Introduction
Natalia Frankowska currently works at the Institute of Social Psychology, SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities. Natalia does research in Evolutionary Psychology, Experimental Psychology, and Social Psychology. In her current project, she investigates the social consequences of the behavioral immune system (BIS) and the perception of sounds from different spatial localization.

The behavioral immune system (BIS) represents a set of actions to avoid contracting infectious diseases (Murray & Schaller, 2012). For the reason that having contact with outgroup members entails a heightened risk of infection (Schaller & Neuberg, 2012), pathogen avoidance motives have been shown to be linked with negativity toward foreign individu...

Topics of prejudice, discrimination, and negative attitudes toward out-groups have attracted much attention of social scientists during theCOVID-19 pandemic, as the preference for social distancing can originate from a perception of threat.One of the theoretical approaches that offer an explanation for avoidance tendencies is behavioral immune syst...

Cross-sex friendships play an important role both in women’s and men’s lives. On the one hand, cross-sex friends can be our great companions allowing for the substantial level of intimacy (Monseur, 1992; Bleske-Rechek & Buss, 2001). However, the opposite-sex friendship (OSF) can also serve as a medium by which people may seek and initiate both shor...

Although replication is a central tenet of science, direct replications are rare in psychology. This research tested variation in the replicability of thirteen classic and contemporary effects across 36 independent samples totaling 6,344 participants. In the aggregate, ten effects replicated consistently. One effect – imagined contact reducing prej...

This manuscript contains our responses to several commentaries about the Many Labs Project (Klein et al., 2014).
Preprint
This dataset is from the Many Labs Replication Project [1] in which 13 effects were replicated across 36 samples and over 6,000 participants. Data from the replications are included, along with demographic variables about the participants and contextual information about the environment in which the replication was conducted. Data were collected in...

Full-text available
The fact that men and women experience sexual attraction toward their opposite-sex friends has been evidenced in various studies. It has also been shown that there is a close parallel between preferences for opposite-sex friends and mate preferences, i.e., that men prioritize physical attractiveness of their OSFs, while women prioritize their male...

Social resemblance, like group membership or similar attitudes, increases the mimicry of the observed emotional facial display. In this study, we investigate whether facial self-resemblance (manipulated by computer morphing) modulates emotional mimicry in a similar manner. Participants watched dynamic expressions of faces that either did or did not...

The behavioral immune system (BIS) is one of the broadly examined subjects in the evolutionary field. It aims to detect potentially threatening sources of infection by triggering emotional (disgust) and behavioral (avoidance) reactions. Visible inflammation cues or coming from a different region (inhabited by new parasites) can result in the increa...

Negative attitudes and stigmatization can originate from the perception of a disease-related threat. Following the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is often suggested that incidents of discriminatory behavior are the result of defense mechanisms aimed at avoiding pathogens. According to the behavioral immune system theory, people are motivated t...

Many studies have explored the evaluative effects of vertical (up/down) or horizontal (left/right) spatial locations. However, little is known about the role of information that comes from the front and back. Based on multiple theoretical considerations, we propose that spatial location of sounds is a cue for message valence, such that a message co...

In the Human Penguin Project (N = 1755), 15 research groups from 12 countries collected body temperature, demographic variables, social network indices, seven widely-used psychological scales and two newly developed questionnaires (the Social Thermoregulation and Risk Avoidance Questionnaire (STRAQ-1) and the Kama Muta Frequency Scale (KAMF)). They...

We conducted preregistered replications of 28 classic and contemporary published findings, with protocols that were peer reviewed in advance, to examine variation in effect magnitudes across samples and settings. Each protocol was administered to approximately half of 125 samples that comprised 15,305 participants from 36 countries and territories....

Social thermoregulation theory posits that modern human relationships are pleisiomorphically organized around body temperature regulation. In two studies (N = 1755) designed to test the principles from this theory, we used supervised machine learning to identify social and non-social factors that relate to core body temperature. This data-driven an...

People seek high positions not to gain influence over others but to satisfy their need for personal control. Personal control tends to have positive interpersonal consequences. If this is the case, does power indeed corrupt? We argue that holding a high position is associated both with perceptions of power (influence over others) and personal contr...

Dijksterhuis and van Knippenberg (1998) reported that participants primed with an intelligent category (“professor”) subsequently performed 13.1% better on a trivia test than participants primed with an unintelligent category (“soccer hooligans”). Two unpublished replications of this study by the original authors, designed to verify the appropriate...

Are people able to objectively evaluate fairness of the principles ruling the distribution of goods? Such principles often encourage or threaten their own interests and as such people may lose objectivity. But maybe howling injustice is evaluated positively if it is in favour of one’s interest? We present three experiments, that aim to verify the h...
Article
While direct replications such as the “Many Labs” project are extremely valuable in testing the reliability of published findings across laboratories, they reflect the common reliance in psychology on single vignettes or stimuli, which limits the scope of the conclusions that can be reached. New experimental tools and statistical techniques make it...

This study examined the effect of temperament on preferences for painted artwork. Our preferences are determined by different personality traits. The study presented here was a replication of the current study of Terror Management Theory (TMT) with the structures of temperament as individual differences. The results showed significant differences i...

Question
Hi,
Does anybody know any papers with experiments that use tinder in its manipulation or real behaviour in tinder as a DV measurement? I am not interested in questionnaire studies but rather in an example or a guide how to do a procedure using tinder.
