Perception of Russia in the Baltic Countries: Memory, Identity, and Conflict

As a basic unit of sociolinguistic inquiry, the family context has been traditionally placed at a central position in its key role when it comes to transmitting a particular language from generation to generation (Fishman 1991). I conducted individual semi-structured in-depth interviews with 30 couples from Russian-Estonian mixed families. The couples were chosen to reflect […]

Shared Threats Generate Collectivistic Tendencies and Ingroup Favoritism in a Public Goods Dilemma.

The rise of cooperation within groups has been attributed to diverse mechanisms of internal regulation (e.g., punishment, reputation, monitoring). Here, we demonstrate that cooperation, as well as collectivistic values, may emerge independently of such internal regulation among minimal groups situated within threatening environments. Modifying a public goods dilemma, we devised a behavioral simulation of collective […]

Cultural Intelligence and Creativity in Multicultural Teams

Cultural diversity influences team creativity outcomes through both cognitive and affective mechanisms. Multiple perspectives facilitate alternative ways of solving problems and enhance creativity, but differences may also generate conflict, harm team cohesiveness, and hinder creativity. We propose that cultural intelligence (CQ) strengthens cognitive and weakens affective mechanisms. People with higher levels of CQ are likely […]

Perceived Warmth Moderates the Relationship Between Intergroup Apology and Forgiveness: An Experiment Using a Fictitious Group

Hong Kong participants read a fictional scenario in which Hong Kong interests had been harmed by a fictitious outgroup that was either described as high or low in warmth. Participants were subsequently informed that the offending group had either apologized for the incident or not.

Two online surveys were conducted among Japanese employees (n = 400).

Emergence of Preferences for Centralized Leaders in Response to Collective Threats

Population-level studies suggest positive associations between regional ecological threats and norms that promote group coordination and stability (e.g., hierarchies, support for authorities). The present research experimentally tested the effects of perceived external threat on groups’ organization around centralized leaders. Using a modified public goods game simulating cooperative dilemmas to avert ecological threat, participants encountered high […]

The Effect of Social Sensitivity on Collective Intelligence: The Moderation Effect of Task’s Verbal Superiority in Japanese Culture

This study aims to identify the processes that social sensitivity affects collective intelligence of a group. Woolley et al. (2010) demonstrated that the social sensitivity, which is measured by Reading Mind in the Eyes test (RME), is the best predictor of collective intelligence. To identify the features of collective intelligence, how the sensitivity bears collective […]
