    • Adolescent health and adaptation in Canada: Examination of gender and age aspects of the healthy immigrant effect 

      Kwak, Kyunghwa; Rudmin, Floyd Webster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-11-14)
      Introduction A longstanding and widely held assumption is that immigrants suffer from ill health and adaptation problems. Yet recent studies show that immigrants report the same or better state of health compared to their native-born counterparts. This phenomenon, known as the healthy immigrant effect, has been found in studies of specific health conditions of adults. The present study focuses instead ...
    • Analyzing buyer behavior when selecting green criteria in public procurement 

      Igarashi, Mieko; De Boer, Luitzen; Pfuhl, Gerit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Given the complexity of green public procurement, decisions are likely to be driven by bounded rationality. However, we know little about what determines supplier selection criteria in any given situation. This study explores buyer behavior when considering environmental criteria. We first conducted interviews and identified 12 operational procedures used by buyers. We then developed a survey to ...
    • Are psychotic experiences related to poorer reflective reasoning? 

      Mækelæ, Martin Jensen; Moritz, Steffen; Pfuhl, Gerit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-12)
      <p><i>Background</i>: Cognitive biases play an important role in the formation and maintenance of delusions. These biases are indicators of a weak reflective mind, or reduced engaging in reflective and deliberate reasoning. In three experiments, we tested whether a bias to accept non-sense statements as profound, treat metaphorical statements as literal, and suppress intuitive responses is related ...
    • Assessment of sexual behavior in rats: the potentials and pitfalls 

      Heijkoop, Roy; Huijgens, Patty Thalia; Snoeren, Eelke (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-27)
      In the field of behavioral neuroscience, it is essential to use the appropriate animal models for the topic of investigation. Using the wrong model can result in false interpretation of the results. In this review we will discuss the animal models used to study sexual behavior, with a focus on rats. We will discuss the potentials and pitfalls of the different paradigms and try to make recommendations ...
    • Association-based Concealed Information Test: A Novel Reaction Time-Based Deception Detection Method 

      Lukacs, Gaspar; Bartosz, Gula; Szegedi-Hallgato, Emese; Csifcsak, Gabor (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2017-07-15)
      In recent years, numerous studies were published on the reaction time (RT)-based Concealed Information Test (CIT). However, an important limitation of the CIT is the reliance on the recognition of the probe item, and therefore the limited applicability when an innocent person is aware of this item. In the present paper, we introduce an RT-based CIT that is based on item-category associations: ...
    • Bare noen bokstaver? 

      Gorecka, Marta Maria (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2015)
    • A Bayesian perspective on delusions: Suggestions for modifying two reasoning tasks 

      Pfuhl, Gerit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08)
      Background and objectives:<br>There are a range of mechanistic explanations on the formation and maintenance of delusions. Within the Bayesian brain hypothesis, particularly within the framework of predictive coding models, delusions are seen as an aberrant inference process characterized by either a failure in sensory attenuation or an aberrant weighting of prior experience. Testing of these ...
    • Body composition and physical fitness in women with bulimia nervosa or binge-eating disorder. 

      Mathisen, Therese Fostervold; Rosenvinge, Jan H; Friborg, Oddgeir; Pettersen, Gunn; Stensrud, Trine; Hansen, Bjørge Hermann; Underhaug, Karoline; Teinung, Elisabeth; Vrabel, KariAnne; Svendsen, Mette; Bratland-Sanda, Solfrid; Sundgot-Borgen, Jorunn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-23)
      <p><i>Objective</i>: Knowledge about physical fitness in women with bulimia nervosa (BN) or binge‐eating disorder (BED) is sparse. Previous studies have measured physical activity largely through self‐report, and physical fitness variables are mainly restricted to body mass index (BMI) and bone mineral density. We expanded the current knowledge in these groups by including a wider range of physical ...
    • Bullying Among Hospital Staff : Use of Psychometric Triage to Identify Intervention Priorities 

      Eriksen, Geir Steinar; Nygren, Ivan; Rudmin, Floyd Webster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Survey of workplace bullying in a Norwegian hospital found that 10% of nurses, therapists, and physicians (N=440) had witnessed bullying. Negative Acts Questionnaire (NAQ) scores were low, Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) scores were positive, and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ) scores were neutral. NAQ scores and having witnessed bullying both predicted low MSQ scores, ...

    • Co-occurrence of avoidant personality disorder and child sexual abuse predicts poor outcome in longstanding eating disorders 

      Rosenvinge, Jan H.; Vrabel, KariAnne R.; Hoffart, Asle; Rø, Øyvind; Martinsen, Egil W. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2009-12-16)
      Few consistent predictive factors for eating disorder have been identified across studies. In the current five year prospective study, the objective was to examine whether (1) personality disorder and child sexual abuse predict the course of severity of eating disorder symptoms after inpatient treatment and (2) how the predictors interact. A total of 74 patients with long standing eating disorder ...
    • The coming PIN code epidemic: A survey study of memory of numeric security codes 

      Rasmussen, Martin; Rudmin, Floyd Webster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010)
      Most people must remember various numeric passwords, security codes and PIN numbers for banking, credit cards, debit cards, online accounts, mobile phones, door locks, luggage locks, etc. One pilot study (N=13) developed a list of eleven strategies for remembering numeric codes, and another (N=15) optimized the research questionnaire which asked respondents about a) the number of security codes they ...
    • Comorbidity of personality disorders in anxiety disorders : a meta-analysis of 30 years of research 

      Friborg, Oddgeir; Martinussen, Monica; Kaiser, Sabine; Øvergård, Karl-Tore; Rosenvinge, Jan H (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Background. A comprehensive meta-analysis to identify the proportions of comorbid personality disorders (PD) across the major subtypes of anxiety disorders (AD) has not previously been published. Methods. A literature search identified 125 empirical papers from the period 1980-2010 on patients with panic disorders, social phobia, generalised anxiety, obsessive-compulsive (OCD) and post-traumatic ...
    • A comparison of behavioral and psychological characteristics of patients opting for surgical and conservative treatment for morbid obesity 

      Kvalem, Ingela Lundin; Bergh, Irmelin; von Soest, Tilmann; Rosenvinge, Jan H; Johnsen, Tina Avantis; Martinsen, Egil Wilhelm; Mala, Tom; Kristinsson, Jon Adalsteinn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-05)
      Background Little is known about the psychological prerequisites for weight loss maintenance after bariatric surgery. A first step in investigating whether existing knowledge of conservative weight loss treatment is applicable for lifestyle interventions postoperatively is to compare specific psychological characteristics at baseline. The aim of this study was to compare patients scheduled for ...
    • The Consumer Science of Sharing: A Discussant's Observations 

      Rudmin, Floyd Webster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-09)
      This discussant’s response to the collected articles on the consumer behavior of sharing draws on a 1983–99 record of research on the psychology of ownership and property. The major recommendations here are: (1) that sharing be defined as the simultaneous or sequential use of an object (e.g., car), a space (e.g., living room), or an intangible (e.g., identity) by more than one individual; (2) that ...
    • A cooperative function for multisensory stimuli in the induction of approach behavior of a potential mate 

      Agmo, Anders; Snoeren, Eelke (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-03-17)
      Intrasexual competition is an important element of natural selection in which the most attractive conspecific has a considerable reproductive advantage over the others. The conspecifics that are approached first often become the preferred mate partners, and could thus from a biological perspective have a reproductive advantage. This underlines the importance of the initial approach and raises the ...
    • The cross-cultural validity of the Resilience Scale for Adults: A comparison between Norway and Brazil 

      Hjemdal, Odin; Roazzi, A.; Dias, M G; Friborg, Oddgeir (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-18)
      Background: The resilience construct is of increasing interest in clinical and health psychology. The Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA) is a measure of protective factors. The evidence supporting its construct validity is good, however evidence of cross-cultural validity is modest. The present study explored the factorial invariance of the RSA across a Brazilian and a Norwegian sample, as well as ...
