Handbook of motivation and cognition : foundations of social behavior by Richard M Sorrentino( Book )

54 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 1 challenges the prevailing hot/cold, either/or dichotomy, and proposes instead the "warm look"-- a synergistic approach to the roles of "hot" motivations and "cold" cognitions in the production of behavior. Highly acclaimed as a groundbreaking work, Contemporary Psychology called it, "an extremely valuable contribution to the field....Unique as a handbook...rather than summarizing an existing body of knowledge, it attempts to define and shape an emerging field." Volume 2 continues to emphasize both theory and research on the motivation-cognition interface. However, the range of approaches has been widened to include clinical, developmental, political, and cognitive psychological as well as the social and personality perspectives prominent in the first volume. Volume 3, like its acclaimed predecessors, presents timely, original work on the interface of motivation and cognition. Rather than looking at the self, affect, and goals as primarily intrapersonal variables, however, Volume 3 shifts its concern to the role of motivation and cognition in interpersonal and intergroup behavior. Reflecting an increasing awareness of the impact of intergroup strife in contemporary life, leading researchers and theorists of social relations discuss topics including how we use others to further evaluate the self; how the self affects our judgment of others; the role of stereotyping and prejudices; and how we evaluate and interact with ingroups and outgroups. --from book description, Amazon.com

The uncertain mind : individual differences in facing the unknown by Richard M Sorrentino( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book deals directly with how people cope with uncertainty. The authors show that while some people are relatively comfortable dealing with uncertainty and strive to resolve it (uncertainty-oriented), others are more likely to avoid uncertainty, preferring the familiar or the known (certainty-oriented). They go on to examine the implications of these orientations for understanding processes of self-knowledge, social cognition and attitude change, achievement, motivation and performance, interpersonal and group processes, and issues relating to physical and psychological health concerns. Research is discussed linking this uncertainty orientation to each of these issues, raising important practical and theoretical questions for each."--Jacket

Culture and social behavior by Richard M Sorrentino( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Culture and Social Behavior covers a range of topics from differences in basic cognitive processes to broad level cultural syndromes that pervade social arrangements, laws, and public representations. Leading researchers in the study of culture and psychology describe their work and their current perspective on the important questions facing the field. Pioneers in the field such as Harry Triandis and Michael Bond present their work, along with those who represent some newer approaches to the study of culture. Richard E. Nisbett concludes the book by discussing the historical development of the field and an examination of which aspects of culture are universal and which are culture-specific. By illustrating both the diversity and vitality of research on the psychology of culture and social behavior, the editors hope this volume will stimulate further research from psychologists of many cultural traditions."--Jacket
Trends and prospects in motivation research by Anastasia Efklides( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Researchers in achievement motivation are becoming all the more aware of the importance of affect in motivation and self-regulation. This leads to extension and integration of existing theories as well as to new theories that provide a good account of existing data and offer new insight into the mechanism underlying the functioning of motivation. This book presents up-to-date basic research in motivation and self-regulation and an overview of the field, with particular emphasis on issues such as change of motivation, effects of context and culture on motivation, relations of cognition and affect in motivation and self-regulation, and motivation in school, in sports, and in the aged

The leader's sense of legitimacy as a source of his constructive deviation( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An experiment was conducted to determine how persons placed in the position of 'leader' variously employ their legitimacy to exert influence through innovative deviation. Ss were 40 male undergraduates drawn from 52 who initially had come together in groups of at least 12 each to take part in a discussion of urban problems. They were then separated and each S was led to believe that he either had been appointed or elected leader of a team, and either as 'top choice' or 'third choice'. The team was allegedly meeting in another room to consider alternative action programs to alleviate urban problems. As leader, each S's task was to exercise his own judgment in setting the priorities for these action programs, after taking account of recommendations received as messages from other team members. The major dependent measure was the leader's rejection of these recommendations on critical trials, when presented with a reverse ordering of the true preference ranking obtained from pilot work with similar Ss. The results indicated that both source of authority and strength of endorsement affected the willingness of leaders to deviate from team choices, with 'elected' leaders significantly more inclined to manifest such deviation.

Performance in Women as a Function of Fear of Success and Sex-Role Orientation by Richard M Sorrentino( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present study was designed to test hypotheses derived from Horner's theory concerning the effect of the sex-role orientation of the situation on the arousal of the motive to avoid success in women. The study compared the performance of women high and low in the motive to avoid success in a male-oriented and a female-oriented situation. It was found that women performed significantly better (P.01) in the male-oriented than in the female-oriented situation, with this difference between conditions being greater for those women scoring high rather than low in the motive to avoid success (P.05). These results are inconsistent with an inhibitory anxiety explanation of motive to avoid success. The possibility that the measure of this motive may in part be a measure of ability is discussed.
