What is the role of narcissism in the relationship between and

Dobrucali, Berfin
Özkan, Türker
The contributing factors of aggressive driving have been studying in the last decades. Both impulsivity and narcissism are associated with aggressive driver behaviors. Although the role of these two factors were examined in the same studies, the combined role of these two factors hasn't been studied yet. To understand the combined effect of them, in the present study, the moderated mediation model for examining the relationships of narcissism, impulsivity, and aggressive driver behavior was developed and tested. Three hundred and four participants completed an online survey battery comprised of Demographic Information Form, Five-Factor Narcissism Inventory-Short Form, Barrat Impulsiveness ScaleShort Form, and Driving Anger Expression Inventory. The moderated mediation analyses were conducted using PROCESS macro developed by Hayes and Preacher (2013). The results revealed that only the relationship between vulnerable narcissism and the use of vehicle to express anger is mediated by attentional impulsiveness. Also, this relationship is moderated by grandiose narcissism. In detail, grandiose narcissism moderates the direct effect of vulnerable narcissism on attentional impulsivity and also the direct effect of attentional impulsivity on the use of vehicle to express anger. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings and recommendations for future studies are discussed.


Understanding young drivers in Turkey: Time perspective, driving skills, and driver behaviors
Tekeş, Burcu; ÖZDEMİR, FATİH; Özkan, Türker (2020-11-01)
Many studies have focused on the tendency of young drivers to drive riskily. However, little is known regarding time perspective, driving skills, and driver behaviors, even though time perspective is an important predictor of many risky behaviors. Time perspective is a general construct of the thoughts relating to present, past, and future. Broadly, (i) past time perspective is related to the recall of reconstructed past scenarios; (ii) present time perspective means attending to immediate and salient stimu...

Azık, Derya; Özkan, Türker; Department of Psychology (2015)
The aim of the current study was to investigate self-regulatory driving practices of old and young drivers by examining underlying factors and possible benefits on drivers’ aberrant behaviors. 258 active male drivers (120 older, 138 younger) participated in the study. Older drivers’ age range was determined as 60-75 and younger drivers’ age range was determined as 21-30. For testing motivator factors of self-regulatory driving practices, Health and Functional Abilities Scale (Molnar et al., 2013), Self-Rate...
Self-Assessed Driving Skills and Risky Driver Behaviour Among Young Drivers: A Cross-Sectional Study
Lajunen, Timo; Sullman, Mark J. M.; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma (2022-04-13)
The first few years of driving is a critical period when driving skills develop and the driving style is established. While the actual driving skills improve during the first few years of driving, a novice driver’s view of himself/herself as a safe and/or skilful driver also develops rapidly. The aim of this study was to investigate self-evaluated driver safety and perceptual-motor skills among different age groups of young drivers, along with the relationships between self-evaluated skills and driving beha...

A Multimodal Approach for Aggressive Driving Detection
Kumtepe, Omurcan; Yuncu, Enes; Akar, Gözde (2016-05-19)
Aggressive driving behavior is among the important causes of traffic accidents. Hence, detection of driver aggressiveness has an importance in terms of decreasing the number of traffic accidents. Collected driving data while the vehicle is in traffic can be used to make inferences about the aggressiveness of the driver. In this study, a multimodal method is proposed in order to detect driver aggressiveness. The proposed method is based on utilizing the visual data taken from the on vehicle camera and sensor...
