Abstract In an attempt to address inconsistency in the literature regarding narcissism and online antisocial behaviour, we applied the theory of threatened egotism and aggression to examine whether anger moderates the relationship between narcissism and antisocial behaviour on Tinder. Specifically, we explored anger moderating the relationship between narcissistic subtypes of Grandiose Exhibitionism and Entitlement Exploitative and perpetration of antisocial behaviour (aggression and harassment)...

Abstract Moral licensing occurs when someone who initially behaved morally or cooperatively, later behaves less morally, as if they had a “license” to act badly. On the flipside, moral cleansing occurs when someone first behaves immorally, which prompts them to later behaves more morally. To-date, few studies have investigated individual differences in the moral licensing and cleansing effects. This paper bridges this gap by investigating how cooperative preferences, as measured by social value ...

Abstract It has been suggested that impulsivity is a core feature of psychopathy. However, certain findings in the research literature do not seem to mesh with this notion and suggest that primary and secondary variants of psychopathy may differ in their manifestation of impulsivity-related features. We carried out a correlational analysis and group comparisons on a sample of 106 non-criminal females. Variables that were measured include the Fearless Dominance (PPI-FD) and Impulsive Antisocialit...

Abstract The relationship between personality, executive function (EF) and athletic expertise has implications for researchers and sports psychologists, alike. The current study examined the relationship between the five-factor model of personality, the lower-order model of EF, and athletic expertise. A sample of 367 participants (57% male; Mage = 21.9) with a range of athletic expertise (super-elite = 64; elite = 65; amateur = 75, novice = 74, and non-athlete = 89) completed a personality inven...

Abstract People who can effectively regulate their feelings benefit from more desirable affective lives. Here we examine whether individual differences in chronic feelings of power are associated with regulatory efforts aimed at maintaining positive affect and ceasing negative affect. In Study 1, we found that people with a stronger (vs. weaker) sense of power were more inclined to cognitively re-frame (reappraise) and up-regulate (repair) their affective experiences, whilst also being less incl...

Abstract Mentalizing ability, i.e., an ability to attribute mental states to other beings, has been regarded as a chief cognitive predisposition that allows people to believe in supernatural beings. However, research on mentalizing ability and religiosity is inconsistent and tainted with methodological vagueness. Most notably, the terms “mentalizing” and “empathy” have often been used interchangeably, which can mask important distinctions between cognitive and emotional foundations of religious ...
Abstract Terrorist attacks can instigate widespread and long-lasting fear. Mass media can enforce fear by framing the events and affecting their perceptions. We implemented a news experiment to investigate the fear-triggering effects of different types of terrorist threats. We manipulated the type of terrorist group in three scenarios: a homegrown Islamist group, a foreign Islamist group, and a domestic far-right group. The fourth group served as the control group. The data were collected in ear...

Abstract Mediators of IQ score differences of Whites with Hispanics and African Americans are reviewed in the WISC-IV, WISC-V, and WAIS-IV. Mediators included parent education, income and academic expectations for children and adolescents, and self-education, income and occupation for adults. Results showed that these variables account for substantial portions of variance in all group comparisons, but least for African Americans and adults. The critical influence of cognitively enriching and imp...

Abstract The goal of the present study was to test if an individual's Honesty–Humility impacts the types of organizations that they are attracted to work for. Using a multi-level within-person design, 179 undergraduate students rated the organizational image of 16 organizations chosen to vary on four core organizational traits central to values: Powerful, Achievement-Oriented, Benevolent, and Universal. The findings indicated that individuals low in Honesty–Humility were significantly more attra...
