Article
Full-text available
Last decades have witnessed a progressing decline of social trust, which has been predominantly linked to worsening economic conditions and increasing social inequality. In the present research we propose a different type of explanation for the observed decline - cognitive load related to technological development and the accelerating pace of moder...

From the perspective of Dynamical Systems Theory, the collapse of complexity is one of the crucial phenomena involved in conflict escalation and intractability. It happens when the relations between distinct psychological or social elements involved in conflict become aligned and begin to mutually reinforce each other. At an individual level, a col...
Article
Full-text available
The speed of social and technological changes is constantly increasing. Change is a pre-requisite for economic development but this increasing speed carries additional costs that may largely affect the ability of the social systems to adopt them. While the financial costs constitute a limit to adoption, the psychological and social costs may also p...
Article
In this paper we address the destructiveness and constructiveness of conflict in a Dynamical Systems Theory framework. We propose that destructive and constructive conflict processes constitute two relatively orthogonal dimensions, of which each is associated with specific variables and components, and has its own distinct dynamics.Destructive proc...
Article
Full-text available
Quality is usually considered to be an attribute of an object, its degree of excellence or, more subjectively, fitness for use. Stemming from this point of view, the goal of most ranking systems is to find efficient ways of discovering, or rather uncovering, the quality of specific products or services. However, from a social psychological perspect...

Article
The present research investigated the effects of social class on interpersonal trust. In a series of experiments, we showed how the contextualist socio-cognitive tendencies of the lower class and the solipsistic tendencies of the upper class were reflected in their trusting attitudes and behaviors. In Study 1, upper class individuals expressed the...
Article
Full-text available
People are motivated to hold favorable attitudes about the systems on which they depend, so they justify (i.e., rationalize, defend and bolster) forms of social and economic inequality, even if the inequality is disadvantageous to them. This paper examines how this system-justifying motivation is reflected in behaviors involving interpersonal trust...
Article
Full-text available
Theory on trust development, dissolution, and restoration suggest that trust is a dynamic state that varies in predictable and often systematic ways. Empirical research, however, lags behind the theoretical development, particularly with respect to understanding the trajectory of trust. This article reviews theory on dynamics of trust and some of t...
Article
Full-text available
Rapid development of information and communications technologies (ICT) has triggered profound changes in how people manage their social contacts in both informal and professional contexts. ICT mediated communication may seem limited in possibilities compared to face-to-face encounters, but research shows that puzzlingly often it can be just as effe...
