Impact of Self-Orientations and Work-Context-Related Variables on the Well-Being of Public- and Private-Sector Turkish Employees

İmamoğlu, Emine Olcay
Beydogan, Basak
The authors (a) explored the impact of individual differences in self-orientations (i.e., relatedness and individuation) of 383 Turkish public- and private-sector employees on their basic need satisfaction at work and their well-being (i.e., life satisfaction and psychological well-being); (b) considered differences in perceived autonomy- and relatedness-supportiveness of the work contexts; and (c) tested a model in which the relationship between self-orientations and well-being is partially mediated by the perceived supportiveness of the work context and the need satisfaction of employees at work, using structural equation modeling. Results suggest that self-orientations of employees predict their well-being both directly and indirectly through the mediation of perceived supportiveness and need satisfaction provided by the work context, which seem to vary according to sector type.


Compatibility of the dimensional reduction and variation procedures for a quadratic curvature model with a Kaluza–Klein Ansatz
Başkal, Sibel; Çelik, Sinan (2022-10-01)
The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.The introduction of extra dimensions is an invaluable strategy for the unification of gravity with other physical fields. Nevertheless, the matter in hand is to be eventually reduced to the actual 4D spacetime. The Kaluza–Klein theory is no exception to this well-known scheme. There are two procedures to obtain the field equations from a higher dimensional action. One can either take the variation of the ...
Relationship between familiarity, attitudes and preferences: Assisted living facilities as compared to nursing homes
İmamoğlu, Çağrı (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-11-01)
In this paper, the authors aim to (a) explore attitudes toward and preferences for living in the newly emerging place type of assisted living facilities in comparison to nursing homes, and (b) assess the possible impact of familiarity on those attitudes and preferences. Ninety-eight respondents (with a mean age of 62) were surveyed. Respondents were found to be more favorable toward assisted living facilities than nursing homes. A three-factor model was proposed in which attitudes mediated between familiari...
Effects of Drama-Based Geometry Instruction on Student Achievement, Attitudes, and Thinking Levels
DUATEPE PAKSU, ASUMAN; Ubuz, Behiye (Informa UK Limited, 2009-03-01)
The authors investigated the effects of drama. based instruction on students' geometry achievement, geometric thinking level, attitudes toward mathematics and geometry, and retention of achievement, in comparison with traditional teaching. The sample involved 102 7th-grade students from a public school. Multivariate analyses of covariance revealed that drama-based instruction had a significant effect on students' achievement, retention of achievement, thinking level, and attitudes, regardless of gender, mat...
Representing preferences by choquet integral: Guidelines to specify the capacity type
Dolgun, Leman Esra; Burnak, Nimetullah; Köksal, Gülser (Growing Science, 2020-06-01)
© 2020 by the authors; licensee Growing Science, Canada.This study considers representing decision maker preferences by Choquet integral in existence of interactions among criteria. Parameters of the Choquet integral are capacities which assign weights not only to criteria but also to each subset of criteria. This property provides Choquet integral with the ability of modeling some types of interactions. Different capacity types with different degrees of complexity have been defined in the literature. After...
High-Pressure-Homogenized Clove and Thyme Oil Emulsions: Formulation, Stability, and Antioxidant Capacity
Tonyalı Karslı, Gökcem; Şahin, Serpil; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2022-12-16)
© 2022 The Authors. Published by American Chemical Society.This study focuses on the formulation of clove oil and thyme oil emulsions showing antioxidant capacity. Emulsions were formulated with 2 and 4% of each essential oil by using microfluidization. Tween 80 was used as the surfactant. Droplet sizes and polydispersity index values of emulsions were measured, and their effects on the emulsion stability were investigated. While thyme oil emulsions showed a good stability for 3 months, destability started ...
