Introduction
My research focuses on leisure, play, and health, but also spans a diverse range of subject areas, including psychometrics, human dimensions of nature, digital data, and cross-cultural studies. Current projects focus on human-environment interactions at the nexus of leisure, health, and nature, and the mechanisms to cultivate active lifestyles across the lifespan.

Leisure engagement has risen as a salient societal issue during the COVID-19 pandemic, not only because it provides a pathway for people to continue meeting their physical, cognitive, and social-emotional needs, but also due to the phenomenal juxtaposition of general increases in leisure time and unparalleled constraints. This study reports the res...

The growing global interest in playfulness research calls for increasing research cross-pollination that often necessitates instrument translation with cultural sensitivity. Taking a collaborative and iterative translation approach, we developed a Chinese version of the Adult Playfulness Trait Scale–an instrument originally developed and validated...

Maintaining cultural sensitivity has been a challenge in subjective wellbeing (SWB) research involving nonwestern populations, which continues to primarily use a quantitative approach and Westernoriginating measurements. Accounting for culturally specific characteristics of the study area and sample, we employed a concurrent mixed-methods phenomeno...

Purpose Online review bias research has predominantly focused on self-selection biases on the user’s side. By collecting online reviews from multiple platforms and examining their biases in the unique digital environment of “Chinanet,” this paper aims to shed new light on the multiple sources of biases embedded in online reviews and potential inter...
Article
Full-text available
Psychological studies of playfulness have been deeply shaped by the traditional trait approach that emphasizes assessment of a decontextualized trait. Integrating insights gained from broader social psychology and personality theories, this paper introduces an interactionist framework for playfulness research and provides conceptual and measurement...
Article
Full-text available
For evolved phenotypical characteristics to be retained by organisms, the adaptive advantages of those characteristics must outweigh their costs. The costs of play can involve injury, susceptibility to predation, and use of time that might otherwise be devoted to food acquisition while its advantages might include learning, socialization, and physi...

Article
Full-text available
This research is part of a larger effort that integrates advances from personality research and playfulness research to develop a valid and reliable measurement of adult playfulness. We proposed a latent network trait conceptualization that focuses on the interconnected cognitive qualities central to playfulness, strictly distinguished from their s...
Article
Full-text available
As part of the systematic scale validation of the Adult Playfulness Trait Scale (APTS), a measurement that we developed along with a conceptualization of playfulness based on a synthesis of personality research and play literature (Shen, Chick, & Zinn, 2014), this paper provides additional tests of the APTS' psychometric properties. We empirically...

Twenty-two measures of color rendition have been reviewed and summarized. Each measure was computed for 401 illuminants comprising incandescent, light-emitting diode (LED) -phosphor, LED-mixed, fluorescent, high-intensity discharge (HID), and theoretical illuminants. A multidimensional scaling analysis (Matrix Stress = 0.0731, R<sup>2</sup> = 0.976...
Article
In the early 1980s, the first author (Chick) was the University of Illinois representative to the Human Relations Area Files (HRAF), Inc. At an HRAF meeting in New Haven, Mel Ember recommended the examination of leisure, or aspects of leisure, against a backdrop of cultural complexity because “it correlates with everything.” For its part, leisure h...
Article
Full-text available
This article assesses the status of hierarchical leisure constraints theory (Crawford & Godbey, 1987; Crawford, Jackson, & Godbey, 1991) regarding many issues. Such issues include clarification and elaboration of some aspects of the original model, a review of studies which have used or examined the model and the extent to which they are confirmato...
Article
Full-text available
Serious leisure and casual leisure have served as two contrasting concepts for describing leisure experiences. The purpose of this article is to reevaluate the traditional dichotomy of serious leisure-casual leisure in light of accumulated empirical evidence. Greater theoretical attention to the interconnectedness and continuity between the two con...
Article

The wildlife value orientation (WVO) construct has been used to describe deeply held beliefs about how humans should relate to wildlife. As part of a larger effort to test the usefulness of the WVO construct across cultures, we conducted pilot testing of the construct in China. A conceptual and methodological framework developed by the project's in...

This study was undertaken in view of the large and growing numbers of older adults in the People's Republic of China. We examined the differences in the leisure life between rural and urban elderly residents. Significant rural-urban differences were found in the pattern of leisure involvement and general per-ceptions about leisure life of aged peop...
