Ten years on: A review of recent research on the Job Demand–Control (-Support) model and psychological well-being
Abstract In 1999, van der Doef and Maes published a systematic review focusing on the Job-Demand–Control (JDC) model (Karasek, 1979) and the Job Demand–Control (-Support) (JDCS) model (Johnson &
Group Decision Making Under Conditions of Distributed Knowledge: The Information Asymmetries Model.
It is proposed that groups can outperform individual decision makers and voting schemes if certain asymmetries in information distribution are present and certain asymmets in information processing are absent.
Group decision making in hidden profile situations: dissent as a facilitator for decision quality.
The effect of diversity in individual prediscussion preferences on group decision quality was examined in an experiment in which 135 three-person groups worked on a personnel selection case with 4
The dissemination of critical, unshared information in decision-making groups: the effects of pre-discussion dissent
Previous research in group decision making has found that in situations of a hidden profile (i.e. the best choice alternative is hidden from individual members as they consider their pre-discussion
What's in a smile? Neural correlates of facial embodiment during social interaction
This analysis demonstrates that differential neural activity can be detected relative to the FIR time window in which facial mimicry occurs and is proposed to subserve the integration of emotional and action-related processes as part of a pre-reflective, embodied reaction to the perception of socially relevant facial expressions.
The effects of self-involvement on attention, arousal, and facial expression during social interaction with virtual others: A psychophysiological study
The results show that attention allocation, as assessed by eye-tracking measurements, was specifically related to self-involvement regardless of the social meaning being conveyed, and arousal, as measured by pupil size, was primarily related to perceiving the virtual character's gender.
Knowing others' preferences degrades the quality of group decisions.
Results from 4 experiments demonstrate that learning the other group members' preferences at the beginning of a discussion impedes the solution of hidden profiles and that the effect of learning the others' preferences is due to participants bolstering their position or due to an increase in informational load.
Making support work: The interplay between social support and social identity
Abstract Previous research has found mixed results regarding the stress buffering effects of social support. In an attempt to explain these findings, we build on the social identity approach.
Endocrinological and psychological responses to job stressors: An experimental test of the Job Demand–Control Model
This study provides the first clear-cut experimental evidence for the idea that the negative impact of high job demands on endocrinological responses can be buffered by high levels of job control.
Social Influence and Perceptual Decision Making
This study is the first to disentangle whether social influence on decision making is due to altering the uptake of available sensory information or due to shifting the decision criteria, and finds consistent evidence for the idea that social influence alters the uptakeof available sensory evidence.
