While vision is considered as the starting point for any transformation process toward sustainability, little is known about how such a vision looks. To fill in a fundamental gap in the corporate sustainability literature, the present study advances a theory of organizational vision into a coherent theory of sustainability vision. It adopts the theory-building approaches of covering-law, enlightenment, and process by comparing and contrasting a diverse set of relevant plausible, logical, empiric...

The linear discrepancy model is an information processing model of group decision-making. The theory predicts group decision outcomes based on the arguments offered during group decision-making (Boster, Mayer, Hunter, & Hale, 1980). To test this model, participants reported their positions and the arguments they would present at five time points in response to a transcribed hypothetical jury transcript. Data were consistent with the propositions of the linear discrepancy model.
Presidential candidates use different language intensity in different situations. However, the literature is unclear as to when they should use low- or high-intensity language. We applied language expectancy theory and Edwards’ theory of presidential influence to situations varying in circumstances during a presidential campaign. Results indicated significant interactions between language intensity and economic conditions. In support of theories of persuasion applied to presidential campaign con...

Political leaders and other public figures use intense language (specific or emotional lexical items in a text) to wield power in society. Information processing theory is used to explain the effect of language intensity on topic, message and source evaluation. These effects are demonstrated by examining the impact of language intensity in George Bush’s Declaration of Hostilities message. Participants in the study (N = 285) read a low-, moderate- or high-intensity version of the Bush message. Ca...

Domestic violence is unacceptable in Islam; the relations between husband and wife, as stipulated in the Qur’an, are that of helpers, supporters, and friends of each other. The marital relationship is to be characterized by mutual love, compassion, justice, and mercy. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) instructed men to treat women kindly and admonished those who were abusive to their wives. However, a verse in the Qur’an (4:34) that holds men accountable for caring and protecting women, and spells out sev...

The ability to infer value from the reactions of other people is a common and essential ability with a poorly understood neurobiology. Commonly, social learning matches one's values and behavior to what is perceived as normal for one's social group. This is known as conformity. Conformity of value correlates with neural activity shared by cognitions that depend on optimum catecholamine levels, but catecholamine involvement in conformity has not been tested empirically. Methylphenidate (MPH) is a...
