their RT until reaching the SOA of 1500 ms in which they experienced a significant increase. The observed difference between groups in the 1500 ms SOA indicated that older adults have an IOR effect on long SOAs greater and more durable IOR effect than younger.

  • Social, Familial and Psychological Risk Factors for Endocrine, Nutritional
           and Metabolic Disorders in Childhood and Early Adulthood: a Birth Cohort
           Study Using the Danish Registry System
    • Authors: Mark Shevlin; Philip Hyland; Ask Elklit; Jamie Murphy; Siobhan Murphy; Matthew Kearney; Deborah Christie; Mogens Christoferson
      Abstract: Abstract Research studies have identified associations between a range of social, familial and psychological risk factor and physical health. However, there are many methodological limitations in such studies (e.g. self-reported health status, retrospective recall of adverse events, and lack of control for possible heritability effects). The current study seeks to assess the effect of a range of social and psychosocial risk factors on a diagnosis of any endocrine, nutritional, and metabolic (ENM) disorders (ICD-10 E00–99) using linked Danish registry data from a large birth cohort. Data linkage. A national birth cohort of the Danish population born in 1984 was used in the current study (n = 54,458). Psychosocial risk factors including parental history of diagnosis of an ENM disorder, advanced parental age, gender, urban dwelling, economic deprivation, family dissolution and childhood adversity (child in care) were used to predict any ENM diagnosis. Bivariate associations showed that all variables, except advanced paternal age, were significantly associated with ENM diagnosis. When the variables were entered into a multivariate binary logistic regression analysis childhood adversity (child in care) was the strongest predictor of diagnosis (OR = 2.36) followed by maternal diagnosis of an endocrine disorder (OR = 1.74) and advanced maternal age (OR = 1.69). Results suggest that childhood adversity is the dominant factor in the prediction of an ENM diagnosis. The current study extends the literature conducted on adult populations by demonstrating that early adverse experiences are associated with poor or poorer health outcomes in young adulthood.

  • Psychological Dimensions of Drone Warfare

      Abstract: Abstract The use of weaponized drones or “unmanned aerial vehicles” (UAVs) has become increasingly widespread and controversial over the past few decades. The current paper reviews the state of the research regarding the potential psychosocial impact of weaponized drones on operators and target populations and communities. It is concluded that research regarding the impact of drones in the psychological literature remains limited and most discussion of drones’ impact has taken place in the public policy and legal/ethical spheres, often by entities invested in condoning or condemning the use of drones. The limited available data addresses potential new challenges to the well-being of drone operators, factors influencing decision making regarding the use of drones, and the impact on target communities. The current paper neither condones nor condemns the use of drones, but is advanced as a state of the research and a call for additional objective and empirical analysis on this relatively new form of warfare.

  • Psychometric Properties of the Temperament and Character Inventory-Revised
           in Chinese Young Adults
    • Authors: Daoyang Wang; Mingming Hu; Shuting Li; Sha Tao
      Abstract: Abstract This study aimed to assess the reliability and construct validity of the Chinese version TCI-R-240 in young adults. The 545 young adults completed the Chinese version of TCI-R-240, as well as self-report measures of subjective health (SHC), life satisfaction (SWLS), and Big-Five personality traits (Mini-IPIP). The TCI-R-240 showed high internal consistency reliabilities for all seven dimensions with Cronbach’s alpha coefficients from 0.68 to 0.88. The postulated four-factor structure of temperament and three-factor structure of character was confirmed by factor analysis and principal component analysis. The concurrent validity of the TCI-R-240 has been supported by meaningful correlations with subjective health, life satisfaction and Mini-IPIP. In line with previous studies, the strongest correlations concerning subjective health were negative correlation with Harm Avoidance and positive correlation with Self-directedness. Furthermore, life satisfaction was positively correlated with Self-directedness, Persistence, and Self-transcendence. The Agreeableness dimension was positively correlated with Reward Dependence. The Neuroticism dimension was positively correlated with Harm Avoidance and negative correlation with Self-directedness. The results suggested that the Chinese version of the TCI-R is a valid and reliable measure of temperament and character in young adults.

  • Assessing “Clutter” and Related Constructs with a Non-White,
           Urban Sample
    • Authors: Vincent Prohaska; Denise Celestino; Tiffany Dangleben; Pamela Sanchez; Alana Sandoval
      Abstract: 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.

  • The Influence of Presentation Order on Probability Judgments in a
           Representative Market Setting
    • Authors: Thomas L. Wilson
      Abstract: Abstract This field experiment investigated the contextual effect of presentation order on probability judgments supporting risky decisions in a representative setting: the betting markets of live horseraces. Participants were 54 contestants in a wagering tournament at a national thoroughbred racetrack. Prior to each of 11 races the expert gamblers recorded their estimated odds for all horses to win. Presentation order was manipulated by re-ordering the judgment-related information printed in the track’s program that had been provided for horses in an earlier race. Findings revealed the subjective probability estimates of most gamblers were not invariant with respect to presentation ordering. Probability judgments and risky choices were also associated with the predictive information provided for the gamble first processed during decision making. These results directly contradict calibration findings that probability judgments in this market are highly accurate and they are discussed in terms of the representative experimental design’s utility.

  • The Problem with Online Data Collection: Predicting Invalid Responding in
           Undergraduate Samples
    • Abstract: Abstract The popularity of online research is increasing, but the validity of the results obtained is not yet clear. The purpose of this study was to examine some of the factors that influence the validity of computerized data collection in an undergraduate sample. Participants were 99 university students randomly assigned to one of three data collection conditions: online survey platform, in-person computerized survey platform, and in-person pencil-and-paper survey. Results suggest self-reported inattention symptoms, exposure to more stressors, and computerized platforms predicted more invalid responding. In contrast, personality, self-reported impulsivity symptoms, and shorter completion times did not predict invalid responding. Overall, more than half of the participants failed at least one validity check and 11% failed three or more validity checks. Researchers, particularly those working with undergraduate samples, should consider implementing procedures to ensure the data collected online are valid.

  • Procrastinators and Clutter: An Ecological View of Living with Excessive
    • Abstract: 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.

  • Effect of Core Self-Evaluations on Research Performance among Chinese
           University Teachers
    • Authors: Yungui Guo; Yanting Zhu; Lihua Zhang
      Abstract: Abstract The present study explored the internal influence mechanism of core self-evaluations on research performance using hierarchical regression analysis and a bootstrap method. Participants were 364 university teachers from 9 universities in China, and they were measured by scales of core self-evaluations, research performance, creative self-efficacy and work engagement. The results indicated that core self-evaluations were positively correlated with university teachers’ research performance, while creative self-efficacy and work engagement mediate this correlation. Our study enrich the scholarly understanding on the correlation between core self-evaluations and job performance.

  • The Subjective Risk Intelligence Scale. The Development of a New Scale to
           Measure a New Construct
    • Authors: Giuseppe Craparo; Paola Magnano; Anna Paolillo; Valentina Costantino
      Abstract: Abstract Living in a risky society, in which risk and uncertainty are the rule rather than the exception implies that individuals need to develop new psychological resources to face unpredictable changes and to consider risk and uncertainty as opportunities. This study presents a new definition of the construct of Subjective Risk Intelligence and a new scale to measure this construct, composed of four dimensions: imaginative capability, problem-solving self-efficacy, positive attitude toward uncertainty, and emotional stress vulnerability. The structure and the concurrent and discriminant validity of the scale have been verified, and have demonstrated good psychometric features. Indications for future research and applications in interventions are provided.
