Quite confuse about social cognitive theory (SCT) variables?
when I try to find SCT variable. it's come out with the three reciprocal determinism (behavioral, personal and environment). when reading articles its discuss about self efficacy and outcome expectancies. self efficacy and outcome expectancies are related to which reciprocal determinism? is it behavioral or personal? I don't think it's environmental..
other theories i saw straight to the point and even provide IV and DV. so researchers could know and justify their study.
what is your opinion?

Abdul - what you are referring to seems to relate more to internal versus external locus of control. Environmental issues are more likely to relate to external loci - and often outside of the individual's control. The attached article might assist.
The baseline interpretation, to me, is that self-efficacy relates to an individual's perception of their ability to achieve behavioural change - whereas outcome expectancy relates to their perception of what they actually will change.
There could be a simple out-of-box perspective to help for digesting, by looking at the inter-relations of the the three reciprocal determination, first; a personal behavior, environmental behavior, and personal environment; then after, going back to influence of each variable could be more practical to analyze.

As a lead researcher, I am applying for a grant to the national science center. I am looking for junior researchers (without a PhD) in the fields of linguistics (applied linguistics, and psycholinguistics), political communication and cognitive science. This will be a 3-year, interdisciplinary project carried out by a renowned Polish university. I am looking for doctoral students from the United States, as this will be a comparative study in the field of political communication in Poland and the US.
Is anyone interested in participating?

Social Learning Theory vs Social Cognitive Theory?
- Deleted profile
While I am aware that there are some similarities (tenets) between Ronald Akers’ Social Learning Theory (SLT) and Albert Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) (e.g. similar tenets - reinforcement and observational learning), my question is what’s unique about Akers’ SLT that Bandura’s SCT can’t answer, and vice-versa?
- David Hirst
In the main thread, I remarked that a "logic of opinion" would provide the epistemological (and metaphysical) bases for Orwell's imagined Ingsoc. In the infamous "Ministry of Truth" scenes, O'Brien comments on Winston's weakness in metaphysics; and indeed, the Party are masterly metaphysicians... the opinion of the Party is reality, and whatever deviates from that opinion is false (though it might *become* true - truth and falsity are relative to the opinion of the Party, which can never change. Therefore, if what was false becomes true, it has always been true. This is also inherent in the logic of opinion).
This is relativism pushed to its extreme, yet it is entirely 'logical' once one accepts the basic hypothesis that there is no distinction between a "truth" and a "widely-held belief".
I'm not, of course, suggesting that this is a serious argument against relativism in general; but it does provide an interesting little though experiment: how would a relativist argue against the parallel between her beliefs and those of Orwell's Ingsoc?

I had found a prehistoric site located in ambit of an old cemetery,some rural that was living near the cemetery,didn't allow me to excavate or to study this site,whereas these graves were very old and didn't belong to anybody(i never understood their reason)unfortunately this site has been destroyed(due to road construction)and i think if i had had enough anthropological knowledge and skill,this event would have never happend.
Value dominants of the concept "friendship' in social communities
- Irina Mikhailovna Pechonkina
My student and I research the problem to prove that the concept 'friendship' (and 'friend') is a universal value, but at the same time this concept has its own peculiarity in every nation.It's very interesting to analyze the value dominants of this phenomenon in every culture(the definition by Roget) from the point of view of etymology and its usage in the proverbs, maxims etc. Has a concept 'friendship' undergone changes throughout the ages?Thus, there are a lot of changes in Russian and English- from a real, honest, generous friend, almost brother to a person of commerce, entertainment, profit. For instance," we can't buy our friends advantageously, but we can sell them advantageously" or "If you have nothing to offer, offer at least a friendship"etc.
