最近的研究发现某些具身效应不能被重复, 这给心理学界带来了空前的可重复性危机。基于对具身认知“概念化”、“替代”和“构成”主题的分析, 通过区分具身效应的生成层次、强弱条件、建构方向和任务特性四个方面, 以便在实验中更准确地“定位”具身效应。未来研究可以从具身效应层次的分离与综合, 强弱条件的界分, 调节或中介机制探讨以及实验范式革新等方面加以推进。

Recently, previously established embodiment effects (e.g. power pose effects) have partly failed to replicate, calling into question whether embodiment is in fact a true effect. Based on an analysis of the concepts of “conceptualization”, “alternative” and “construction” of embodiment cognition, this present article proposed a way out of the dilemma by specifying four characteristics of this effect: embodied generating level, strength degree, constructing direction and experimental task. Clarifying these four aspects could be helpful to accurately understand the embodiment effect and address the replication crisis. Future studies could conduct by differentiating and synthesizing the embodied generating levels, distinguishing different conditions for embodied strength, discovering the mediating or moderating role of embodied variables, and creating new specific experimental paradigms.
