We analyzed the content of “Friday Khutbas” delivered in Turkish mosques between January 2001 and December 2018 to test the prediction of moral foundations theory (MFT) literature that threat salience would lead to an increased endorsement of binding moral foundations. As societal‐level indicators of threat, we examined (1) historical data on the n...

In Study 1 (N = 550), Turkish participants rated faces with higher levels of perceived Dark Triad traits as...

The study of moral judgements often centres on moral dilemmas in which options consistent with deontological perspectives (that is, emphasizing rules, individual rights and duties) are in conflict with options consistent with utilitarian judgements (that is, following the greater good based on consequences). Greene et al. (2009) showed that psychol...

Sonuçları tüm insanları ve çevreyi etkilemesine rağmen bilimsel olarak gerçekliği tespit edilmiş küresel ısınma gibi sorunların varlığı insanların bir kısmı tarafından reddedilmektedir. Bu konudaki alanyazına göre bilimsel sorunların varlığını reddetme ideolojik değerlendirmelerin etkisiyle şekillenebilmektedir. Cambpell ve Kay (2014) tarafından ge...

Some of the recent studies suggested that people can make accurate inferences about the level of the Big Five and the Dark Triad personality traits in strangers by only looking at their faces. However, later findings provided only partial support and the evidence is mixed regarding which traits can be accurately inferred from faces. In the current...

In the first half of the twentieth century, Wittgenstein claimed that philosophy is ended in his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and that he found the solution to all questions previously asked in philosophy. He later traveled the world and changed his mind in the early stages of his work, especially after reading Kierkegaard and Nietzsche. Psycholo...

Question
Hi,
I'm working on a data that each sentence is in separate rows in dataframe. I want to determine word frequency in each row with a word list that I have created. Then I would like to add these values to my dataframe as a new variable in R.
For example:
Let's say, I have a list of words that contains apple and banana. And I have three independent sentences in rows:
1. X x x apple x x banana x apple.
2. X apple x x x x.
3. X x babana x apple x.
Now I want to calculate how many times the words in my list have been repeated. As a result, the new column I want to create is:
1. = 3
2. = 1
3. = 2
Thanks in advance.
Question
Hello to everyone.
Tweets can be downloaded through the R with the Twitter API. Various filters can be used for these tweets (e.g. language, region, time period). While doing so, a word or hashtag is determined and the tweets containing these can be downloaded.
Well, is there any way to get tweets from a particular time frame or location without using any hashtags or words via Twitter API? I just want to get tweets using filters without any specific word or hashtag. I wonder if there is a function like that on Twitter's premium or enterprise API account?
Thanks in advance.

Bu çalışmanın amacı 31 Mart 2019 Türkiye Cumhuriyeti yerel seçimleri döneminde bireylerin sosyal medya hesaplarından (twitter ve facebook) seçimler hakkında sahte haberler paylaşmaları ile çeşitli psikolojik değişkenler arasındaki olası ilişkileri incelemektir. Alanyazında sahte haber paylaşımı çoğunlukla iletişim ve medya çalışmacılarının bakış açılarıyla incelenmiştir. Bu çalışmada ise sosyal psikoloji perspektifinden sahte haber paylaşımının olası yordayıcılarını incelenerek sahte haber paylaşımı yapan bireylerin ortak ve birbirlerinden farklılaşan özellikleri ortaya koyulmaktadır. Araştırmada sahte haber paylaşımı davranışı ve analitik düşünme, belirsizliğe karşı tolerans, parti aidiyeti, iç grupla özdeşim, sosyal baskınlık yönelimi, sağ kanat yetkeciliği, siyasi dünya görüşleri ve komplo teorilerine inanç yatkınlığı arasındaki bağlar araştırılmaktadır. Araştırmada katılımcıların gerçek sosyal medya hesaplarından 31 Mart seçimlerinden on beş gün önce ve on beş gün sonra yaptıkları paylaşımlar arşivlenmekte ve bu haberler teyit.org tarafından incelenerek sahte olup olmadıkları yönünde karar verilmektedir. Ardından sahte haber paylaşım sıklığı ile temel sosyal psikolojik değişkenler arasındaki potansiyel ilişkiler incelenmektedir.

The relationship between ingroup identification and ingroup favoritism has been studied for many years. In the Social Identity Theory literature, studies show that the direction and strength of this relationship are shaped under the influence of many different variables. The variables questioned in this topic generally consist of factors that drawn on levels of analysis at intragroup or intergroup levels except for the self-esteem hypothesis. In this study, morality as an evolutionary based intuitional motivation was investigated in terms of its effects on this relationship. Morality was examined from a new theoretical approach, Morality as Cooperation Theory. It was claimed that giving importance to certain moral dimensions will have a moderator effect on the relationship between ingroup identification and ingroup favoritism. Additionally, ideological orientation and core motivations of social conservatism, resistance to change and opposition to equality, were examined as covariate variables due to their associations with different moral dimensions and behaviors towards outgroups in the literature. In this context, one cross-sectional and one experimental study were carried out. In the first study, the pattern of the relationships between morality, ideology, ingroup identification, and ingroup favoritism were explored. It was found that reciprocity dimension of morality has a moderator effect on the relationship between ingroup identification and ingroup favoritism. Considering the results of the first study, in the second study, reciprocity dimension was manipulated, and its moderator role was tested by an experimental design. Consistent with the first study, the results of the second study revealed a significant moderator effect of reciprocity dimension. The findings, contributions, and limitations of the studies were discussed in the context of the relevant literature and suggestions were presented for future studies.
