Abstract Video games are among the most popular leisure activities in current Western societies. Psychology research has shown correlations, at the latent level, between intelligence and video games ranging from 0.60 to 0.93. Here we analyze whether video games genre can account for this range of correlations by testing one hundred and thirty-four participants playing ten video games of different genres for iPad® and WiiU® (Art of Balance®, Blek, Crazy Pool, EDGE®, Hook, Rail Maze, SkyJump, Spac...

espanolRESUMEN La situacion de crisis que ha vivido el mundo occidental desde 2007 ha generado miles de desempleados. Uno de los paises mas afectados por el desempleo es Espana, en especial los jovenes (34.7%). A la vista de este contexto intentamos analizar el rol de los recursos psicologicos, el bienestar, el distres y el eustres en jovenes graduados empleados y desempleados. Hemos utilizado una muestra de 542 jovenes graduados, de los cuales el 48.3% estaban desempleados y los que trabajaban ...

Abstract In experimental psychology, a unique model of general processing is often sought to represent the behaviors of all individuals. We address the question of whether seeking this objective - a unique model - is the most fruitful scientific strategy by studying a specific case example. In order to approach an answer to such a question, we compared the conventional approach in experimental psychology with analyses at the individual level by applying a specific mathematical modeling approach....

Englishn the last decades research focused on well - being has been prominent, especially with the emergence of Positive Psychology. In this context, it is necessary to invest in the construction and validation of appropriate instruments to assess the dimensions of a healthy psychological functioning. This study aims to adapt and validate the Positive Psychological Functioning Scale (EFPP; Merino & Privado, 2015) with a sample of Portuguese university students. A total of 1131 students from two ...

Abstract Several methods of calculating the variance of the more popular parametric indexes of signal detection theory (SDT) have been proposed. Miller’s exact method and Gourevitch and Galanter’s approximate method have proved appropriate for most practical situations using yes–no detection paradigms. Those methods, specifically developed for single-point estimates, are also useful for a sample of estimates that share their parametric values of sensitivity and bias, δ and C , respectively. Howe...

Este estudo explora diferentes recursos pessoais associados ao bem-estar e funcionamento psicologico positivo de estudantes universitarios portugueses, tomando na sua analise as variaveis area de curso e genero. Foi aplicada a Escala de Funcionamento Psicologico Positivo (EFPP) a 1070 estudantes de diferentes cursos. Observa-se um efeito da interacao do genero e area cientifica em 5 dimensoes da EFPP. O genero diferencia Autonomia, Autoestima e Otimismo (pontuacoes mais favoraveis nos homens), e...

Abstract Personality neuroscience defines the scientific study of the neurobiological basis of personality. This field assumes that individual differences in personality traits are related with structural and functional variations of the human brain. Gray and white matters are structural properties considered separately in previous research. Available findings in this regard are largely disparate. Here we analyze the relationships between gray matter (cortical thickness (CT), cortical surface ar...

The purpose of this research is to understand if the relationship between positive and negative affect (PA/NA) and perceived health is mediated by psychosocial resources, and, whether culture (collectivistic vs. individualistic) has a role in that relationship. Structural Equation Models were applied: The first expressed the direct and indirect relationship PA/NA to health. The second reflected indirect influence of PA/NA on health and, resources mediated between both. Both models were tested in...

A simulation study is presented to evaluate and compare three methods to estimate the variance of the estimates of the parameters δ and C of the signal detection theory (SDT). Several methods have been proposed to calculate the variance of their estimators, d' and c. Those methods have been mostly assessed by comparing the empirical means and variances in simulation studies with the calculations done with the parametric values of the probabilities of giving a yes response on a signal trial (hits...
