The study aimed at testing the reliability and validity of the Chinese version of Abbreviated PAD Emotion Scales using a Chinese sample. 297 Chinese undergraduate students were tested with the Chinese version of Abbreviated PAD Emotion Scales; 98 of them were retested with the same scales after seven days in order to assess the test-retest reliability; and(More)
The notion that women are better at multitasking has already become part of our folk knowledge that has been widely accepted. However, scientific community surprisingly falls silent on this issue. The present research attempted to evaluate this idea critically using strictly controlled lab experiment. We found that men’s performance in a commonly adopted(More)
The authors find that experimental studies using online samples (e.g., MTurk) often violate the assumption of random assignment, because participant attrition-quitting a study before completing it and getting paid-is not only prevalent, but also varies systemically across experimental conditions. Using standard social psychology paradigms (e.g.,(More)
We design a kind of object manipulation system, which is based on Robot Operating System (ROS) distributed processing framework. This system can communicate with human beings; can percept the 3D environment by RGB-D sensor; has the ability of reasoning; can transfer the natural language intention to machine instruction to control the movement of(More)
Recently, a new fundamental discovery has been made of the relationship between attentional system and affective system of human brain, giving rise to the devaluation-by-inhibition hypothesis. It is shown that selective attention has an affective impact on an otherwise emotionally bland stimulus. Particularly, if a neutral stimulus was inhibited by(More)
This research explored how social distance affects risk preference in the life-saving domain. We found that decisionmakers tend to be more risk-seeking when the lives of close others versus distant others are at stake. By analyzing the shape of value function, we showed that the underlying mechanism for this difference in risk attitude might be that(More)
The present research sought to address an intriguing yet heretofore unanswered question with the tools of experimental psychology: Do people today still subscribe to the outdated folk belief that the heart is a mental organ, governing certain, if not all, aspects of mental life—a belief we termed cardiopsychism? The results from multiple experiments(More)
People use at least two strategies to solve the challenge of understanding another person's mind: inferring that person's perspective by reading his or her behavior (theorization) and getting that person's perspective by experiencing his or her situation (simulation). The five experiments reported here demonstrate a strong tendency for people to(More)
