  • Persian-Turkish Bilingual Children’s Responses to Forced-Choice
    • Authors: Ali Behzadnia; Mehdi B. Mehrani
      Abstract: The present study aimed to investigate how Persian-Turkish bilingual children tend to respond to forced-choice questions pertaining to objects. A total of 42 bilingual 5- and 6-year-old children were asked two-option forced-choice questions about a set of four familiar and four unfamiliar objects. The analysis of participants’ responses showed that older preschoolers are less susceptible to two-option forced-choice questions. That is, 5- and 6-year-old bilingual preschoolers are less likely to show a recency tendency unless they are asked about unfamiliar objects. Overall, the results evidenced that children’s familiarity with objects influenced their responses, whereas children’s language did not have any impact on their responses. The implications of the findings are discussed.

  • Roles of self-efficacy and transformational leadership in explaining
           voice-job satisfaction relationship
    • Authors: Jun Song; Changqing He; Wei Wu; Xuesong Zhai
      Abstract: Little is known about the consequences of promotive and prohibitive voice. Addressing this issue, this study empirically examined the relationship between promotive and prohibitive voice and job satisfaction, as well as the mediating role of self-efficacy and the moderating role of transformational leadership. Results from 88 employee–supervisor dyads indicated that promotive and prohibitive voice were positively related to job satisfaction. Moreover, the relationship between promotive voice and job satisfaction was fully mediated by self-efficacy, whereas the relationship between prohibitive voice and job satisfaction was partially mediated by self-efficacy. Transformational leadership moderated the effect of prohibitive voice on self-efficacy. Findings enrich the voice literature and provide practical implications. Organizations should encourage employees to engage in voice behavior and strengthen their self-efficacy. Team leaders should be trained and guided to keep suitable leadership style.

  • Emotional map of psychomotor games without competition
    • Authors: Pere Lavega-Burgués; Francisco Lagardera; Queralt Prat-ambròs; Verónica Muñoz-Arroyave; Antoni Costes
      Abstract: This study investigated the affective wellbeing triggered by psychomotor games without competition. Based on the theory of motor action and a qualitative design, the study examined the causes that triggered an emotional experience of wellbeing or illbeing. A total of 376 comments made by 114 university students on the undergraduate degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences were analyzed. The participants took part in two sessions of psychomotor games without competition; after playing each game, the students described the causes of their emotional experiences. Content analysis (levels 1 and 2) confirmed the situational nature of emotions. In the emotional map that was subsequently created, the game itself, non-competition and the quest to achieve a goal (associated with frequency, effort and effectiveness) emerged as key factors.

  • Luxury Consumption Tendency: Conceptualization, Scale Development and
    • Authors: Volkan Dogan; Behcet Yalin Ozkara; Merve Dogan
      Abstract: Luxury consumption is an appealing topic among researchers from the disciplines of psychology and marketing. Although past research on luxury consumption has provided a number of measurement tools to measure brand luxuriousness, attitudes toward the concept of luxury, perceptions of luxury, and prestige shopping preference, researchers lack a scale that measures the luxury consumption tendency using a consumer-centric approach. To this end, this paper introduces the luxury consumption tendency scale, which was produced following the conceptualization of the luxury consumption tendency. Across three studies (total N = 1428), we developed an 18-item luxury consumption tendency scale that consisted of five dimensions. In Study 1, we conducted exploratory survey research of 11 Turkish Ph.D. students, and then, exploratory factor analysis was performed with the survey data collected from 520 Turkish undergraduate students. In Study 2, confirmatory factor analysis was performed on the survey data collected from 808 Turkish adults. In Study 3, we tested the validity performance of the luxury consumption tendency scale through a between-subjects experimental design in which 100 U.S. adults were randomly assigned to one of two conditions: a low-construal level condition and a high-construal level condition. The following results were determined across the three studies: the content, concurrent, convergent, discriminant, and nomological validity performances were established through descriptive (Study 1), cross-sectional (Study 2), and experimental (Study 3) designs. Additionally, the luxury consumption tendency was found to be positively associated with conspicuous consumption and status consumption. Furthermore, we demonstrated that as the construal level increases, so does the luxury consumption tendency.

  • Parental social power, co-parenting, and child attachment: early to late
           japanese adolescence transitions
    • Authors: Atsushi Shimotomai
      Abstract: The purposes of this study were to examine how adolescents’ perceptions of parental powers and how bases of power between the father and the mother separately impact adolescents’ attachment to their father and mother, as well as the changing pattern of such impact. The participants were 44 junior high school students (M = 14.32 years old), 88 high school students (M = 17.27 years old), and 61 university students (M = 20.54 years old) in Japan. Adolescents’ attachment to their parents and their perceptions of parental social powers were assessed. The results indicated that adolescents had a significantly high perceptions of parental expert power. Moreover, the similarity between parental powers strongly impacted the behavioral bonds of adolescents’ attachment. Furthermore, powers between parents mutually defined and influenced the attachment of late adolescents to their parents. Thus, the present study could point out adolescents’ rebuilding their parent-child relationships and the interdependence of parents in child-rearing. These findings are discussed from the perspectives of co-parenting and the social adjustment of parents and children.

  • Relationship between wisdom, perceived control of internal states,
           perceived stress, social intelligence, information processing styles and
           life satisfaction among college students
    • Authors: Akbar Rezaei; Elnaz Mousanezhad Jeddi
      Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between wisdom, social intelligence, perceived control of internal states, perceived stress, information processing styles and life satisfaction among college students. Three hundred and nine students (270 female and 39 male students with a mean age of 27 years) were selected using random cluster sampling method. The Self-Assessed Wisdom Scale, Perceived Control of Internal States Scale, Perceived Stress Scale, Tromso Social Intelligence Scale, Rational-Experiential Inventory and Satisfaction with Life Scale were used for data collection. Results showed that there were significant correlation between emotion regulation, humor (subscales of wisdom), social awareness, social skills (subscales of social intelligence), perceived control of internal states, perceived stress and life satisfaction. The information processing styles had no statistically significant relationship with life satisfaction. Furthermore, the multiple regression analysis revealed that perceived stress, humor and social skills were strongest predictors of life satisfaction among college students. The roles of these variables in life satisfaction were discussed.

  • Cues of woman’s fertility predict prices for sex with prostitutes
    • Authors: Pavol Prokop; Łukasz Dylewski; Joanna T. Woźna; Piotr Tryjanowski
      Abstract: Prostitution is an exchange of sexual services for economic profit which predominantly reflects men’s desire for sexually attractive women. These preferences could be shaped by sexual selection, as a woman’s sexual attractiveness is believed to be a cue of fertility. Using data from Polish prostitutes, we investigated whether cues of fertility are associated with the price for sex. In line with evolutionary predictions, prostitute’s age and body mass index (BMI) were negatively correlated with the price for sex, while breast size (except for very large breasts) and number of sexual offerings were positively associated with the price for sex. This suggests that young, slim prostitutes with moderate breasts are more expensive than older, stockier, and those with very large breasts. We suggest that commercial sex exploits men’s evolved preferences for sexually attractive women who have high reproductive potential.

  • Overseas study experience and global processing style
    • Authors: Jiansheng Li; Siya Wang; Hao Zheng; Defu Pan; Yue Wang; Yang Yang
      Abstract: The current study explored whether overseas study experience is associated with global processing style. In Experiment 1, thirty students had overseas study experience and thirty students had not studied abroad were asked to complete a Navon task. The results showed that, compared to the students without overseas study experience, the students with overseas study experience tended to respond faster towards global letters. In Experiment 2, forty students had overseas study experience and forty students had not studied abroad were asked to look for similarities and differences between the two videos. The results revealed that, compared to students without overseas study experience, students with overseas study experience could find more similarities between objects. These findings indicated that there is a positive relationship between overseas study experience and global processing style.

  • Life-domain regret regarding procrastination (LDR-P): Scale validation in
           the United States and Israel
    • Authors: Marina Goroshit; Meirav Hen; Joseph R. Ferrari
      Abstract: Life regrets over inactions were found to have a long-term negative effect on people’s lives. Procrastination can be considered as a type of inaction; however, life regret regarding procrastination has been only briefly studied. The present study examined the factorial structure of the life-domain regret regarding procrastination scale (LDR-P) in two cultures (the US and Israel). In addition, the associations of regret regarding procrastination with general and behavioral procrastination measures and its mean scores were compared between the two cultures. Findings indicated a four-factor structure (career & community, interpersonal relationships, personal development, self-enhancement) based on the presence of procrastination in different life-domains. Further findings revealed strong associations between regret regarding procrastination and the two other procrastination measures mainly for the US sample. Finally, a comparison of factors means between the US and Israeli samples indicated that Americans more than Israelis experience regret over procrastination in education, career planning, finance and community life-domains. These results suggest both that life-domain regret regarding procrastination is a multi-dimensional construct that can be measured in different cultures and detect some cross-cultural differences. It should be further studied to better understand if and how it affects peoples’ lives, and how it can be addressed.

  • Impact of perceived organizational support and psychological empowerment
           on affective commitment: Mediation role of individual career
    • Authors: J. A. Yogalakshmi; L. Suganthi
      Abstract: Identification and retention of talented workforce is of utmost importance in the current career scenario. This research studied mediating role of individual career self-management and tested a theoretical model examining direct and indirect relationships among perceived organizational support (POS), psychological empowerment (PE), individual career self-management (ICM) and affective commitment (AC). Data was collected from a sample of 270 IT employees designated as ‘talent’ in their respective organizations from the southern part of India. We employed structural equation modeling technique to test proposed research hypotheses. The result supported the idea that perceived organizational support and psychological empowerment positively affects individual career self-management. Individual career self-management was the significant antecedent of affective commitment. Regarding mediation hypothesis, individual career self-management was found to fully mediate the relationship between psychological empowerment and affective commitment. Further, it acted as partial mediator between perceived organizational support and affective commitment. Implication for future research and practices are discussed.

  • Adolescents’ dual affective response to dance in training, grading,
           and competition
    • Authors: Attila Szabo; Dorottya Takács; Márton Magyar; István Soós; Szilvia Boros; Júlia Bősze
      Abstract: The aim of this in-situ research was to measure the changes in affect in adolescent dancers in three situations, before and after: a) training, b) performance grading, and c) competition. With the cooperation of a dance school, 26 girls (mean age = 15.58, SD = 1.58 years) completed the Positive Affect Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) six times. Results yielded a multivariate main effect for time, showing that both positive- and negative affect decreased from pre- to post events in all conditions, while another main effect for condition showed that negative affect was greater during competition than in the other situations. The ending of the dance, that also concludes its social context, could explain the attenuation in positive affect, while the ending of performance-related conformity might explain the decrease in negative affect after the events. Heightened negative affect in competition reveals that adolescent dancers favour the least this situation. It is concluded that adolescent girls exhibit dual affective response to dance, one to its context and one to its content. It also suggested, that youngsters may not enjoy the competition situations as much as the training situations.

  • Time Perspective, Intended Academic Engagement, and Academic Performance
    • Authors: Michael D. Barnett; Patrick R. Melugin; Joseph Hernandez
      Abstract: Time perspective theory addresses how individuals’ emphasis on past, present, and future events influence their behavior. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between time perspective and academic performance among college students using longitudinal, official GPA data, while also considering students’ intended academic engagement—that is, their stated intention to engage in academically beneficial behavior toward the beginning of the semester. Overall, the future, present-hedonistic, present-fatalistic, and past-negative time perspectives were associated with intended academic engagement, while only the future, present-fatalistic and past-negative time perspectives were associated with GPA in the subsequent two semesters. However, only the future time perspective was a unique predictor of intended academic engagement and GPA. Furthermore, intended academic engagement was found to mediate the relationship between future time perspective and GPA after one semester but not two semesters. The results underscore the importance of the future time perspective in relation to academic performance.

The current study investigates the relation between self-compassion and romantic jealousy in adults’ romantic relationships, and the possible mediation effects of anger rumination and willingness to forgive on this relation. Romantic jealousy was conceptualized as reactive, which is a more emotional type, and as anxious, which is a more cognitive type. We hypothesized a negative association between self-compassion and romantic jealousy. In the present study 185 German adults (64 men, 121 women) participated, aged between 18 and 56 years (M = 32.28, SD = 12.14) who were in a romantic relationship. The participants completed the Self-Compassion Scale (SCS, Neff in Self and Identity, 2, 223–250, 2003a), a reactive and anxious jealousy scale (Buunk in Personality and Individual Differences, 23(6), 997–1006, 1997), a willingness to forgive scale (TRIM, McCullough et al. 2000) and the Anger Rumination Scale (ARS, Sukhodolsky et al. in Personality and Individual Differences, 31, 689–700, 2001). Supporting our hypotheses, hierarchical regression analyses showed that self-compassion predicts reactive and anxious jealousy when controlling for age and gender, suggesting that high self-compassionate people are less prone to experience romantic jealousy. Multiple parallel mediation analyses revealed that the effects on reactive jealousy were partially mediated by willingness to forgive, while no significant mediation was found for the effects on anxious jealousy. Additionally, we report the results of exploratory analyses testing the associations of the self-compassion subscales with romantic jealousy. We discuss theoretical conclusions for jealousy and self-compassion research and practical implications for couple’s therapy.

  • Mental Toughness Inventory: Factorial validity and ethnic group
           measurement equivalence in competitive tennis
    • Authors: Richard Gregory Cowden
      Abstract: The Mental Toughness Inventory (MTI) has obtained preliminary support as a psychometrically valid unidimensional measure of mental toughness. Initially developed and validated using a variety of Australian sub-groups, this study explored the cultural and sport-specific applicability of the instrument to competitive male (n = 249) South African tennis players (M age  = 17.84, SD = 2.51). The fit indices from the confirmatory factor analyses largely supported the factor structure of the MTI among the total sample and each of the white (n = 120) and non-white (n = 129) ethnic groupings. The comparative fit indices also provided evidence of the configural, metric, scalar, and strict invariance of the MTI across the groups. Mental toughness scores correlated positively with dispositional hope, and the MTI was found to be internally reliable. Collectively, the findings provide additional psychometric support for using the MTI as a brief, unidimensional measure of mental toughness, extending the utility of the instrument to an underexplored sociocultural context (South Africa) and sport-specific domain (tennis).

  • Auditory Information Supports the Learning Transfer from L2 to L3 Tonal
    • Authors: Moritz Köster; Caspar Mathias Goeke; Bongkoch Goeke; Thomas Hoffmann; Kai Kaspar
      Abstract: While the acquisition of three or more languages becomes steadily more important in modern societies, the underlying cognitive and linguistic processes of multi-linguistic language acquisition are not well understood. This study investigates how a formerly acquired second language (L2) can facilitate the acquisition of a third language (L3). Thirty-two native German speakers with proficient knowledge in either a tonal L2 (Chinese) or a non-tonal L2 (English) learned vocabulary of a tonal L3 (Thai), while the information of the target L3 was either presented visually or both visually and auditorily. Additional auditory information improved later recognition of L3 vocabulary for participants with a tonal L2 (Chinese) but not for those with a non-tonal L2 (English). These results suggest that the L2 to L3 learning transfer can be improved when the similarities between both languages, such as tonal information, are accentuated in the learning process.

  • Negative Emotions in End-Stage Renal Disease: Are Anxiety Symptoms Related
           to Levels of Circulating Catecholamines'
    • Authors: Michele Buemi; Antonio Bruno; Francesca Cordova; Veronica Currò; Eleonora Di Mauro; Domenico Santoro; Valeria Cernaro; Gianluca Pandolfo; Maria Rosaria Anna Muscatello; Rocco Antonio Zoccali
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess depression and anxiety levels and possible correlations with levels of circulating catecholamines in maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) and Conservative care (CC) ERSD patients. Eighty ESRD patients, forty treated by MHD and forty by CC, were included in the study. Circulating catecholamines concentrations were measured; all subjects were assessed by Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression, Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety, Self-Rating Depression Scale, and Self-Rating Anxiety Scale. Statistical analysis showed significant differences in Noradrenaline (p < 0.0001), higher in the CC group, and Dopamine (p = 0.002), higher in MHD subjects. Moreover, significant differences were documented regarding the anxiety variables (HRSA: p = 0.007; SAS: p = 0.007), all higher in CC group; no significant differences were documented on depression variables. Finally, linear regression analysis indicated that only noradrenaline was a strongest predictor of anxiety (HRSA: p = 0.003; SAS: p < 0.0001). ESRD patients showed a heightened vulnerability to anxiety. Given the concerns with pharmacologic treatment of emotional disturbances in patients with ESRD, the priority should be given to psychological interventions and preventive approaches aimed to address the early appearance of anxiety symptoms.

  • Good people do bad things: How anxiety promotes unethical behavior through
           intuitive and automatic processing
    • Authors: Hui Zhang; Yanwei Shi; Zhiqing E. Zhou; Hongyu Ma; Hanying Tang
      Abstract: Although researchers have found that emotions affect unethical behavior, few studies have uncovered the mechanism between anxiety and unethical behavior. The present study investigated how anxiety might influence unethical behavior based on the dual-process theory. In Experiment 1, a recall writing task was used to induce anxiety, and unethical behavior was assessed during an Interaction Task. Results showed that compared with participants who felt neutral emotions, those who felt anxiety were more likely to act unethically. In Experiment 2, we induced emotions by having participants watch videos and measured unethical behavior through a visual perception task. The results replicated findings in Experiment 1 and found that intuitive and automatic processing mediated the relationship between anxiety and unethical behavior. Collectively, our work reveals that anxiety might increase unethical behavior because individuals who feel anxious are more likely to engage in intuitive automatic processing that shifts attention from moral standards to self-interest, and thus to behave unethically. Both theoretical and practical implications of the results are discussed.
