Altruism based on individual values is changing Western society. People in Western countries have seen a rise in individualism for quite some time, and this in turn helps to create generations of people with altruistic mindsets.

The results of the study were published in the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology. [more...]

Gay or bisexual adults are more likely to take illicit drugs. A five-year research project undertaken by the Lesbian and Gay Foundation reported levels of last-year drug use among their lesbian, gay and bisexual survey respondents in England at seven times the rate found in the general population - especially among males. Christine Schierano and Gary R. Potter report that a small sub-section of the gay population participates in ´chemsex parties´, where groups of gay and bisexual men meet up, get high, and have sex with one another. [more...]
 

Management Psychology: International organizations are in need of an internal and an external diversity focus. Transcultural competences can support the efficiency in diverse organisations with regard to human resource management and the managing of interrelationships of the internal personnel as well as external customers, clients and suppliers. To make diverse teams work effectively and successfully, it is important that team members develop transcultural skills, Dr. Claude-Helene Mayer and Dr. Christian Martin Boness emphasize. The psychologists published the manual "Creating mental health across cultures - Coaching and training for managers". [more...]
 

Our brain fills in the gaps in our percepts – and as a result we treat the filled-in percepts as more reliable than reality itself (Copyright: Osnabrueck Universitity/ Ricardo Gameiro)
Our brain fills in the gaps in our percepts – and as a result we treat the filled-in percepts as more reliable than reality itself. This seems to be the surprising outcome of the recently published research paper from the Osnabrueck University: dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.21761. [more...]

Wu took up painting seven years ago. At first, she was told she was terrible (painting on left). But, after years of practicing and taking courses, she was told she was talented (painting on the right). (Rachel Wu UC Riverside)
One day, our brains will not work the way they used to, we won't be as "sharp" as we once were, we won't be able to remember things as easily. This is what's been engrained in us. We're even led to believe that we can't learn new skills, or take in certain information such as language, past a certain age. But, a new theory holds that it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, as adults, if we continue to learn the way we did as children, UCR psychology professor Rachel Wu asserts, we can redefine what it means to be an "aging" adult. [more...]
