Test Anxiety, Low Self-esteem, and Conformity

Lee, See Woo 01 1900 (has links)
The present study has a threefold purpose. First, it will attempt to investigate whether the presentation of the bogus group norm is effective to exert influence on an individual subject to modify his original response in the direction of the norm. Secondly, it will investigate relationships between the subject's level of test anxiety and his conformity behavior in the simple judgmental situation. Thirdly, it will further explore whether test anxiety, as measured by a questionnaire, and low self-esteem, as measured by feelings of personal inadequacy, are comparable constructs.

Conquering through Non-Conformity: Answering Christ’s Call to Counterculturalism

Morrison, Daniel L. 06 1900 (has links)
The book of Revelation reflects a story of the past that speaks to the present. The Apocalypse presents a discourse that highlights a variety of Christians in Asia Minor who must decide whether they will remain faithful in their allegiance to Jesus Christ or demonstrate unfaithfulness to Christ and his kingdom by conforming to the majority culture by engaging in practices of the broader society that stand in contradiction to their faith. When faced with such a dilemma, various people, including Christians, respond in a variety of ways. For some, their responses bring glory to God while others bring disgrace to the name of the God they say they serve. Writers often discuss Christ’s confrontation and judgment of the Roman Empire. Few, if any, address Jesus’s confrontations with the seven churches of Asia Minor. This study combines Norman Fairclough’s theory of Critical Discourse Analysis and Jay Lemke’s theory of intertextuality to demonstrate that Rev 1-3, the incorporation of concepts and ideas appearing in other resources, the further development of the Apocalypse, and the historical context in which John composed the work present the kingdom of God as an alternative empire to which he belongs and commits himself as a citizen in resisting the power, practices, and allure of Rome. Though the assemblies to which he writes experience a variety of social, political, and religious circumstances, the messages to the churches come together to reveal that Christians, no matter their power or position in society, have a mandate to live as citizens of Christ’s kingdom who maintain a countercultural stance for the sake of the gospel. John depicts Christ as king of this alternative empire, who confronts each of his communities regarding their allegiance to him, demonstrated by their non-conformity to the practices of the broader culture regarding how they function in the various power structures in which they live. He then uses the later visions of the Apocalypse to depict Christ’s vindication of those who maintain a countercultural posture in relation to the Roman Empire and highlights the advantages and blessings of non-conformity, while noting the disadvantages and curses of conformity. Throughout the history of the Christian faith, various segments of the church have faced opposition from the surrounding culture. Christians today maintain the same mandate as the early church to resist the allure of the worldly powers that surround them and remain loyal to Jesus. In addition to providing an analysis of John’s writing for early Christians, this dissertation also presents a model for Christians—no matter their time or place in history—to follow regarding how they interact with the world around them. / Thesis / Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

A more convenient truth: using social influence to promote pro-environmental beliefs and behaviors

Cardinal, Brecken Quinn 07 August 2010 (has links)
The present study examined how environmental attitudes and behaviors can be affected using social norms. The study employed a 2 (participant position: pro-environmental or anti-environmental) × 2 (context condition: face-toace or computer mediated communication) × 2 (normative pressure: unanimous or non-unanimous) quasi-experimental design. Participant position was a nonrandomized group classification factor based on responses to a screening survey. Attitude extremity was controlled for in analyses. Participants initially anti-environmental reform and in the non-unanimous normative pressure condition had significantly less attitude change than that of those who were anti-environmental reform and in the unanimous normative pressure condition. Pro-environmental reform people were not affected by the variations in group pressure. Higher rates of conformity found in the computer mediated context did not translate into attitude change. No differences were found in political behavior. Findings suggest that advertising employing unanimous normative pressure in a face-toace interaction would persuade anti-environmentalists to become more pro-environmental.

Effects of clothing conformity on preschool children's social interactions

Spencer, Marilyn Sanderson 07 February 2013 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of clothing conformity on the social interaction of two groups of preschool children of two socio-economic classes. Subjects were six randomly selected children from a group of fifteen nursery school children, representing the middle economic class and six children from a group of thirteen Head Start children designated as lower economic class. The subjects were observed for 45 minutes while engaged in free play periods. Three separate observation series were conducted while the subjects were wearing their own play clothes, experimental garments, and when again dressed in their own play clothing. Statistical analysis of the number of verbalizations initiated by subjects to themselves and to others indicated that clothing conformity did not appear to affect preschool children's social interactions. There were no lasting interactional trends, and experimental clothing did not affect the social interaction of children of middle and lower economic backgrounds. Anecdotal records revealed that the lower-class children had considerable interest in and awareness of clothing. This was in contrast to an extreme lack of interest exhibited by the middle-class children. / Master of Science
