  • Thinner bodies are preferred in China compared to Britain but are not seen
           as healthier

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Differences in preferences for body size between cultures are well documented. A well known explanation is that differences are a result of psychological adaptation to local environments. Since the optimal body size (often measured as Body Mass Index/BMI, weight divided by squared height kg/m2) for health differs between areas, the attractiveness and health judgements should also be different. Until now, no study has directly tested whether the difference in attractiveness perception is accompanied by a difference in health perception. In the current study, we compared the attractiveness and health judgements of male and female bodies varying in BMI and muscularity between British and Chinese participants. Since the health risks are greater for Chinese than British individuals with increasing BMI, one may expect Chinese participants to perceive a lower BMI as more attractive and healthier than British participants. Analyses showed that, although the Chinese participants preferred thinner partners compared to their British counterparts, there was no difference in the health judgements made by Chinese and British participants. Moreover, the male and female bodies that were seen as most attractive were thinner than those perceived as most healthy by Chinese participants. These findings challenge the adaptation account that people adjust their mate preferences to match what is most healthy in local environments.

      Abstract: Abstract Fei Xiaotong proposed a grade structure to explain that interpersonal relationships in China are self-centered and gradually move outward through kinship. As a clue to connecting a family, how does this kinship affect the growth of individuals, especially children' This study examined the roles of different kinship supports in left-behind children’s behavioral problems based on cognitive behavior therapy. According to their current family structure, the participants were divided into left-behind and non-left-behind children. Data from 852 participants indicated that for left-behind children, the support of parents and grandparents could affect internal aggression/external aggression through depression/anxiety, and the help of other relatives could also directly and positively affect external aggression, whereas for non-left-behind children, only parental support affected children’s internal aggressive behavior by affecting depression. The results revealed the internal mechanism of kinship support on children’s aggressive behavior from the perspective of cognitive behavior theory.

  • Influencers on YouTube: a quantitative study on young people’s use and
           perception of videos about political and societal topics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The roles of YouTube videos and YouTubers for getting information about political and societal topics are becoming gradually more important to young people. Quantitative research about young people’s use and perception of YouTube-videos and their potential effects on opinion formation is sparse though. This cross-sectional quantitative study addresses this empirical gap. We examined young people’s analytic-critical evaluations of YouTubers and their videos about political and societal topics (YTPS-videos), and how these are affected by the young people’s age and gender. We analysed questionnaire data of 562 participants and divided them into three different age groups. Overall, the participants reported a moderate watching frequency of YTPS-videos. They also rated YTPS-videos as moderately credible and considered specific characteristics of YTPS-videos and their producers as being moderately indicative for fake news. When comparing to traditional TV news, YTPS-videos were perceived as more entertaining, emotional, funny, exciting, modern, and motivating but also as more subjective and manipulating. Regarding YouTubers, the participants ascribed them an important role model function, but criticised them for handling it rather irresponsibly. Concerning opinion formation processes, the participants reported of a rather unimportant role of YTPS-videos for their learning about political and societal topics. They also perceived themselves as less influenceable than other peers and younger people. Still, they prefer talking with friends instead of teachers about YTPS-videos. Age and gender also had effects on various scales. These results deliver essential data for future research and educational measures and opened up unexplored areas in this research field.

  • Early appraisal of the first iteration of a self-development and
           personality exploration programme (DEEPdown)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper concerns the early-phase development of a group self-development and personality exploration programme (DEEPdown) grounded in the Five Factor Model. A university pilot study wherein students completed the first iteration of the DEEPdown programme (n = 29), and a clinician survey (n = 36) were undertaken in parallel. University students completed feedback forms and focus groups; clinicians viewed a video summary. Data were analysed using quantitative and thematic analysis. Students consistently reported various positive experiences (e.g. space to reflect) and helpful in-session events (e.g. normative personality education). Their mean satisfaction level was 4.5 out of 5 (SD = 0.51), and in response to “I would recommend DEEPdown to friends and/or family”, 50% strongly agreed and 50% agreed. 27 of 29 students completed the 7-week programme. Clinician feedback was mostly favourable (e.g. 78% indicated that they would consider DEEPdown training), yet caution was also indicated (e.g. only 61% would recommend DEEPdown to a client). Key identified outcomes across both studies included greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-compassion. Concerns surrounding insufficient session duration and content complexity arose in both studies. DEEPdown (iteration 1) was broadly acceptable to both students and clinicians. While further refinement and empirical evaluations in different settings are needed, DEEPdown has the potential to positively impact upon important aspects of well-being. To encourage collaboration from the scientific community, we have released DEEPdown as an open source intervention that is freely usable, modifiable, and empirically testable without author permission; all programme content is available on an open source platform (https://osf.io/9eysm/).

  • Childhood trauma, depressive symptoms and rational /irrational beliefs: A
           moderated mediation model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The current study focuses on the vulnerability role of irrational beliefs and the protective role of rational beliefs in the relationship between childhood trauma and depressive symptoms in a sample of Turkish undergraduate students (N = 338). The findings provide additional evidence to diathesis-stress model of rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT). The findings indicate that irrational beliefs play moderating roles in the relationships between childhood trauma and depressive symptoms. Irrational beliefs, especially the secondary irrational thinking process, also mediate the relationship between childhood trauma and depressive symptoms. The indirect effect of childhood trauma on depressive symptoms via irrational beliefs may change depending upon the level of rational beliefs. The theoretical contributions and clinical implications of this study are discussed in detail.

  • Combatting carelessness: Can placement of quality check items help reduce
           careless responses'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is extensive literature on identifying careless responses in survey data and acknowledging their negative impact on accurate data analysis (Goodman, Cryder, & Cheema, 2013; Huang et al., 2015a, b; Meade and Craig, 2012). However, there are very limited findings on how researchers can help prevent participants from responding carelessly in the first place. The current study manipulated the placement of a quality check item (i.e., early placement versus late placement) and showed that participants were less likely to carelessly respond when the quality check items were placed later in the survey. Quality check items were also able to identify careless responses more than other approaches (i.e., LongString index, completion time index, and self-reported indicators). When using quality check items, it appears to be best when used toward the end of the survey. There are plenty of opportunities for future studies to expand on this research to uncover ways that can help deter careless responding.

  • Contamination fear in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic: A moderated
           mediation quasi-experimental model of the effect of disgust on outgroup
           bias towards diaspora

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Disgust sensitivity plays a key role in generating and maintaining outgroup biases. To test our hypotheses, we used a quasi-experimental between-subjects design, in which participants were randomly assigned to a disgust induction condition (N = 102) or a non-induction neutral group (N = 92). The induction scenario featured the return of the diaspora to their home country due to COVID-19 concerns. In one scenario, the diaspora lied about the country they arrived from, and in the other, there was no moral transgression. We hypothesized that the effect of disgust sensitivity on dehumanization and aggressive tendencies passed through contamination fear and the moderated mediation model indicated that this indirect effect was stronger for participants in the disgust-induction than in the non-induction group. This effect was found for biological dehumanization and passive aggression outcomes, both related to outgroup bias. Consistent with the role of disgust as a disease-avoidance mechanism, our results suggest that disgust could facilitate stronger outgroup bias in the context of a high health threat, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Understanding the association between parental attachment and loneliness
           among adolescents: The mediating role of self-esteem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The literature highlights that there is a negative relationship between parental attachment and loneliness. However, little is known about the possible mechanisms underlying the relationship between them. Therefore, the current study intended to fill the gap in the literature by investigating whether self-esteem mediated the relationship between parental attachment and loneliness among adolescents. It was also tested whether the proposed model differed according to sex and changed with age. Using a cross-sectional design, the current study was conducted with a sample of 406 adolescents (209 female/ 197 male; Meanage = 15.97, SDage = 1.05, range = 14–18). The findings of the study showed that loneliness was negatively associated with parental attachment and self-esteem. Also, a higher quality of attachment to parents was associated with greater self-esteem. The findings also demonstrated that self-esteem served as a mediator variable in the relationship between parental attachment and loneliness among adolescents. Lastly, the multiple-group analyses demonstrated that the nature of the relationships between the investigated variables did not vary with adolescents’ age and sex. This picture suggests that adolescents with low parental attachment have a higher risk of developing lower level self-esteem, which may, in turn, lead to loneliness.

  • Coping with minority stress in romantic relationships among lesbian, gay
           and bisexual people

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Minority Stress in lesbian, gay, and bisexual people (LGBs) might have detrimental effects on relationship satisfaction. However, less is known regarding the potential mechanisms among the association above in LGBs’ romantic relationships. In the present study, we investigated the spillover and buffering impact of minority stress on relationship satisfaction among LGB individuals. A targeted sampling strategy was used to recruit LGBs (N= 1481) for a cross-sectional, online survey. Participants (M age = 35.05 years; 53% men) completed a survey that captured minority stress (i.e., internalized homonegativity, stigma consciousness, and concealment of sexual orientation); intra-/extra-dyadic stress and dyadic coping; and relationship satisfaction. Rigorous latent moderated structural equations was used to test associations between variables. Results indicated that the final model demonstrated acceptable fit. Minority stress was negatively associated with relationship satisfaction only via heightened intra-dyadic stress. Dyadic coping moderated the spillover effect between minority stress and intra-dyadic stress. This study highlights the importance of investigating dyadic coping in romantic relationships in LGBs to gain an insight into these relationships and the associated processes. It has important clinical and social implications for the development and evaluation of multi-level interventions.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The main goal of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the COVID Stress Scales (CSS) in the Palestinian context and the factorial structure of the instrument. The CSS, a newly emerging internationally standardized measure of stress related to being exposed to or contracting COVID-19, was translated and validated for a Palestinian context to ensure that it can be used to measure COVID-19 stress. The sample of the study consisted of 860 Palestinian adults living in the West Bank of Palestine. Participants’ age ranged from 20 to 48 years old (M = 34.7, SD =13.46). They were all recruited from online advertisements, e-mail campaigns, blogs, social media, and SMS campaigns. The CSS was found to be valid in the Arabic language within a Palestinian context. The confirmatory factor analysis yielded six factors: (1) Fears about the dangerousness of COVID-19, (2) fears about the personal social, and economic consequences of COVID-19, fears of disruption in the supply chain, fears of looting or rioting, (3) COVID-19-xenophobia, fears that foreigners are sources of COVID-19, (4) fears about sources of COVID-19-related contamination,(5) traumatic stress symptoms related to COVID-19, and (6) COVID-19-related checking which is consisting with the ordinal structure the scale. The CSS demonstrated a high level of validity and reliability in a Palestinian context and therefore can be considered for future studies as the COVID-19 pandemic persists. Further investigations using the Arabic Language of CSS may have far-reaching implications for measuring and combating the stress of COVID-19 at a personal and societal level for uniquely at-risk populations such as in the occupied territories of Palestine.

  • Effects of restraining measures due to COVID-19: Pre- and post-lockdown
           cognitive status and mental health

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted all countries to adopt restraining measures to mitigate the spread of the disease. Usually, large-scale disasters tend to be accompanied by significant increases of psychological distress, depression and anxiety. Confinement measures imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to have similar consequences. In the present study we aim to evaluate how COVID-19 affected the overall psychological functioning of Portuguese individuals by providing a comparison of current data with status prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. The study sample was composed of 150 cognitively healthy participants. Results show an overall maintenance of cognitive capacities, although subjective cognitive decline complaints significantly increased during the pandemic. Regarding mental health, restraining measures culminated in an aggravation of depressive and decrease of the perceived quality of life, associated with feelings of loneliness and perceived social isolation. Finally, higher levels of pre-COVID-19 quality of life seem to play a protective role against depression and anxiety and predict less difficulties in emotion regulation, feelings of solitude and cognitive complaints. In sum, confinement due to COVID-19 implied an aggravation of the mental health of the Portuguese population, which appears to have been attenuated in those with higher pre-pandemic levels of perceived quality of life.

  • Sports and mathematical abilities in primary school-aged children: How
           important are spatial abilities' An explorative study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract It is well known that sports and mathematical abilities are related to spatial abilities, also a relation between sport and mathematical abilities is assumed. However, the relation between all three aspects has not been investigated until now. Therefore, the main goal of the study is to examine the relationship between sport, spatial and mathematical ability in elementary school aged children. 50 boys and 42 girls from third grade solved spatial and sport tasks, which can be differentiated into the following: intrinsic-dynamic, intrinsic-static and extrinsic-static. Furthermore, their performances in mathematical (separated into numerical/arithmetical and geometrical) abilities were analyzed. The results showed significant correlations between the static spatial and sporting activities. This correlation is due to the strong correlation within the group of girls. Furthermore, a good performance in the intrinsic-spatial ability was related to a high geometrical ability of the children, especially in boys. However, the geometrical ability could not be predicted by sport abilities.

  • Adaptation and validation of the Arabic version of the short
           depression-happiness scale

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Short Depression Happiness Scale (SDHS) was developed to simultaneously assess depression and happiness on the opposite ends of the emotional valence continuum. The present study aimed to investigate and further validate the factor structure of the SDHS in a convenience sample of a large Arabic-speaking community. As part of an online survey, participants (n = 656) completed the SDHS, the Satisfaction with Life Scale, the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale-21 and the Ten-Item Personality Inventory. To independently perform exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), the data were randomly split into two halves. The results of the EFA and CFA provided a one-factor solution as the satisfactory-fitting model for the scale (X2 = 43.39, df = 9, p < .001; CIMIN/DF = 4.82, CFI = .94, TLI = .91, RMSEA = .11, SRMR = .05). The convergent validity of the SDHS was confirmed via the relationships with life satisfaction, depression, anxiety, stress and personality traits (correlations ranged between .23 and − .72). The SDHS explained unique variance (Δr2 = ranged between .06 and .23%) in well-being indicators above and beyond the personality traits. The Arabic translation of the SDHS was consistent with the original solution that would facilitate the advancement of happiness research across cultures.

  • The association of physical fitness with mental health in children: A
           serial multiple mediation model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is growing interest in the association between physical fitness and mental health. This study aimed to extend current knowledge by investigating the potential mediating roles of resilience and anxiety in the association between physical fitness and mental health in children. A total of 269 children were selected by stratified random sampling from three primary schools in China. Physical fitness was scored using the Chinese National Student Physical Fitness Standard. Resilience, anxiety, and mental health data were collected using the following questionnaires: Resilience Scale for Chinese Adolescents, Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children, and the Mental Health Test. The PROCESS macro developed by Hayes was used to conduct serial multiple mediation analysis. We found that physical fitness, resilience, anxiety, and mental health were significantly correlated. Children with higher physical fitness had lower mental health problems; however, this statistical significance was not detectable after controlling for resilience and anxiety. Serial multiple mediation analysis revealed that the association of physical fitness with mental health was partially mediated by resilience and anxiety. These results indicate that the positive association of physical fitness with mental health in children may be changed through resilience and anxiety, which appear to play serial multiple mediating roles in this association. These findings contribute to deeper understanding of the associations between these factors and suggest that promoting physical fitness independent of considering resilience and anxiety may be insufficient to achieve good mental health in children.

  • Beliefs in COVID-19 conspiracy theories, compliance with the preventive
           measures, and trust in government medical officials

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID -19 pandemic represents a global health crisis, so adherence to government guidelines and public health advice is critical in reducing transmission rates. Despite this, it has been reported that a minority of people do not comply with the governmental guidelines. When considering the reasons why some people do not comply with preventive measures, previous studies have shown that beliefs in COVID-19 conspiracy theories negatively predict responsible pandemic-related behaviour. This, in turn, could seriously undermine success in combating the pandemic. Our aim was, therefore, to further investigate the relationship between conspiracy beliefs and adherence to official COVID-19 medical guidelines by including mediating roles of beliefs in pseudoscientific information and trust in government officials. A total of 1882 adults from Croatia provided sociodemographic information and completed several scales related to COVID-19 conspiracy beliefs, beliefs in pseudoscientific information, trust in government officials, and adherence to official COVID-19 guidelines. A multiple mediation analysis revealed a direct negative effect of COVID-19 conspiracy beliefs on compliance with the preventive measures. In addition, conspiracy beliefs were indirectly related to compliance via trust in government officials. The present study builds upon emerging research showing that conspiracy beliefs may have significant social consequences and pose a potential risk to public health. Practical implications of these findings are discussed further.

  • Pornographic jealousy: Scale construction and theory testing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this research was to create a pornographic jealousy scale, determine its construct validity, and compare pornographic jealousy with the jealousy caused by a human rival. Jealousy is defined as the negative emotion created by the loss or possible loss of a romantic partner to a rival. Thus, jealousy involves three participants: the person, the person’s romantic partner, and a rival. We suggested the rival may be the romantic partner’s use of pornography. We wrote 25 items which seemed to measure pornographic jealousy. College students in heterosexual relationships (n = 307; 71.9% women) responded to the items and other measures. Analysis of the scale structure resulted in a 24 item measure with three subscales: Relationship Threat, Masturbation Disgust, and Self-Esteem Threat Pornographic Jealousy. The construct validity of the Pornographic Jealousy Scale was supported by positive correlations with the Interpersonal Jealousy Scale, Problematic Pornography Scale, and Perceptions of Partner Problematic Use Scale and negative correlations with the Frequency of Pornography Use Scale and Perceptions of Partner Frequency of Use Scale. According to the social cognitive theory of jealousy, loss of a partner to a rival involves both loss of relationship rewards (e.g., sex) and self-esteem. Pornographic jealousy seems to differ from the jealousy caused by a human rival in that it appears to threaten self-esteem more than relationship rewards.

  • Coparenting matters: The mediating effect of implicit theories of
           intelligence and depression on the relation between coparental conflict
           and STEM self-efficacy among Chinese adolescents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educators worldwide are concerned about how to engage sufficient students to choose STEM majors and careers. STEM self-efficacy was found to be critical in promoting an individual’s career choice in STEM. While the importance of family factors (coparental conflict) in learning has been increasingly emphasized, little empirical research has examined the effects of coparenting conflict on STEM self-efficacy among adolescents. Based on ecological and family system theories, this study aimed to examine the parallel mediation effect of implicit theories of intelligence and depression between conflict and Chinese adolescents’ STEM self-efficacy. In total, 443 Chinese tenth-grade students (209 males, 47.20%) completed an online survey. The model was investigated using a structural equation modelling approach with bootstrapping techniques (bootstrap replications: 5,000) using AMOS 23. The results indicated that the relationship between coparental conflict and adolescents’ STEM self-efficacy was not significant. The association between coparental conflict and STEM self-efficacy was fully mediated by depression. The mediating effect of implicit theories of intelligence was not significant. The results highlight the value of family factors, such as coparental conflict, in adolescents’ STEM self-efficacy and provide insight into the underlying process. The findings of this study may provide evidence for designing STEM education programs.
