Háttér és célkitűzések Tanulmányunkban a magyar nemzeti csoporthoz kapcsolódó kollektív áldozati vélekedéseket kívántuk vizsgálni egy kérdőívben szereplő nyitott kérdés segítségével. Tanulmányunk három fő kérdése: (1) Milyen kollektív áldozati vélekedések jelennek meg a csoporttagok körében? (2) Milyen kapcsolat van az egyes vélekedések között? (3)...
Article
Full-text available
The present study examined the interplay between chronic intelligence beliefs, manipulated intelligence beliefs and self-handicapping processes. Prior studies showed that holding more of a fixed intelligence theory makes one vulnerable to resorting to self-protective mechanisms such as self-handicapping, while growth intelligence mindset can serve...

Self-handicapping is not only present among amateurs, but also even among the most elite athletes. The vast majority of the research investigates self-handicapping in academic context among students with mediocre performance. However, scientific examinations of predictors among top performers in the field of sports is terra incognita. Among the pre...

The present study aimed to assess the nomological validity of the Assessment Centre (AC). More specifically, the authors investigated the relationship between theoretically related personality variables and AC ratings in a personnel selection procedure. Previous studies have reported contradictory findings regarding the nomological validity of the...
Article

Previous research has mainly focused on the negative correlates of dark triad (DT) personality traits. However, recent findings indicate that DT have positive, adaptive aspects. Specifically, empirical studies revealed a positive relationship between subclinical narcissism and mental toughness. Increased mental toughness is connected to various pos...

Turnover is very well covered topic, companies and researchers are also motivated to discover all his aspects because it is very costly. In addition to replacement fees, there are hidden costs such as productivity loss, workplace safety issues, and moral damage (O'Connel and Kung, 2007; Hancock et al., 2011; Shown, Johnson and Lockhardt, 2005). Thi...

The present study examined the incremental validity of dark personality traits (DT) in predicting workplace outcomes beyond the predictive power of HEXACO model of personality. A sample of 350 Hungarian working adults completed self-report measures of the DT, HEXACO model of personality, and workplace outcomes such as organizational citizenship beh...
Article
Full-text available
People with high dark triad tendencies are often found in leadership positions. Yet research is lacking on whether dark triad personality traits positively correlate with the height of leadership levels (no leadership position, low-level leaders, high-level leaders, head and founder of the company). To explore this relationship between the dark tri...

The present studies were aimed at developing the Hungarian version of the Short Dark Triad questionnaire (SD3-HU). The internal structure of the translated questionnaire was examined with confirmatory factor analysis and exploratory structural equation modeling. Then the construct and concurrent validity of the Hungarian version was tested. The obt...

In the current paper, we report the analysis of the relationship between meritocracy belief and subjective well-being using two large international databases, the European Social Survey Program (N = 44,387) and the European Values Study Program (N = 51,752), involving data gathered from 36 countries in total. We investigated whether low status indi...
Article
Social psychological research on collective victimhood has focused on just a few ways in which people think about the ingroup's victimization that imply certain assumptions and limit our understanding of collective victim beliefs. Additionally, different historical and socio-political contexts may make different collective victim beliefs relevant....

The authoritarian personality is characterized by unquestionining obedience and respect to authority. System justification theory (SJT) argues that people are motivated to defend, bolster, and justify aspects of existing social, economic, and political systems. Commitment to the status quo is also a key characteristic of the authoritarian personali...
Article
Collective memories of historical ingroup victimization can be linked to prosocial or hostile intergroup outcomes. We hypothesize that such discrepant responses are predicted by different construals of the ingroup’s victimization in relation to other groups (i.e., comparative victim beliefs). Using improved measures of inclusive and exclusive victi...
Article
The present study employed European Social Survey (ESS) data collected between 2002 and 2018 to investigate system justification versus derogation in Hungary. In all nine ESS rounds, system derogation was stronger than system justification. System justification was consistently at its strongest among those who had voted for the ruling party, be it...

In our study, we investigated the relationship between collective narcissism and group-based moral exclusion. Since collective narcissists are motivated to see their group as unique and superior, and tend to show hostility towards outgroups threatening this presumed superiority, we hypothesized that perceived intergroup threat and social distance c...

Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter provides a comprehensive review of the existing social psychological literature on collective victim beliefs. This mostly includes comparative victim beliefs—above all, competitive victimhood and, to a lesser extent, inclusive victim consciousness. Other collective victim beliefs that have been studied include siege mentality, PIVO and...

Háttér és célkitűzések: A jungi alapú személyiségmodell számos alkalmazott pszichológiai területen népszerű koncepció. Bár erőteljes az igény a jungi típusok mérhetővé tételére, magyarra adaptált, honosított, megfelelően bemért mérőeszköz tekintetében hiány mutatkozott mind a kutatás, mind a gyakorlati felhasználás területén. Vizsgálatunk célja a G...

Research on linguistic biases shows that stereotypic expectancies are implicitly reflected in language and thereby subtly communicated to message recipients. Research on the Negation Bias shows that the use of negations (e.g., not stupid vs. smart) is more pronounced in descriptions of stereotype-inconsistent compared with stereotype-consistent beh...

Academic self-handicapping is a very popular subject of research in educational psychology, in which a growing number of related findings are reported. However, apart from a recent meta-analysis (Schwinger et al. in J Educ Psychol 106(3):744–761, 2014), the last comprehensive review of the subject was published 17 years ago (Urdan and Midgley in Ed...

Anti‐immigrant attitudes are not only widespread among Eurosceptic nationalists, but also among people who feel that immigration threatens European values and identity. We therefore assumed that the connection between nationalism and xenophobia can only partially explain the rise of hostile attitudes in the post‐2015 period. In two online surveys (...

The present study examined dark triad personality traits as predictors of in-role and extra-role work-related behaviors above and beyond the effects of relevant dispositional and situational variables. 256 Hungarian working adults (Mage = 37.121 years, SDage = 11.99 years) took part in the present study. The results showed that only subclinical psy...

The relationship between Machiavellianism and emotion management features is highly debated. In our study we try to clarify the controversial findings by highlighting the role of gender differences. Three studies with different (undergraduate and employed) participants were conducted to investigate gender differences in Machiavellianism-related per...

Tanulmányunkban a kollektív áldozati tudat nevű jelenség magyar nyelvű összefoglalóját kívánjuk nyújtani. Kollektív áldozati tudatról akkor beszélünk, ha egy csoport tagjai között nagyjából egybehangzóan osztott az a vélekedés, hogy a saját csoport egyszeri vagy akár sorozatos támadásoknak volt kitéve más csoportok által. Ezeket a támadásokat, amel...

We investigated the “rigidity of the right” hypothesis in the context of the far‐right breakthrough in the 2010 Hungarian parliamentary elections. This hypothesis suggests that psychological characteristics having to do with need for security and certainty attract people to a broad‐based right‐wing ideology. A nationally representative sample (N =...

Three studies examined how members of a national group react to in-group wrongdoings. We expected that perceived in-group moral superiority would lead to unwillingness to repair the aggression. We also expected that internal-focused emotions such as group-based guilt and group-based shame would predict specific, misdeed-related reparative intention...

Homok a gépezetben: az érzelmek hányattatott sorsa Jóllehet, a pszichológiában az érzelmek tanulmányozásának igénye hamar felme-rült (James, 1890/1981), mégis a 20. század túlnyomó többségében az érzelmek hol nem jelentek meg a pszichológiai kutatásokban, 21 hol...

Based on our comparison of political orientation and research interests of social psychologists in capitalist Western countries versus post-Communist Eastern European countries, we suggest that Duarte and colleagues' claim of liberal bias in the field seems American-centric. We propose an alternative account of political biases which focuses on the...

The present study aims to understand how Machiavellians switch from one kind of response to another in different circumstances to maximize their profit. We set up a specific experimental paradigm that involved both a cooperative and competitive version of a public goods game. We found that Machiavellianism accounts for the total amount of money pai...

The problem of "liberal bias" among personality and social psychologists has been widely discussed in recent years (Haidt, 2011; Duarte et al., in press; Inbar, Lammers, 2012). Most of these discussions extrapolated findings observed in American and Western European social psychology to the whole discipline. This article presents a first insight in...

This research was aimed at examining just-world beliefs, system justification, authoritarianism, and cognitive style in a nationally representative sample (N = 1000) in Hungary, and at relating these phenomena to various demographic and political variables to find out whether the findings in Hungary would differ from its Western counterparts. Accor...

Identification with one's national in-group is difficult to measure. Unitary scales of in-group identification have led to contradictory results. It seems that unitary scales are inadequate both conceptually and empirically (for a review, see ASHMORE, DEAUX, & MCLAUGHLIN-VOLPE, 2004). In our studies, first, we have developed a Hungarian national id...

Jones and Berglas (1978) define self-handicapping as any action or choice of performance setting that enhances the opportunity to externalize (or excuse) failure and to internalize (reasonably accept credit for) success (p. 406). The present study examined the role of potential precursors in the self-handicapping process. A total of 626 undergradua...
