Hypoxic-ischaemic injury, long considered the most frequent causative factor, accounts for fewer than 10% of cases, whereas a growing body of evidence(More)
Researchers have extensively investigated the factor structure of the Boredom Proneness Scale (BPS; R. Farmer & N. D. Sundberg, 1986) using exploratory factor analyses (EFAs), with inconsistent methodology and results. Thus, the purpose of the present study was to perform confirmatory factor analyses on the BPS to better determine the nature and extent of(More)
Logotherapy, developed by Viktor Frankl, posits that when one lacks meaning in life, boredom can result. Thus, the two constructs should be inversely related. To examine this relationship, 279 students (M = 19.8 yr., SD = 2.6; 179 women, 98 men) from a university in the southern United States were administered the Purpose of Life test and the Boredom(More)
The two-factor structure (Technical Competence, General Competence) of the Computer Understanding and Experience Scale was examined through confirmatory factor analysis with a sample of 293 undergraduates from a medium-sized university located in the southern USA. Analysis indicated that the two-factor subscale structure of the Computer Understanding and(More)
