Individualism and sociocultural adaptation: Discrimination and social capital as moderators among rural-to-urban migrants in China.

Asian J Soc Psychol 2015 Jun;18(2):176-181

Institute of Developmental Psychology, Beijing Normal University, China.

This study examined the associations of sociocultural adaptation with individualism and collectivism and the moderating roles of discrimination and social capital in the associations among rural-to-urban migrants ( = 641) in Beijing, China. Results indicated that individualism was associated with poorer adaptation for migrants reporting low perceived discrimination or low social capital. However, migrants reporting high perceived discrimination showed poorer adaptation, regardless of individualism; and migrants reporting high social capital showed better adaptation, regardless of individualism.

The contribution of self-deceptive enhancement to display rules in the United States and Japan.

Authors:
Joanne M Chung

Asian J Soc Psychol 2012 Mar;15(1):69-75

Department of Psychology, University of California, Davis, California, USA.

Socially desirable responding was tested as a mediator of American and Japanese college student differences in display rules. Americans endorsed the expression of anger, contempt, disgust, fear, happiness, and surprise more than the Japanese. Americans also exhibited more self-deceptive enhancement than the Japanese, and self-deceptive enhancement partially mediated country differences on the endorsement of anger, disgust, happiness, and surprise, but not contempt and fear.

Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton New Jersey, USA.

Biases in the perceived prevalence and motives of severe acute respiratory syndrome prevention behaviors among Chinese high school students in Hong Kong.

Asian J Soc Psychol 2004 Apr 11;7(1):67-81. Epub 2004 Mar 11.

University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

In two studies conducted in Hong Kong during and immediately after the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), participants displayed several social cognitive biases when they estimated the prevalence of and inferred the motives underlying SARS preventive behaviors. First, participants who practiced preventive behaviors (practicers) consistently estimated that more people practiced such behaviors than did non-practicers (false consensus bias). Second, for some preventive behaviors, participants believed that their own behaviors were more motivated by prosocial concerns (relative to self-interest) than were other practicers (pluralistic ignorance).

Coping with the threat of severe acute respiratory syndrome: Role of threat appraisals and coping responses in health behaviors.

Asian J Soc Psychol 2004 Apr 11;7(1):9-23. Epub 2004 Mar 11.

York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The present study examines the psychological impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) by exploring the coping strategies and health behaviors enacted in response to the SARS epidemic. Hierarchical linear regression indicated that the use of wishful thinking in response to the threat of SARS was related to both avoiding public places and avoiding people perceived to be possible  carriers  of  the  SARS  virus,  but  was  not  associated  with  the  use  of more adaptive health behaviors, such as using disinfectants and hand washing. Conversely, those who reported engaging in empathic responding in response to the threat of SARS were both less likely to report avoiding people perceived as being at a high risk for SARS and more likely to report engaging in effective health behaviors.

The psychology behind the masks: Psychological responses to the severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak in different regions.

Asian J Soc Psychol 2004 Apr 11;7(1):3-7. Epub 2004 Mar 11.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) was first reported in China, and spread to 29 regions, affecting over 8000 people worldwide. For the general public, the psychological impact of SARS may have been greater than the physical health danger of the disease. The present paper proposes the influence of psychological factors on people's cognitive, affective, and behavioral responses during the SARS outbreak. Read More
