The sample of the study consisted of 510 Greek tertiary education students who completed the Self-Perception Profile for College Students, the Work Values Scale and the Nowicki–Strickland Locus of Control Scale. The results showed that intrinsic ori...
Emerging adults have the highest rates of depression compared to other age groups, yet effective, developmentally appropriate interventions are scarce. A growing body of research suggests an important link exists between self-concepts and depression. To contribute to the dialogue regarding emerging adult depression, theory, and potential points of intervention, a systematic research synthesis (SRS) on the state of knowledge of the relationship between self-concepts (self-esteem, self-efficacy, l...

We focus primarily on subjective task value (STV), first discussing the definition of its different components (intrinsic value, attainment value, uti...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate longitudinal associations between seeking social support and cyberbullying victimization and between seeking social support and internalizing problems. A two-wave panel study was conducted among 2,128 adolescents aged 10–17. A cross-lagged panel analysis among those adolescents who indicated being a victim at Time 1 (N = 234) demonstrates that seeking support is associated with lower cyberbullying victimization six months later. However, this ...

Abstract The expectancy-value theory (EVT) is widely used to explain and predict students' learning performance, persistence and aspirations. However, very few studies have examined how expectancy and subjective task values, the two constructs derived from the theory, are related to second language (L2) learning, and how the theory can be applied to daily teaching for the improvement of students’ learning. Considering the rapid increase in the number of L2 students around the world, this article...

Social media use among adolescents continues to increase each year. This cross-sectional study explored how the amount of time spent using social media and the frequency of specific behaviors on social media, namely, behaviors that involve self-objectification, were related to body surveillance and body shame among a sample of early adolescents (N = 142; 43 boys and 99 girls, X¯age = 12.44 years, SDage = 0.61). Utilizing self-report measures, three types of social media were examined: Twitter, F...

Abstract This study investigated several dispositional predictors of a form of subjective well-being (life satisfaction) while controlling for social desirability. Results from 185 survey respondents collected at two time points three months apart demonstrated that of narcissistic entitlement, narcissistic superiority, and self-esteem, only the last two are significant predictors of life satisfaction. Impression management as a form of socially desirable responding and narcissistic entitlement w...
