    Decision Behavior in Emotional Tradeoff Difficulties
    Li Xiaoming, Fu Xiaolan
    2004, 12 (6):  801-801~808. 
    Abstract ( 907 )   PDF (708KB) ( 3312 )  
    Tradeoff is an important characteristic of decision behavior. Emotional tradeoff difficulties refer that decision makers usually feel it difficult to tradeoff alternatives because of negative emotions experienced when they have to tradeoff valued goals. Goals of effort minimization, negative emotions minimization and accuracy maximization influence decision making behavior altogether, and make it different from lower emotional decision behavior.

    Abstract ( 3009 )   PDF (715KB) ( 2404 )  
    Ecological rationality put a great emphasis on the influences of environment on human beings and the functions of human gained from the interaction with their surroundings. There are lots of evidences indicate that emotion has ecological rationality from two aspects. First, emotion bears the information of environment because it was shaped by natural selection.

    Li Xiaohua,Zhang Qin
    2004, 12 (6):  824-824~832. 
    Abstract ( 2403 )   PDF (727KB) ( 2289 )  
    During the past two decades, the research of affective priming has been an important area in the region of western psychology. Much of research on attitude activation has employed various experimental tasks and methods, and the result of the intensive research implies that attitudes can be activated automatically. So far three kinds of models have been proposed: a spreading of activation account, a Stroop-like response conflict, an Affective-Matching mechanism. There is still debate over the results of different studies. Future researchers should focus their attention on the exploring of the interior mechanism of automatically evaluated activation, and so considerable progress can be expected in the studies of unconscious cognition on the affective priming.

    Mo Shuliang,Zhao Yingchun,Su Yanjie
    2004, 12 (6):  860-860~867. 
    Abstract ( 3122 )   PDF (716KB) ( 2745 )  
    The comparative research on non-human primates’ theory of mind, which contributes a lot to our understanding of the origin and essentials of theory of mind, plays an important role in the area of comparative cognition. This review mainly concerns the related field observation and experimental research, including non-human primates’ understanding of visual perception, intention and goal, desire and belief. Controversy exists in experimental design, results and interpretation for the results, for example, the validity of measuring non-human primates’ theory of mind, the difference between intra- and inter- species understanding of non-human primates, the mechanism behind the non-human primates’ understanding of intention. These controversial results and argument may be due to specific theoretical hypotheses, tasks and designs. Hence, problems such as redefining the conception of non-human primates’ theory of mind, designing appropriate experiments and combining the influence of cultural difference and social ecology were to be solved.

Researchers interested in collective efficacy were getting to draw general conclusions, and they agreed that CE played a key role in causal structures because it affected behavior not only directly, but by its impacts on other determinants such as goals and aspirations, outcome expectations, affective proclivities, and perception of sociostructual impediments and opportunity structure. This paper performed an overview on the research of CE, in order to get the common results and evaluation of it.
