  • 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.

  • Are self-compassionate partners less jealous' Exploring the mediation
           effects of anger rumination and willingness to forgive on the association
           between self-compassion and romantic jealousy
    • Authors: Nancy Tandler; Lars-Eric Petersen
      Abstract: Self-compassion promotes well-being and positive outcomes when encountering negative life events. 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.

  • Trait Procrastination, Hoarding, and Continuous Performance Attention
    • Authors: Burt Ashworth; William McCown
      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.

  • Promoting positive youth development through a school-based intervention
           program Try Volunteering
    • Authors: Inga Truskauskaitė-Kunevičienė; Eva Romera; Rosario Ortega-Ruiz; Rita Žukauskienė
      Abstract: The aim of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy of the short-term school-based intervention program Try Volunteering in the development of the Five Cs (Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, and Caring) of positive youth development. The longitudinal quasi-experimental study design was used for the pilot evaluation of the intervention program. The study sample consisted of 615 adolescents assigned to intervention and control groups. The Latent Class Growth Analysis revealed that most program participants showed an increase in Competence, Connection, and Caring as well as maintained stable levels of Confidence and Character; whereas most non-participants showed a decrease in Competence, Confidence, and Character and maintained stable levels of Connection and Caring. The effect size estimation revealed large between-group program effects on Competence and Confidence and moderate effects on Character as well as moderate within-group time effects on all Five Cs. Thus, the intervention program Try Volunteering is an effective tool for fostering positive youth development.

  • Parenting, personality, and culture as predictors of perfectionism
    • Authors: Gail E. Walton; David R. Hibbard; Chris Coughlin; Diana D. Coyl-Shepherd
      Abstract: This study examined the relationship between parenting styles, personality traits, culture, and perfectionism. Male and female undergraduate university students from the US (n = 168) and the Middle East (n = 74) completed self-report measures regarding their perceptions of how they were parented, the Big Five Personality Inventory, and two multidimensional measures of perfectionism. As predicted, authoritarian and neglectful parenting was positively correlated with maladaptive forms of perfectionism; they were also positively correlated with personal standards, but only authoritarian parenting was significantly correlated with self-oriented perfectionism. In terms of personality and perfectionism, conscientiousness was positively correlated with adaptive dimensions of perfectionism (personal standards, organization, and self-oriented perfectionism), whereas emotional stability was negatively associated with the maladaptive dimensions of perfectionism (parental criticism, doubts about abilities, concerns about mistakes, and socially prescribed perfectionism). Parenting was more predictive than personality regarding parental expectations, parental criticism, and socially prescribed perfectionism, while personality was more predictive of doubts about abilities, concern over mistakes, personal standards, organization, and self-oriented perfectionism. Middle Eastern participants scored significantly higher than US participants on parental expectations and self-oriented perfectionism.

  • Men’s Sexual Sadism towards Women in Mozambique: Influence of
    • Authors: Germano Vera Cruz
      Abstract: The aim of this study is, first, to determine whether in Mozambique men who watch pornographic videos frequently behave more sadistically towards their female partners during sexual intercourse than those who watch pornographic videos relatively infrequently; and secondly, to know if pornography has an influence on men’s sexual behavior towards women. A total of 512 men and women participated in the study, responding to an original questionnaire, and were interviewed as well. Statistical processing of the data consisted of descriptive analysis (means and standard deviations), comparison of means (t-test) and correlation analyses. First, the results show that men’s frequent exposure to pornography is correlated to male sadistic behavior towards women. Second, the results show that, amongst male participants, being in love with one’s partners and being older correlate negatively with men’s sexual sadism toward women. Finally, there is an indication that in Mozambique pornography influences some men’s sexual behavior towards women in sadistic way, although more studies are needed to gauge to what extent.

  • Narcissism and selfie-posting behavior: the mediating role of body
           satisfaction and the moderating role of attitude toward selfie-posting
    • Authors: Yuhui Wang; Xiaochun Xie; Xingchao Wang; Pengcheng Wang; Jia Nie; Li Lei
      Abstract: Although recent studies have documented that narcissism is associated with selfie-posting behavior, little is known about the mediating and moderating mechanisms underlying this relation. The present study aimed to examine whether body satisfaction mediated the relation between narcissism and selfie-posting behavior, and whether this mediating process was moderated by attitude toward selfie-posting behavior. A sample of 382 Chinese young adults completed questionnaires on narcissism, body satisfaction, selfie-posting behavior, and attitude toward selfie-posting behavior. The results indicated that body satisfaction mediated the association between narcissism and selfie-posting behavior. In addition, attitude toward selfie-posting behavior moderated the relation between body satisfaction and selfie-posting behavior. Specifically, the path from body satisfaction to selfie-posting behavior was significant for individuals with positive attitude toward selfie-posting behavior, while it became nonsignificant for those with negative attitude. Findings of the present study highlight the significance of identifying the mechanisms that moderate the mediated paths between narcissism and selfie-posting behavior.

  • Bilingual witnesses are more susceptible to the misinformation effect in
           their less proficient language
    • Authors: Dustin P. Calvillo; Nicole V. Mills
      Abstract: The misinformation effect occurs when a witness views an event, is exposed to misleading post-event information, and remembers some misleading details as having occurred in the original event. The present study examined the effect of receiving post-event information and being tested in different languages on bilingual participants’ susceptibility to the misinformation effect. English-Spanish bilingual participants (N = 234; 78% claimed English was their dominant language) watched a video, read a post-event narrative in English or in Spanish, and then were tested on details of the video in English or in Spanish. Regardless of the language in which participants read the post-event narrative, participants who were tested in English correctly recognized more true details and falsely recognized fewer misinformation details than those tested in Spanish. These results suggest that bilingual participants are more susceptible to the misinformation effect in their less proficient language, a finding that has important implications for interviewing bilingual witnesses. Even when witnesses claim to be fluent in two languages, testing their memory in their less fluent language may result in fewer true memories and more false memories.

  • Enabling relations as determinants of self-satisfaction in the youth: The
           path from self-satisfaction to prosocial behaviors as explained by
           strength of inner self
    • Authors: Patricia Simon
      Abstract: The development of a positive self-concept is crucial for young people to flourish and thrive. Self-satisfaction stemming from a positive self-evaluation is assumed to be partially contingent upon the quality of relationships that the individual has with socialization agents. The ability to view oneself as worthy and valuable has the potential to translate to positive developmental outcomes including a desire to engage in prosocial behaviors. In this study, the association of youth’s enabling relations in different social contexts with their self-satisfaction was examined. Analysis of data from Filipino college youth (N = 1001) suggests that enabling relations within the family, school, peer, and community are factors related to self-satisfaction. Among these, relationships formed in school appeared to have the strongest association with self-satisfaction. Further analysis showed that self-satisfaction has direct effects on prosocial behaviors, and indirect effects through strength of inner self. Implications of the findings especially the importance of helping the youth achieve self-satisfaction are discussed.

  • Physiological arousal in athletes following repeated subconcussive impact
    • Authors: Caitlyn Gallant; Nicole Barry; Dawn Good
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between a novel measure of subconcussive impact exposure (SIE) in sports and physiological arousal. In particular, baseline arousal was examined as a potential mechanism of impairment. This research was conducted in the Jack and Nora Walker Lifespan Development Centre testing facilities at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Using a two-part longitudinal design, 77 university students (M age = 21.01, SD = 2.752, 40.3% male) of varying athletic status (25 high-risk, 28 low-risk, and 24 non-athletes) were tested individually at pre- and post-season. Electrodermal activation (EDA) was measured as an index of physiological arousal. Participants completed the Everyday Living Demographic Questionnaire (ELQ), from which a composite index of SIE was created consisting of athletic history questions. SIE significantly predicted pre- and post-season EDA. Additionally, high-risk and low-risk athletes had greater SIE than non-athletes, while low-risk and high-risk athletes did not differ in terms of SIE. These results are consistent with research demonstrating reduced physiological arousal after concussion, further illustrating the continuum of head injury severity, and indicating that EDA may be a non-invasive biomarker of SIE.

  • Use of text messages to increase positive affect and promote physical
           activity in patients with heart disease
    • Authors: Sean Legler; Christopher M. Celano; Eleanor E. Beale; Bettina B. Hoeppner; Jeff C. Huffman
      Abstract: Adherence to physical activity in patients with serious heart disease is critical to recovery and survival. In-person programs to promote activity in cardiac patients have been poorly attended, and increasingly patients are focused on mobile, self-management-based approaches to health. Accordingly, we completed a one-arm trial of a novel one-way 14-day text message intervention among 40 patients with a prior acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The two-pronged psychological-behavioral intervention alternated daily messages focused on promoting psychological well-being with messages providing specific education/advice regarding physical activity. All messages were successfully transmitted, and nearly all participants found the intervention to be helpful (n = 37; 92.5%) and performed at least one specific health-related action in response to a text message (n = 35; 87.5%). Post-intervention, participants had improvements in happiness (Cohen’s d = 0.25), determination (d = 0.37), depression (d = −0.01), and anxiety (d = −0.13), though not optimism. Moreover, participants reported an increase in moderate physical activity of 105 min/week (baseline: 261 [SD 265] minutes/week, follow-up: 366 [SD 519]; d = 0.25). These improvements were largely maintained two weeks later, with further increases in physical activity (414 [SD 570] minutes/week). Text messaging focused on well-being and physical activity was well-accepted and associated with improvements in activity and mental health in this high-risk clinical population.

  • Assessing environmental attitudes in Portugal using a new short version of
           the Environmental Attitudes Inventory
    • Authors: Rita B. Domingues; Gabriela Gonçalves
      Abstract: Most environmental problems are caused and/or enhanced by human behaviour; thus, it is crucial to understand environmental attitudes that underlie individual’s behaviour towards the environment. In Portugal, a highly vulnerable region to environmental change and serious local-scale natural hazards, environmental attitudes have never been systematically addressed. Therefore, the main goal of this study is to evaluate environmental attitudes in a Portuguese sample using the most appropriate short version of Milfont & Duckitt’s Environmental Attitudes Inventory (Journal of Environmental Psychology, 30(1) 80–94, 2010). Reliability and validity analyses showed that the 36-item version of the Environmental Attitudes Inventory (EAI-36) was more adequate than the 24-item version. Using EAI-36, preservation and utilisation emerged as orthogonal dimensions, forming the vertical structure of environmental attitudes, and were negatively and moderately correlated in the Portuguese sample, expressing an ecocentric viewpoint. Mean scores for the first- and second-order factors were similar to values from other developed countries. Differences in age, gender and study area were found, with older participants, women and individuals from the natural sciences showing higher levels on preservation and lower on utilisation.

  • Disordered eating in the context of Self-determination theory
    • Authors: Lucia Hricova; O. Orosova; M. Bacikova-Sleskova
      Abstract: The concept of self-determination has been found to be substantial in the context of disordered eating among women. There is a need to explore this concept deeper with the key role of body dissatisfaction and unhealthy weight control, while addressing both genders. For the prevention and early detection of disordered eating it is important to also investigate the risk factors in a non-clinical research sample. The aim of this work is to explain disordered eating while considering the role of body dissatisfaction, unhealthy weight control, basic psychological needs (general level of self-determination) and the regulation of eating behaviour (contextual level of self-determination). Three hundred two university students (52.3% of women, Mage = 21, SD = 2.15) reported on the explored variables. SEM was performed. The model fitted the data well and was statistically equivalent for men and women. As hypothesized, body dissatisfaction and unhealthy weight control were positively associated with disordered eating. The results have sustained the protective role of self-determination concept, mainly by revealing a negative indirect association between psychological needs and disordered eating. Unexpectedly, the autonomous regulation of eating correlated positively with disordered eating. In comparison to previous findings, this indicates that the autonomous motivation of eating may have a different effect on various types of disordered eating. This work provides a significant contribution to the exploration of disordered eating while emphasizing self-determination in general and at a contextual level. It could be beneficial in the prevention of disordered eating among university students of both genders, regarding the protective role of psychological needs.
