Two studies report the development and validation of the Humor At Work HAW questionnaire, developed specifically for the measurement of humor within workplace settings. Using an empirical approach to item selection, items were administered over the internet to an international largely Australian sample of individuals in a range of occupations.
This study investigates infant health care belief practices in rural Punjab and looks at the social significance of infant care beliefs practiced during sawa mahina. During six months of fieldwork, using participant observation and unstructured interviews as primary research methods, the study explored the prevalent postpartum tradition from a childcare perspective. A Punjabi child holds a social value regarding familial, religious, and emotional values. The five-week traditional postpartum period provides an insight into mother-child attachment, related child care belief practices, and the social construction of infancy. Establishing an early foundation of ascribed identities is another important part of postpartum belief practices.
It will argue that these models can, apparently, be reconciled if the given liminal phase is examined in terms of level and that this is most apparent when examining an initiation ritual rather than a pilgrimage. The article will draw upon detailed fieldwork with an evangelical student group operating in the highly liminal environment of Oxford University. It will demonstrate, notably in relation to the issue of social class, that each level of structure leads to communitas in which a further level of structure develops. Hence, it will be argued that there is concomitantly structure and anti-structure on each level of the multilayered university and university-evangelical-group experience. The article will appreciate that further research will of course be required to develop this idea theoretically and practically and will recommend future research in this regard.
A novel two-dimensional matrix taxonomy, or atlas, of personality, emotion and behaviour is presented. The two dimensions of the atlas, affiliation and dominance, are demonstrated to have theoretical foundations in neurobiology and social psychology. Both dimensions are divided into five ordinal categories, creating a square matrix of 25 cells. A new catalogue of 20, English words descriptive of personality, emotion, behaviour, and power is also presented. The catalogue is more comprehensive than previous catalogues, and is novel in its inclusion of intrapersonal, group, and societal behaviours.
Everyone is interested in the pursuit of happiness, but the real problem for the researchers is how to measure it. Our aim was to deeply investigate happiness measurement through biomedical signals, using psychophysiological methods to objectify the happiness experiences measurements. The classic valence-arousal model of affective states to study happiness has been extensively used in psychophysiology.
The Oxford family of psychometric instruments designed to assess individual differences in happiness has its roots in the broader field of social psychology shaped by Michael Argyle and his associates. This entry proposes to give detailed attention to the conceptualization and operationalization of happiness expressed through the OHI, to explore the connection between the OHI and a broader theory of personality, and to illustrate the contexts in which the OHI has been employed.
Studies suggest a positive association of spirituality and health behaviors with well-being especially subjective well-being , but still the precise character of such relationships between all these constructs remains unknown.Steven P. 22.12.2020 at 06:17
