  • Self-determined immortality: Testing the role of autonomy in promoting
           perceptions of symbolic immortality and well-being

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This pre-registered work was designed to replicate and extend previous research finding that autonomy is associated with greater extent of belief in symbolic immortality (feeling that some aspect of an individual will endure and/or be remembered long after death). Study 1 (n = 1185) replicated this prior work, finding that self-reported autonomy predicted extent of belief in symbolic immortality, which mediated the relationship between autonomy and meaning in life. Study 2 (n = 117) provided an experimental extension of Study 1, finding that reading about an individual with an autonomous (vs. controlled) life increased perceptions of that individual’s symbolic immortality, which mediated the relationship between reading about the autonomous life and perceptions of the individual’s satisfaction with life. Study 3 (n = 175) replicated the results of Study 2 and also showed that the extent to which people viewed the target individual as feeling autonomous predicted perceptions of that individual’s symbolic immortality even after controlling for perceived self-esteem.

  • Five reasons to cry—FRC: a taxonomy for common antecedents of
           emotional crying

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Human beings are probably the only creatures with a capacity to shed emotional tears. While prior work has mostly used data-driven approaches to identify situational antecedents of adult crying, we present a theory-based taxonomy. Assuming that crying is preceded by the frustration or satisfaction of psychological needs, we postulate that the most common antecedents of crying can be organized into five categories—that is, the Five Reasons to Cry (FRC): loneliness, impotence, overload, harmony, and media. Testing our assumptions in a retrospective study (N = 720, pre-registered) and a thirty-day electronic diary study (N = 91) showed that (i) crying episodes could be reliably assigned to the FRC, (ii) the theorized relations to frustrated/satisfied psychological needs emerged, and (iii) the categories were systematically related to subjective well-being, indicating their criterion validity. In sum, this research provides a valid taxonomy of common situational antecedents of adult emotional crying.

  • Pathogen disgust sensitivity: Individual differences in pathogen
           perception or pathogen avoidance'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The emotion disgust motivates the avoidance of pathogens and contaminants. Individuals differ in their tendency to experience disgust and this is referred to as pathogen disgust sensitivity. Yet, it remains unclear which differences in psychological processes are captured by pathogen disgust sensitivity. We tested two hypotheses about how the information processing structure underlying pathogen avoidance might give rise to individual differences in pathogen disgust sensitivity. Participants (n = 998) rated the perceived health of individuals with or without facial blemishes and indicated how comfortable they would feel about having physical contact with them. For participants with high disgust sensitivity, facial blemishes were more indicative of poor health and perceived health was more strongly related to comfort with physical contact. These findings suggest that pathogen disgust sensitivity reflects individual differences in the tendency to interpret stimuli as an infection risk and the weight given to estimated infection risk when deciding who should be approached or avoided.

  • The role of daily need crafting in daily fluctuations in adolescents’
           need-based and affective experiences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Based on self-determination theory, this diary study examined associations between adolescents’ daily need crafting and daily fluctuations in their need-based and affective experiences. We also examined the role of daily perceived autonomy-supportive parenting in adolescents’ daily need-crafting. Adolescents (N = 159; Mage = 15.56; 62% female) filled out a diary for seven consecutive days. Multilevel path analyses indicated that need crafting varied on a day-to-day basis, with daily need crafting relating positively to daily positive affect and negatively to negative affect. The benefits of daily need crafting were accounted for by higher daily need satisfaction and lower need frustration. Further, on days adolescents perceived more parental autonomy support, they reported more need satisfaction and less need frustration, an effect that was partially due to higher need crafting that day. Overall, the results suggest that need crafting represents a critical pro-active skill, with resulting benefits for adolescents’ daily need-based experiences and well-being.

  • Positive affect predicts engagement in healthy behaviors within a day, but
           not across days

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Identifying causes of healthy behaviors is important for harnessing health benefits. A growing body of experience sampling research suggests that positive emotion may drive these behaviors. However, it is not known how long elevations in positive emotion facilitate these behaviors in daily life. The present study tested how time between signals moderates the association between within-person positive affect and healthy behaviors. A sample of 197 college students completed a 10-day experience sampling diary, with 5 signals a day, measuring affect and healthy behaviors. We replicated results from Nylocks and colleagues (2018) finding that within-person positive affect predicted engagement in healthy behaviors; however, this association was only significant within the same day, and not across days (i.e. overnight). Taken together, these findings highlight the importance of considering positive affect, rather than negative affect in patients with psychopathology, to improve behavioral interventions targeted to increase engagement in healthy behaviors.

  • Self-determined profiles of academic motivation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study was designed to investigate academic motivation profiles (and their similarity) among distinct samples of high school students. Anchored in recent developments in self-determination theory, these profiles were estimated while considering both the global and specific nature of academic motivation. The role of fixed mindsets and parenting practices in predicting profile membership, as well as the implications of these profiles for several outcomes, were also investigated. Latent profile analysis revealed five profiles (weakly motivated, moderately motivated, self-determined, amotivated, and strongly motivated) differing in global and specific motivation levels. Fixed mindset was weakly related to profile membership, perceived parenting practices showed more widespread associations. Most desirable outcomes were linked to the self-determined and strongly motivated profiles, and then to the moderately motivated, weakly motivated, and amotivated profiles.

  • Marie Curie vs. Serena Williams: ambition leads to extremism through
           obsessive (but not harmonious) passion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Extremism occurs when a certain need, for instance, significance quest, overrides other human motivations. Based on the Significance Quest Theory, we argue that ambition—a specific aspect of significance quest—can lead to extremism, particularly through obsessive passion. In an Italian sample (Study 1, N = 249) we predicted and found that ambition was positively related to both obsessive and harmonious passion; however, only obsessive passion positively predicted extremism. To bolster and generalize our findings we conducted a second study involving American participants (Study 2, N = 300). We confirmed the mediating role of obsessive passion in the relationship between ambition and extremism, while we did not find the mediating role of harmonious passion. The present research has theoretical implications in that it constitutes the first evidence that ambition might share some aspects with significance quest and sheds new light on ambition field. Moreover, our findings provide practical ways to prevent extremism.

  • From aesthetics to ethics: Testing the link between an emotional
           experience of awe and the motive of quixoteism on (un)ethical behavior

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract According to the awe-quixoteism hypothesis, one experience of awe may lead to the engagement in challenging actions aimed at increasing the welfare of the world. However, what if the action involves damaging one individual' Across four experiments (N = 876), half participants were induced to feel either awe or a different (pleasant, activating, or neutral-control) emotion, and then decided whether achieving a prosocial goal (local vs. global). In the first three experiments this decision was assessed through a dilemma that involved to sacrifice one individual’s life, additionally in Experiments 2 and 3 we varied the quality of the action (ordinary vs. challenging). In Experiment 4, participants decided whether performing a real helping action. Overall, in line with the awe-quixoteism hypothesis, the results showed that previously inducing awe enhanced the willingness to sacrifice someone (Experiments 1, 2 and 3) or the acceptance to help (Experiment 4) when the decision involved engaging in challenges aimed at improving the welfare of the world.

  • Out of the shell, into the world: preferences for openness as a substrate
           of approach motivation and positive affect

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Whether to engage with the environment or not is critical to self-regulation and individual differences figure prominently in this decisional realm. The present studies (total N = 695) pursue the premise that important clues to these dynamics can be found by asking individuals whether they prefer the spatial concept of something (e.g., the self or the world) being “closed” or “open”, given that open objects interact with their environments more readily and lend themselves to resource acquisition. Individual differences in open-closed preferences were reliable and informative concerning individual differences in motivation and personality. In particular, greater preferences for openness were linked to higher levels of extraversion (Study 1), approach motivation (Studies 1 and 2), and positive affect (Studies 2 and 3). In addition, such preferences were linked to vigorous goal pursuit and achievement in a daily diary protocol (Study 3). Simple preferences among spatial concepts can therefore provide key insights into personality and self-regulation.

  • Sequential modulations of emotional effects on cognitive performance in
           young and older adults

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The present study brings evidence of a new type of emotional processes, namely sequential modulations of emotional effects, and how these processes change during aging. Sequential modulations of emotional effects refer to the changes in emotional effects (i.e., differences in performance between current negative and positive items) as a function of emotional valence of the immediately preceding items. Young (18–30-year-olds) and older adults (62–89-year-olds) were presented neutral, positive, and negative pictures and had to determine whether each of these pictures included humans or not. Differences in emotional effects were found after negative and neutral items whereas they were absent after positive items in young adults. Moreover, age-related differences in sequential modulations of emotional effects revealed that young and older adults modulated emotional effects to the same extent after negative items, but older adults showed reverse sequential modulations after positive items. These findings have important implications to further our understanding of the sequential modulations of emotion during aging.

  • Correction to: A psychophysiological investigation of mourning: There are
           two sides to the story

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mourning constitutes an important human emotion, which might cause—among other things—major depressive symptoms when lasting for too long. To date, no study investigated whether mourning is related to specific psychophysiological activation patterns. Therefore, we examined physiological reactions induced by iconographic mourning-related stimuli in comparison to neutral and attachment stimuli in healthy adults (N = 77, mean age: 21.9). We evaluated pupillometric and eye-tracking parameters as well as heart rate variability (HRV) and skin conductance (EDA). Eye-tracking revealed a stronger dilated pupil during mourning in comparison to the neutral, but not to the attachment condition; furthermore, fixation patterns revealed less fixations on mourning stimuli. While HF HRV was reduced during mourning and attachment, we found no differences concerning EDA parameters between conditions. Results suggest specific eye-movement and pupil adaptations during representations of mourning, which might point toward inward cognition or avoidance, but no specific physiological pattern concerning HRV and EDA.

  • Off the mark: Repetitive marking undermines essay evaluations due to
           boredom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Essay-style assessment is widespread in education. Nonetheless, research shows that this tool can suffer from low reliability and validity. We attribute this problem partly to the boredom that marking multiple essays causes. Specifically, we propose that boredom in markers is associated with systematically lower marks on essays. To test this, we asked participants (N = 100) with an undergraduate degree to mark essays. The majority of these participants had at least some experience with marking. After marking each essay, participants indicated how bored they were. We found an increase in boredom over time and that higher boredom was associated with lower marks. Furthermore, offering a marking rubric did not prevent this problematic impact of boredom. These findings have implications for the validity of essays as an assessment tool and raise concerns about repetitive marking practices in general.

      Abstract: Abstract Why does sibling abuse affect some adolescents more severely than others' When and how does its experience at home influence the psychosocial behavior of adolescents at school' Guided by the Conservation of Resources Theory (CoRT), the authors established a moderated-mediation model to find answers to these under-researched questions. Specifically, they analyzed the effects of sibling abuse on victimized adolescents’ in-school delinquency through psychological distress and psychological disengagement. Victim’s neurotic personality, which may intensify the spillover process, was examined as well. Forty-seven Pakistani middle adolescents from a private secondary school provided a survey-based time-lagged data over five consecutive school-days. Results revealed that the next day after experiencing sibling abuse, victims first felt psychologically distressed and then psychologically disengaged from school, and ultimately carried out delinquent activities on campus. Furthermore, neuroticism did not significantly change the effect of sibling abuse on outcome variables. This study contributes toward a more comprehensive understanding of the abuse–delinquency chain as a complex psychological process underpinned by CoRT.

  • Associations between GAD symptom severity and error monitoring depend on
           neural quenching variability

      Abstract: Abstract Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) has been inconsistently associated with exaggerated threat monitoring measured via the error-related negativity (ERN). This suggests the need to consider whether the link between GAD and ERN is influenced by additional processes, such as cognitive inhibition of non-threat. The current study explored this possibility by employing a novel, trait-like measure of cognitive processing inhibition, neural quenching (NQ). Electroencephalography was recorded while 16 adults diagnosed with GAD and 14 age-matched healthy controls viewed angry and neutral faces prior to individual trials of a flanker task. NQ was generated to aversive (angry) and non-aversive (neutral) facial primes, and the ERN was generated to incorrect and correct responses on the flanker task. We tested the hypothesis that higher GAD symptom severity would be associated with larger-magnitude ERN when NQ to non-aversive was enhanced (higher levels of non-aversive processing inhibition), but with blunted ERN when NQ to non-aversive was also blunted (lower levels of non-aversive processing inhibition). Overall, greater NQ to non-aversive faces was associated with larger-magnitude ERNs. As predicted, higher GAD symptom severity was associated with blunted ERN when accompanied by blunted NQ to non-aversive. Findings suggest that exaggerated threat processing is not uniform in GAD and may depend on individual differences in the ability to inhibit processing of non-aversive and other types of information.

  • Outrage fatigue' Cognitive costs and decisions to blame

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Across nine studies (N = 1672), we assessed the link between cognitive costs and the choice to express outrage by blaming. We developed the Blame Selection Task, a binary free-choice paradigm that examines individuals’ propensity to blame transgressors (versus an alternative choice)—either before or after reading vignettes and viewing images of moral transgressions. We hypothesized that participants’ choice to blame wrongdoers would negatively relate to how cognitively inefficacious, effortful, and aversive blaming feels (compared to the alternative choice). With vignettes, participants approached blaming and reported that blaming felt more efficacious. With images, participants avoided blaming and reported that blaming felt more inefficacious, effortful, and aversive. Blame choice was greater for vignette-based transgressions than image-based transgressions. Blame choice was positively related to moral personality constructs, blame-related norms, and perceived efficacy of blaming, and inversely related to perceived effort and aversion of blaming. The BST is a valid behavioral index of blame propensity, and choosing to blame is linked to its cognitive costs.

  • Social emotional ability development (SEAD): An integrated model of
           practical emotion-based competencies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Social emotional abilities (i.e., specific skills), defined as the set of cognitive abilities, emotion-based knowledge, and behavioral competencies (i.e., skill levels) that facilitate adaptively employing prosocial processes and behaviors (i.e., “actions”), such as emotional regulation and sympathetic and empathetic response behaviors, is contemporarily modeled and measured as emotional intelligence. This conceptualization can be problematic, however, as the two concepts are not the same and traditional methods of measuring emotional intelligence can have limited practical utility. The social emotional ability development (SEAD) theoretical model introduced in this treatise represents a pragmatic and simplified approach to the development of social emotional ability and competency as abstracted from constructs of emotional intelligence, social intelligence, and sociocultural learning theory. Further, the SEAD model reaches beyond the individual as the unit of analysis to explore, conceptualize, differentiate, investigate, and define the hierarchal, bi-directional, and contextual nature of the dimensions of social emotional ability within close relationships. Implications for how the SEAD model can be used by researchers, practitioners, educators, individuals, families, and couples across a broad spectrum of domains and interventions are discussed.
