In susceptible individuals, overwhelming traumatic stress often results in severe psychopathologies such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or dissociative disorders. Among other symptoms, these disorders are defined by severe abnormalities of memory processing, manifested either as the uncontrollable emergence of memories (flashbacks) or as an inability to remember events (dissociative amnesia) that are usually, but not necessarily, related to the stressful experience. These memory defici...

We carried out tests of the first 2 premises of the Continuum Model (CM) of impression formation (Fiske & Neuberg, 1990). These premises predict that category information will in general be more influential than noncategory information, and that the fit of noncategorical attributes with the category is a major determinant of the relative influence of these types of information. Using stimuli that included sets of (a) text items only, and (b) combinations of photos and text items, we found no sup...

Several years ago the possibility was raised that leaders high in Emotional Intelligence (EI) might be oversensitive to emotions felt by themselves and by others in a way that could compromise their social effectiveness (Antonakis, Ashkanasy, & Dasborough, 2009). In this article, we provide an empirical test of this “curse of emotion” hypothesis and of the hypersensitivity hypothesis, which appears to be its wellspring. We show that high EI individuals were more strongly affected by incidental a...

True natural language understanding requires the ability to identify and understand metaphorical utterances, which are ubiquitous in human communication of all kinds. At present, however, even the problem of identifying metaphors in arbitrary text is very much an unsolved problem, let alone analyzing their meaning. Furthermore, no current methods can be transferred to new languages without the development of extensive language-specific knowledge bases and similar semantic resources. In this pape...

Face-to-face negotiations always benefit if the interacting individuals trust each other. But trust is also important in online interactions, even for humans interacting with a computational agent. In this article, the authors describe a behavioral experiment to determine whether, by volunteering information that it need not disclose, a software agent in a multi-issue negotiation can alleviate mistrust in human counterparts who differ in their propensities to mistrust others. Results indicated t...
