Some tests of the distinction between the private self and the collective self.
On the bases of Greenwald and Pratkanis's (1984) distinction between private and collective aspects of the self and on Triandis's (1989) theory about individualistic and collectivistic cultures, 2
Mental habits: metacognitive reflection on negative self-thinking.
TLDR
The authors found that negative self-thinking habit was distinct from rumination and mindfulness, predicted explicit as well as implicit low self-esteem, attenuated a positivity bias in the processing of self-relevant stimuli, and predicted anxiety and depressive symptoms 9 months later.
Some Tests of the Distinction between Cognitive and Affective Beliefs
Abstract Five experiments tested the distinction between affective and cognitive beliefs. Experiments 1 and 2 employed a traditional factor analytic paradigm to show that affective and cognitive
Inferences about the morality of an aggressor: the role of perceived motive.
TLDR
Investigation of perceivers' inferences about the morality of target persons who engaged in aggressive behavior suggests that perceived motives play an important role in dispositional inference and pose a problem for models that focus primarily on perceived causality, assumptions about base rates, or diagnosticity.
Replication, falsification, and the crisis of confidence in social psychology
TLDR
This paper considers the replication debate from a historical and philosophical perspective, and provides a conceptual analysis of both replication and falsification as they pertain to this important discussion.
Evidence that perceived behavioural control is a multidimensional construct: perceived control and perceived difficulty.
TLDR
The findings support the distinction between perceived control and perceived difficulty, and suggest that perceived difficulty is a better predictor of most behavioural intentions and behaviours than is perceived control.
The Importance of Subjective Norms for a Minority of People: between Subjects and within-Subjects Analyses
Intentions to perform most behaviors are more controlled by attitudes than by subjective norms. Yet subjective norms typically account for a significant, albeit small, proportion of unique variance
The Effects of Language and Priming on the Relative Accessibility of the Private Self and the Collective Self
An experiment addressed some limitations and implications of previous findings obtained by Trafimow, Triandis, and Goto suggesting that private and collective self-cognitions are stored in different
Affective and cognitive control of persons and behaviours.
TLDR
Three studies assessed the relative contribution of affect and cognition to determining behavioural intentions for a variety of behaviours using both between-participants and within-participant analyses, finding that there are strong individual differences among people.
Does the Temporal Stability of Behavioral Intentions Moderate Intention-Behavior and Past Behavior-Future Behavior Relations?
This study tested the hypothesis that the temporal stability of behavioral intentions moderates relationships between intentions and behavior and between previous experience and subsequent
