The present study was aimed at showing that by conjointly using two techniques that are rarely used in combination - regression analysis and functional measurement, it may be possible to rigorously tests models of combination of factors using data obtained in traditional multi-item/multi-scale surveys. The data used for this demonstration were taken from a large survey (N = 3,235) of Turkish students' attitude to women (ATW). As it included 12 types of predictors (e.g., age, geographic location, score on collectivism scales), stepwise regression analysis was firstly used to select a subset of predictors. Three of them explained the major part of variance: biological gender (sex), level of political conservatism in the area (the place factor), and personal score on the vertical individualism scale (the culture factor). Secondly, continuous conservatism and collectivism scores were categorized into three levels and three factorial plots were created - one for each level of support for conservatism - with ATW on the y-axis, vertical collectivism on the x-axis, and biological sex on curves. Divergence of curves observed in all panels supported a multiplicative-type model of combination of the gender and culture factors. As a result, the model of combination of factors suggested was: Negative Attitude to Women = (Gender x Culture) + Place.


Psychometric properties of the brief verision of the fear of negative evaluation scale in a Turkish sample
Koydemir, Selda; Demir, Ayhan Gürbüz (SAGE Publications, 2007-06-01)
The purpose of the study was to report initial data on the psychometric properties of the Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale. The scale was applied to a nonclinical sample of 250 (137 women, 113 men) Turkish undergraduate students selected randomly from Middle East Technical University. Their mean age was 20.4 yr. (SD 1.9). The factor structure of the Turkish version, its criterion validity, and internal reliability coefficients were assessed. Although maximum likelihood factor analysis initially indic...
Visual perspective in causal attribution, empathy and attitude change
Onder, OM; Öner Özkan, Bengi (SAGE Publications, 2003-12-01)
The aim of the present study was to test the effect of visual perspective on the actor-observer bias. For this aim, we examined the effects of different visual perspectives on individuals' external and internal attributions. In addition to this, we examined the presence or absence of an attitude change toward the death penalty due to participants' visual perspective. One week before the experiment, we measured the participants' attitudes toward the death penalty. Then, during the experiment, films produced ...
Individual differences in statistics anxiety among college students
Baloğlu, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2003-04-01)
The present study investigated differences in statistics anxiety levels based on students' gender and age. Using the statistics anxiety scores of 246 college students, a 2 x 3 between-subjects factorial multivariate analysis of covariance was performed on the six dependent variables (worth of statistics, interpretation anxiety, test and class anxiety, computational self-concept, fear of asking for help, and fear of statistics teachers) that were hypothesized to be six dimensions of statistics anxiety. Indep...
Psychometric properties of Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal for a sample of education majors
Gadzella, BM; Baloğlu, Mustafa (SAGE Publications, 2003-06-01)
Psychometric properties of the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal, Form A, were computed for 135 education majors. Analyses of reliability (internal consistency and split-half) and validity (concurrent and predictive) showed that the scale was reliable and valid measuring critical thinking abilities for students majoring in education. The best predictors of the Educational Psychology course grades were the Inference and Deduction subscale scores.
Towards an integrative perspective on the interplay between early maladaptive schemas and well-being: the role of early recollections, self-compassion and emotion regulation
Yakın, Duygu; Gençöz, Tülin; Department of Psychology (2015)
The present study was designed as a mixed method study, and was built upon two data sets, one of which was quantitative and the other qualitative. The first study aims to emphasize resourcefulness factors in schema theory from a positive psychology perspective, and emotion regulation and self-compassion were utilized as the indicators of the healthy adult mode. The data was gathered from 296 adults (179 female, 117 male). Accordingly, the mediator roles of self-compassion and emotion regulation were examine...
