Recent research has found that generalized pliance is related to psychological inflexibility. As generalized pliance and psychological inflexibility are learned through social interaction, there may be differences in these processes across cultures. The present study examined adolescents’ generalized pliance and psychological inflexibility with respect to cultur...

An alternative hypothesis proposes that it is the contrast between the types of food reinforcement experienced by the subject throughout the task that ...
