The present research examined the psychological motives underlying widespread support for intelligent design theory (IDT), a purportedly scientific theory that lacks any scientific evidence; and antagonism toward evolutionary theory (ET), a theory supported by a large body of scientific evidence. We tested whether these attitudes are influenced by IDT's(More)
A growing body of research suggests that pride and shame are associated with distinct, cross-culturally recognised nonverbal expressions, which are spontaneously displayed in situations of success and failure, respectively. Here, we review these findings, then offer a theoretical account of the adaptive benefits of these displays. We argue that both pride(More)
Since its introduction into the psychological literature, narcissism has been conceptualized as an emotional disorder—a result of excessive pride and shame. Following Freud (1914/1957), Kernberg (1975) argued that the central psychological process underlying the disorder— identifi cation with an idealized ego—necessarily leads to pride. Kohut (1971) placed(More)
One of the bottlenecks in the development of text-to-speech synthesizers based on segment concatenation is the need for large, segmented and labeled corpora. Consequently, as manual segmentation and labeling is a tedious and time consuming task, there is a strong demand for automatic labeling systems which can label speech from many languages. Several(More)
The program described in this paper was originally designed to generate the (synthetic) stimuli required for a large class of psychoacoustic tests. In our opinion, however, it may also be of interest in other fields of biomedical information processing. The applied computational techniques are standard in the field of digital signal processing, but the(More)
Humans learn, in large part, by copying knowledgeable others. However, because others can be deceitful or lack competence, indiscriminate copying would be maladaptive. How then do individuals determine which social group members have knowledge that should be copied? We argue that the pride nonverbal expression may signal expertise, and thus bias learning(More)
