Abstract

The main aim of this study was to investigate the model of structural relations between neuroticism, academic stress and health behaviors among Iranian and Swedish students.199 students (100 Iranian and 99 Swedish) completed the Big Five Inventory-SV (BFI-SV, Rammstedt & John, 2007), the Academic Stress Questionnaire (ASQ, Zajacova, Lynch & Espenshade, 2005) and the Health Behavior Inventory (HBI, Broman, 1998). Relations between latent and observed variables in the conceptual Model were examined using structural equation modeling. The results of structural equation modeling showed that the global model had an acceptable fit to the data. In the global model, neuroticism and academic stress showed a significant positive relationship and the results of the global model indicated a significant negative relationship between neuroticism and academic stress with health behaviors. The results of the culture specificity of structural relations showed that structural relations were equivalent for the cultural groups. In sum, these findings through emphasizing the importance of the integration of trait and cultural psychology perspectives, retains heuristic value in designing studies, formulating hypotheses, and making theoretical refinements in the study of the structural relations between neuroticism, academic stress and health behaviors across cultures.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to provide a structure- oriented cross-cultural comparison of the within-group relationships between the negative life events, academic stress and subjective well-being among the Iranian and Swedish undergraduate students. On a sample consisting of 205 students (100 Iranian, 105 Swedish) the negative Event Scale, Academic Stress Questionnaire, Positive and Negative Affect Schedule and Satisfaction with Life Scale were administrated. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to assess the relationships between the multiple factors in both groups. Results of the multiple regression analysis showed that there was no significant difference between the Iranian and Swedish students in terms of the structure –oriented relations of the negative life events, academic stress and subjective wellbeing. However, the results of within-group comparisons showed that among the Iranian students, in comparison to the Swedish students, the negative life events had a high ability in predicting the academic stress and the emotional and cognitive components and that the academic stress had a high ability in predicting the subjective wellbeing. Results of the present study put an emphasis on the similarity of applied features of negative life events and academic stress among the Iranian and Swedish students in predicting the subjective wellbeing.

Abstract

The aim of this study is investigating the simple relationship of subjective well-being, personality and work-family conflict, and examining the mediation role of subjective well-being in relationship of these two variables through structural equation modeling. The statistical populations were workers of an Isfahanian industrial company which 217 workers were selected randomly among them. Instruments were work-family conflict questionnaire, vitality scale, life orientation test and NEO-FFI.  Results showed that relation of work-family conflict, agreeableness, conscientiousness, optimism and vitality are significant. Structural equation model also was significant and the mediation role of optimism and vitality in relation of agreeableness and conscientiousness with work-family conflict was confirmed. In fact these personality characteristics increase the level of optimism and vitality, and finally improve the psychological supply through influencing individuals' coping strategies and resource accessing. It can lead to better managing of work and family responsibilities and decreasing the conflict between these two areas.

Abstract

The aim of the present study, which was a non-experimental, cross-sectional, correlational study, was to investigate the pattern of correlation among five variables of relationaship satisfaction, commitment level, quality of alternative relations, investment size, and length of relationship, and depressive symptoms in married men and women in the city of Tehran, and to calculate the amount of variance of deprssive symptoms which is accounted for by each of these variables. The questionnaires which were used in the study were (1) the demographic information questionnaire, (2) Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), (3) Couples Satisfaction Index (CSI), and (4) Investment Model Scale (IMS), which were distributed among 264 clerical employees in the Ministry of Education. The results of 252 questionnaires were reliable and could be used in data analysis. The results showed negative and significant correlation between relationship satisfaction and depressive symptoms, and the amount of this correlation coeffeicient was higher among men. The results of regression ananlysis showed that the five predictor variables account for 35/6% of depressive symptoms variance among women, and 94/2% of depressive symptoms variance among men. In women’s regression model, the only variable which had a statistically significant role in accounting depressive symptoms variance was commitment level, while in men’s regression model, all predictor variables had a statistically significant role in accounting depressive symptoms variance.

Abstract

This research was aimed to compare urban and rural children’s perceptions of Rorschach inkblots. The research population consisted of 7-10 year-old male students in the City of Zanjan and its surrounding villages. The sample included 80 students selected through random quota cluster sampling. The research was a causal-comparative study and Rorschach inkblot cards were used as the research tools. Student‘s t-test analysis results showed that the mean number of responses received from urban children was significantly greater than the mean responses received from rural children. Regarding, Mp, ma, FT, TF, VF and FY indexes, significant differences were found between urban and rural children. No difference was observed regarding the other indexes. The results concluded that urban children are significantly different from rural children in terms of their perceptions of Rorschach inkblots. The only significant differences between urban and rural children were found in the number of responses and determinant indexes. No significant difference was found between urban and rural children regarding content, common responses, developmental quality, and percept location indexes.
