    THE CHINESE COLOR SYSTEM
    Wang Daheng Jing Qicheng Sun Xiuru Lin ZHiding Zhang Jiaying (Institute. of Psychology Chinese Academy of Sciences Beijing, 100012)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 225-233.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 261 )
    The paper gives an overview of the theoretical and practical and practical implications of constructing a color model to represent object color and to give colons quantitative descriptions. Some of the most commonly used color systems are described. To construct the Chinese Color System an analysis of these color systems and measurements of color samples were made. Experiments were conducted to establish uniform scales for the perception of brightness, hue and chroma of the Chinese eye. The results formed the basis for the model of Chinese Color System, and were used in constructing the Album of the Chinese Color System. The results of this research were approved by the Chinese Natural Science Foundation and Academy of Sciencesjoint review committee in 1993, and passed the National Technical Supervision Bureau review as national color standards. The completion and popularisation of the research results provided industrial departments with scientific methods for color control and color information transfer, thus producing positive economic and social benefits.

    A REVIEW ON THE CONTROVERSY OF PERIPHERALNEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL FUNCTION
    Chen Wenxi (Shanxi Mining College, Taiyuan , 030024)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 250-256.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 80 )
    Neurophysiological experiments since the 20s of this century have shown that the compression originally observed in psychological . experiments is also present in the pattern of peripheral neural activity. It is most usually measured in terms of the frequency of the train of the nervous impulses recorded at peripheral sensory neurons. Some investigators have found loguithmic neural function, while others have reported power function. This controversy of specific mathematical rule which best describes the compression has been discussed and unified in this paper by the application of the stimulus - effect model of the brain previously established by the author.

    THE FEATURES OF GROUP WORK FOR DIFFERENT TASKS
    Wang Lei Yao Zhen Chen Yi (Department of psychology, Peking University)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 264-270.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 84 )
    Fourteen groups of college students (in total of 68 subjects) were dichotically appointed with two different group tasks: discussing an open-ended (OE) question or a close-ended (CE) question. The group work was assessed in the procedure, pattern, and features: the time used for different working stages, the object that each speaking directs against, the continuity of group discussion, the method and intensity of reasoning, the group conflict and supporting, and expressing style. Results showed that CE needed more time to clarify the question and was more likely to cite examples to support the opinions. OE adopted inductive method whereas CE adopted deductive method. Both groups were more likely to talk to individual members than to the whole group, and more likely to express agreement nonverbally than orally. The results were also discussed referring to the design of videoconference system and computer surpported co-operative work.

    Shi Jiannong Xu Fan (Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing100012)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 271-277.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 485 )
    In the field of research on creativity, the relationship between children's creativity and intelligence is one of the most arguable problems. In order to explain the relationship between creativity and intelligence, we developed a system model of creativity previously. In this paper parts of the hypothesis of the model Were tested. The correlation coefficient between creative thinking and one's interest and motivation were detected. The results showed, (1) the performances of intellectually gifted children on geometric, numeric and practical tests of creativity were significantly higher than the normal intellectual children; (2) there existed significant correlation coefficient between gifted children's creative thinking and their interest and motivation, (r=27- 76, p<05-001); (3) there existed significant correlation between the normal children,s creative thinking and their interest and motivation, too, (r =24-71, p < 05- 001 ; (4) the performance of creative thinking of the subjects with high scores of interest and motivation was higher than the subjects with low scores of interest and motivation. These results supported the hypotheses of the system model of creativity.

    SIMILARITY BETWEEN ADOLESCENTS AND THEIR SAME-GENDER BEST FRIENDS
    Fang Xiaoyi (Institute of Developmental Psychology Psychology Normal University l00875)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 278-285.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 212 )
    Similarity between adolescents and their same-gender best friends were examined using data collected from 1040 6th, 8th, and 10th grade youth from several public schools in Beijing. Subjects were asked to nominate one best friend, and complete a questionnaire including 17 attributes. 427 same-gender best friend dyads were identified. The same-gender best friends were more similar than non-selected friends. They were more similar on behaviors such as skipping school, running away from home, smoking and drinking than on other activities, and the least similar on family socioeconomic status, dispositional compliance, school achievement and education aspiration. The effects of gender and grade of best friend dyads were significant on some attributes, the effects of reciprocity of same-gender best friend dyads were not significant on all attributes.

    AN INVESTIGATION ON THE BILINGUAL TIBETANS'ATTITUDETOWARD THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE AND CHINESE
    Wan Minggang Wang Jian (Northwest Normal University. Lanzhou, 730070)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 294-300.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 136 )
    Questionnaires, interviews and observations were used to investigate bilingual Tibetan adults, attitude toward their native language and Chinese, their attitude toward the selection of Tibetan or Chinese in different communicative contexts, and their attitude toward the transformation of one language code into another The result of the investigation showed that most of the bilingual people have a deep feeling for their native language, and a strong inclination to keep their own language. The factor of feeling plays an important part in the attitude of the bilingual people toward their native language, while in the attitude toward Chinese language their is something more rational or cognitive than emotional. They show a positive attitude toward learing Chinese in order to master it. but when it comes to the viewpoint of replacing Tibetan with Chinese, their attitude turns to be negative, Bilingual people mainly use their own language in the family and among their own people. lf one Tibetan speaks in Tibetan,while the other responds in Chinese or in Tibetan mingled with Chinese, it is not welcome.

    TEST THE CHANGE/SEGMENTATION MODEL(I)
    Huang Xiting Xu Guangguo(Institute & Department of Psychology, Southwest China Normal University, china, 630715)
    . 1997, 29 (03): 326-334.  
    Abstract   PDF (KB) ( 82 )
    The purpose of the present two experiments was to study the predictive validityof three cognitive models in time estimation:the storage-size model(SS),the processingtime mode(PT),the change/ segmentation model(CD),but the experiments wereprimarily designed to test CS model . With the methods of both reproduction andparameter estimation of time, subjects were asked to prospectively (immediately ordelaying) estimate the duration between two red-colored squares, which were alsofilled with 12 digits appearing alternatively, At the same time, subjects were asked toreport 2 digits after a probing digit, which enabled subjects to perceive (or remember)the flow of digits in the predesigned chunking mode. the segmentation levels wereanticipatedly produced by different chunking size(2or 4 digits ). In experiment 1,external change was manipulated:diffirent duration lasting within two types of chunks,different intervals intervening two digits of the two types of chunks, In Experiment 2,internal change was manipulated, while external change was controlled: same intervalsintervening two digits, same duration within any digit, but subjects were asked to perceive these digits in diffirent chunking modes. The results showed that the higher the segmentation level in immediate response setting the longer the subjective duration estimation, but the subjetive duration was not influenced by the predetermined segmentation level in delayable response setting. Examining the way the subjective experience was processed indicated that in immediate response setting, the predesigned chunking of the list of digits was preserved, but in delayable response setting, such chunking diminished. These findings were discussed in terms of three models. The conclusion was that time estimation was best explained by the CS model: although the subjective duration in delayable prospective estimation was not influenced by the predesigned segmentation level, it was also influenced by the degree to which memorial representations of processed events segment experience. That is, in immediate estimation, the segmentation levels were determined by the predesigned chunked digits, while in remote estimation, the segmentation levels were determined by the discrete digits.
