Establishing the reliability and validity of the Stalking Myth Scale - revised by Amanda Lee Pastuszak( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Misconceptions about intimate aggression have been found to have serious consequences (Kamphius et al., 2005; Robinson, 2005). These beliefs serve to minimize the crime and blame the victim which can cause individuals to not take the crime seriously (Kamphius, et al., 2005; Sinclair, in press). Initial work combined and updated Sinclair's (2010) Stalking Myths Scale and McKeon's unpublished Stalking Attitudes Questionnaire, but further psychometric analysis is needed (Lyndon, Sinclair, & Martin, 2011). I surveyed 1,200 undergraduates using the Stalking Myth Scale –Revised (SMS – R), a modified version of the Obsessive Relational Intrusion Inventory – Short Form (ORI - SF; Cupach & Spitzberg, 2004), and three intimate partner aggression myth scales. My findings replicated the factor structure of the previous pilot and attitudes regarding stalking were found to be predictors of the likelihood to engage in, the perceived normativity of, and the perceived motivation behind stalking

Do social norms or self-interest rule? Comparing the power of social norms and targets of prejudice on symbolic prejudice in a group discussion by William Thomas Cockrell( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined how social norms and confrontations by targets of prejudice influence opinions of gay rights. During an experimental discussion participants were assigned to a 2 (Target: gay target present vs. Christian non-target present) x 2 (Social Support: no group support vs. support from 3 confederates) design. Dependent variables included participants’ public votes on gay rights policies, private post-discussion attitudes, and post-discussion reactions toward the discussion. Results showed that participants exposed to a group showed greater public endorsement of gay-rights than those interacting with the target alone. Gay targets facilitated greater public advocacy for gay rights than Christian targets, despite reporting more negative reactions post-discussion. Overall, participants became more pro-gay rights after the discussion, regardless of condition. These results support the role of social norms in reducing prejudice but also suggest that, contrary to the self-interest rule, targets of prejudice may garner greater support by standing up for their rights

Word frequency and the recall-recognition paradox by Willie Brown( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When people predict recognition performance, they wrongly predict that high frequency words will produce better recognition than low frequency words. To examine whether familiarity was the heuristic behind these inaccurate predictions, participants saw some words prior to study to increase their familiarity. We found that familiarity influences predictions, but word frequency has the greater influence. Research has shown that these inaccurate predictions can be corrected with test experience. Subsequent predictions are more accurate, but it is unclear whether participants learn that low frequency words are always better for memory or that participants had learned that low frequency words are only better for recognition and high frequency words are better for recall. We resolved this issue by giving a forced-choice recognition test after the single-item recognition test to determine what participants learned after the first test, and we found that participants learned that low frequency words facilitate recognition but not recall
Survival processing in the retroactive interference paradigm by Nailah Bessie Horne( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent literature suggests that typical forms of encoding (i.e., elaboration) are obsolete as compared to rating words based on survival relevance (Nairne, Thompson, & Pandeirada, 2007). Information encoded using survival ratings have produced superior recall despite manipulations to quell its effect. The current study examined whether survival processing is protected against forgetting. Our results suggest that targets studied under survival processing are not immune from retrieval blocking and RI effects. No effects of survival processing were obtained
