In this paper we seek to gain an improved understanding of the structure of cognitive biases and their relationship with measures of intelligence and relevant non-cognitive constructs. We report on the outcomes of a study based on a heterogeneous set of seven cognitive biases — anchoring effect, belief bias, overconfidence bias, hindsight bias, bas...
Article
Full-text available
Although the anchoring effect is one of the most reliable results of experimental psychology, researchers have only recently begun to examine the role of individual differences in susceptibility to this cognitive bias. Yet, first correlational studies yielded inconsistent results, failing to identify any predictors that have a systematic effect on...

In the coronavirus “infodemic”, people are exposed to both official recommendations and to potentially dangerous pseudoscientific advice claimed to protect against COVID-19. We examined whether irrational beliefs predict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines as well as susceptibility to such misinformation. Irrational beliefs were indexed by cognitive i...

The study aimed to investigate the role of personality, thinking styles, and conspiracy mentality in health-related behaviors during the COVID-19 pandemic, i.e., recommended health behaviors according to COVID-19 guidelines and engagement in pseudoscientific practices related to COVID-19. Basic personality space was defined by the HEXACO model comp...
Article
Full-text available
The study aimed to examine several assumptions of dual process theories of reasoning by employing individual difference approach. A set of categorical syllogisms was administered to a relatively large sample of participants (N = 247) along with attached confidence rating scales, and measures of intelligence and cognitive reflection. As expected, re...

COVID-19 pandemic is a long-lasting process associated with dynamic changes within society and in individual psychological responses. Effective communication of measures by credible sources throughout the epidemic is one of the crucial factors for the containment of the disease, and the official communication about pandemics is straightforwardly di...

COVID-19 je dugotrajan proces povezan sa dinamičnim promenama unutar društva, psihološkim reakcijama i ponašanjem ljudi. Pored zdravstvenog sistema i ponašanja ljudi, efikasna komunikacija i verodostojni izvori informisanja tokom svake faze epidemije ključni su faktori ublažavanja epidemije. Pozivi na pridržavanje zaštitnih mera usmereni su ka celo...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of the research was to assess if people high on a personality trait would score better or worse on syllogisms indicative of that trait. The syllogisms corresponded to both ends of a trait continuum. Three hundred students participated in the study. The syllogisms were specifically constructed for the purpose of the research so that NEO-PI-R...

Eysenck's model of personality (PEN) was one of the most influential personality models in the 20th century. A unique characteristic of this model is the claim of psychosis-proneness being incorporated into it as one of its three basic traits - Psychoticism. The main goal of this systematic review and meta-analysis is to find out the associations b...

Decisions about one's own health range from everyday easy ones, such as taking a vitamin pill, to those made in the situations of life-threatening diseases. When it comes to choosing treatments, patients have difficulty understanding statistical information about the possible outcomes of alternative treatments, such as probabilities and risks. Thes...

This meta-analytic study investigates the relations between Disintegration-like phenomena (i.e., various aspects of symptomatology with the prefix “schizo-”, both at the clinical and the sub-clinical level) and the traits of the Psychobiological Model of Personality (PBMP). The empirically based benchmark for assuming the distinctness of the trait...
Article
Relying on a recent re-conceptualization of psychosis proneness as a personality trait, its relations with the Big Five traits were investigated in a meta-analytic study. This re-conceptualized trait – named Disintegration – is articulated as a broad, hierarchically organized, nine-faceted behavioral disposition. Disintegration is postulated to be...
Article
Anchoring effect is “one of the most reliable and robust findings of experimental psychology” (Kahneman, 2011, p.119). Research aimed to investigate (1) how both direction and distance of anchor (from anchor-free estimates) contribute to size of anchoring effect and (2) whether these effects are predictable by measures of personality traits (Big Fi...

Unutar teorija dualnih procesa, fenomeni kognitivnih pristrasnosti se razumeju kao efekti delovanja oba pretpostavljena kognitivna sistema, prvog koji automatski generiše pristrasan odgovor i drugog koji propušta da takav odgovor prepozna kao pogrešan i pokrene algoritamske procese koji potencijalno vode normativnom rešenju. Individualne razlike u...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Kognitivne pristrasnosti su tipične greške suđenja, odlučivanja, mišljenja i pamćenja koje se registruju kao predvidiva odstupanja ishoda kognitivnih procesa od normativnih kriterijuma racionalnosti. Većina danas poznatih fenomena pristrasnosti registrovana je unutar istraživačkog okvira heuristika i pristrasnosti. Pristalice konkurentnog, ekološko...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
People’s systematic tendency of overestimating their own abilities is traditionally expressed through the score of difference between subjective and objective probability of giving correct answers (overconfidence effect). In order to avoid an objection about the algebra origin of bias measure in the scores of achievement (intelligence), this study...

Aim of this paper is to conceptually, graphically and mathematically present principles of latent growth modeling (LGM). Model is presented as a part of more general approach of structural equation modeling (SEM). Application of LGM is presented through examples of result structures. Extensions and limitations of basic model are thoroughly discusse...

On the ba...

IQ argument alleges that (1) there are racial, i.e. group differences in intelligence between Black and White people, and that (2) intelligence is highly hereditary, thus (3) given differences are congenital. Results of population geneticists suggest that the notion of race (and the notion of ethnic group likewise) is only a social construct, a cul...
