Latest from our journals
Social Psychology makes the front page of The Times
You might think that you need social psychology training to accurately understand social psychological phenomena. However, a paper by Anton Gollwitzer and John A. Bargh from Yale University published in our journal Social Psychology reported their studies on lay individuals’ skills at predicting social psychological phenomena (e.g., social loafing, attribution effects). The journal article’s title was quite dry, “Social Psychological Skill and Its Correlates”, but got headlines in the press:
The headline on the front page of The Times (March 23, 2018) in the UK was “Take it from people who know: older is not wiser". And a press release from Yale more or less accurately summarizing the findings as “Sad, lonely people more likely to be ‘natural’ social psychologists” helped lead to a posting on Reddit that was upvoted more than 56,000 times and attracted over 3,200 comments.
Unsurprisingly, it was also the most frequently read article on our journals platform, eContent.
Why do we enjoy reality shows?
In the Research Report Why do we enjoy reality shows – Is it really all about humiliation and gloating?, published in the Journal of Media Psychology, investigators looked at 163 people who reported on their own willingness to participate in such a show and how they would react if their families were involved. The study found that people who delight in watching reality shows don’t actually like to see others suffer and be humiliated. Indeed, people who enjoy watching reality shows seem to have a positive assessment of participating in the show.
Why do people give to online crowdfunding projects?
The study Go pro bono – Prosocial language as a success factor in crowdfunding, which has been published in the journal Social Psychology, suggests it’s all dependent upon the word you use to ask for their money. People want to invest in projects where a positive contribution to society is the result. By using prosocial words in their requests, groups were significantly more successful in their fundraising efforts.
