The present study investigates the possible variables that explain subjective well-being based on Relative Deprivation Theory. In this regard, the first purpose of the study is to focus on the qualitative characteristic of the desired outcome and examine whether the types of material and emotional egoistic relative deprivation exhibit a differentiated relationship with subjective well-being. The second purpose is to test the possible mediating role of perceived intrinsic strength and perceived extrinsic strength variables on the relationship between material/emotional egoistic relative deprivation and subjective well-being. Data were collected from 286 female and 161 male undergraduate university students who had an age range from 18 to 26 (Mage = 21.02; S = 1.71). Although there are significant differences in some variables based on the qualitative characteristic of the desired outcome, the number of variables that are not differentiated is higher due to the relativity aspect of deprivation. In addition, material/emotional egoistic relative deprivation is associated with subjective well-being through perceived intrinsic strength and perceived extrinsic strength. The findings complement the related literature. The research contributes to the literature that considers the qualitative characteristic of the desired outcome, and the possible indirect relationship between material/emotional egoistic relative deprivation and subjective well-being.

Using learning style theory in remote laboratory applications
Tokdemir, Guel; Cagiltay, Nergiz Ercil (2007-09-07)
Studies have shown that, while learning different concepts, people sometimes use different approaches. These different approaches define individual learning styles. Understanding learning style differences is thus an important step in improving performance of the individuals and educational institutions. In this study, a learning style assessment tool was used to examine the relationship between students' learning styles and their performance in engineering education programs of Atilim University. 329 stude...
Rational choice theory: its merits and limits in explaining and predicting cultural behavior
Kılınç Adanalı, Yurdagül; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2016)
The main goal of this dissertation is to examine whether instrumental rationality can predict and explain successfully human behavior in all walks of life. I have chosen Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice Theory as the focus of my investigation, since they are considered as the best models of instrumental rationality in philosophy and social sciences, and in particular in economics and politics. To see their merits and to determine their limits, I have applied Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice ...
Bergson's conception of time: its effects on a possible philosophy of life
Kurtoğlu Taşdalen, Demet; Grünberg, David; Department of Philosophy (2003)
The aim of this study is to show how a possible philosophy of life can arise from Bergson̕s conception of time. In realizing this aim, I appeal to Hadot̕s description of the paradox of the human condition. I claim that in order to understand how a Bergsonian philosophy of life through Bergson̕s conception of time would arise we need to understand the paradox of the human condition. The reason for this is that there are a lot of dualities in Bergson̕s philosophy all of which, I claim, are based on this funda...
Fuzzy classification models based on tanaka’s fuzzy linear regression approach and nonparametric improved fuzzy classifier functions
Özer, Gizem; Köksal, Gülser; Department of Industrial Engineering (2009)
In some classification problems where human judgments, qualitative and imprecise data exist, uncertainty comes from fuzziness rather than randomness. Limited number of fuzzy classification approaches is available for use for these classification problems to capture the effect of fuzzy uncertainty imbedded in data. The scope of this study mainly comprises two parts: new fuzzy classification approaches based on Tanaka’s Fuzzy Linear Regression (FLR) approach, and an improvement of an existing one, Improved Fu...
Perceived Partner Responsiveness Predicts Better Sleep Quality Through Lower Anxiety
Selçuk, Emre; Stanton, Sarah C. E.; Slatcher, Richard B.; Ong, Anthony D. (2017-01-01)
The present study investigated whether perceived partner responsiveness-the extent to which individuals feel cared for, understood, and validated by their partner-predicted subjective sleep problems and objective (actigraph-based) sleep efficiency through lower anxiety and depression symptoms. A life span sample of 698 married or cohabiting adults (35-86 years old) completed measures of perceived partner responsiveness and subjective sleep problems. A subset of the sample (N = 219) completed a weeklong slee...
