  1. The lived experiences of individuals with Tourette syndrome or tic disorders: A meta-synthesis of qualitative studies.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):609 (2015) PMID 25721405

    There is a growing body of qualitative literature describing the lived experiences of people with tic disorders (TDs). The aim of this paper was to conduct a systematic review of this literature, synthesizing the perspectives of individuals on their experiences. Meta-synthesis methodology was ut...
  2. There aren't plenty more fish in the sea: A causal network approach.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):564 (2015) PMID 25597224

    The current research investigated how lay representations of the causes of an environmental problem may underlie individuals' reasoning about the issue. Naïve participants completed an experiment that involved two main tasks. The causal diagram task required participants to depict the causal rel...
  3. Cross-cultural evidence of value structures and priorities in childhood.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):675 (2015) PMID 25581067

    We broaden the developmental focus of the theory of universals in basic human values (Schwartz, 1992, Advances in Experimental Social Psychology) by presenting supportive evidence on children's values from six countries: Germany, Italy, Poland, Bulgaria, the United States, and New Zealand. 3,088...
  4. The dark side of cognitive illusions: When an illusory belief interferes with the acquisition of evidence-based knowledge.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):597 (2015) PMID 25641547

    Cognitive illusions are often associated with mental health and well-being. However, they are not without risk. This research shows they can interfere with the acquisition of evidence-based knowledge. During the first phase of the experiment, one group of participants was induced to develop a st...
  5. Marines, medics, and machismo: Lack of fit with masculine occupational stereotypes discourages men's participation.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):635 (2015) PMID 25469571

    Women have made substantial inroads into some traditionally masculine occupations (e.g., accounting, journalism) but not into others (e.g., military, surgery). Evidence suggests the latter group of occupations is characterized by hyper-masculine 'macho' stereotypes that are especially disadvanta...
  6. Limits on efficient human mindreading: Convergence across Chinese adults and Semai children.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):724 (2015) PMID 25631400

    We tested Apperly and Butterfill's (2009, Psychological Review, 116, 753) theory that humans have two mindreading systems whereby the efficient-system guiding anticipatory glances displays signature limits that do not apply to the flexible system guiding verbal predictions. Experiments 1 and 2 t...
  7. Cognitive processing of currency: Euros and dollars.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):583 (2015) PMID 25641211

    In the current study, we evaluated whether the processing of currency was determined by familiarity of people with banknotes. In Experiment 1, participants who used the Euro currency named sequences of Euro banknotes and Dollar banknotes blocked by category or mixed with exemplars of other categ...
  8. Testing the bi-dimensional effects of attitudes on behavioural intentions and subsequent behaviour.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):656 (2015) PMID 25440892

    Attitudes are typically treated as unidimensional predictors of both behavioural intentions and subsequent behaviour. On the basis of previous research showing that attitudes comprise two independent, positive and negative dimensions, we hypothesized that attitudes would be bi-dimensional predic...
  9. Virtues in action - the new look of character traits.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):700 (2015) PMID 25641361

    The present study aimed to take fresh look at the nature and psychological meaning of consistency in character traits and virtuous behaviour as manifested in everyday life. To this end, a 10-day experience-sampling study was conducted. Using smartphone technology, a sample of 83 working mothers ...
  10. Differences in multiple-target visual search performance between non-professional and professional searchers due to decision-making criteria.

    British Journal of Psychology 106(4):551 (2015) PMID 25266971

    Professional visual searches, such as those conducted by airport security personnel, often demand highly accurate performance. As many factors can hinder accuracy, it is critical to understand the potential influences. Here, we examined how explicit decision-making criteria might affect multiple...
