Abstract: The present study investigates the manner in which young Japanese and Thai adults believe they should behave, as well as actually do behave, in their communicative encounters with same age cohorts, middle-aged adults, and older adults in their respective countries. Particular attention is paid to the role of conversational enjoyment and satisfaction in intra and intergenerational conversations. A three step staircase pattern was replicated for the two communication factors (respect-obligation; avoidance) examined in the two countries; as their interlocutors “age” increased, younger adults accordingly increased the level of communicative politeness whilst showing a decreased desire to converse with them. The same incremental pattern was observed for politeness and deference norms. Ratings of conversational enjoyment and satisfaction did not follow the linear staircase pattern, while communication avoidance consistently had a negative impact on conversational enjoyment and satisfaction. Cross culturally, the deference norm was a positive predictor of respectful communication to younger and middle-aged adults in Thailand, but it had implications to respectful communication to middle-aged and older adults in Japan.

Abstract: This study tests a cognitive model of conflict avoidance strategies in the US and Chinese cultures. Participants were 325 US American and 318 Chinese college students. Results supported the proposed model. In both cultures, high concerns for competitive goals predicted the uses of people-avoiding strategies, whereas high concerns for cooperative goals predicted the uses of issue-avoiding strategies. Interaction effects between culture and concerns for goals on the likelihoods of different avoidance strategies were also found.

Abstract: This study tests a theoretical model for risk information avoidance that empirically examines variables associated with risk information avoidance intentions, and contrasts these findings with a similar theoretical model applied to variables associated with risk information seeking intentions. The analysis is based on a survey of Texans (N=827) that focused on risk information seeking and avoidance in the context of manmade earthquakes associated with oil and gas production in the state of Texas. Key findings show that risk information avoidance intentions were singularly and strongly associated with avoidance norms, while risk information seeking intentions were associated with a wide range of variables, such as attitudes, perceived behavioral control and seeking norms. This suggests that while risk information seeking is guided by both individually held as well as socially signaled constructs, risk information avoidance is especially guided by socially signaled constructs. We discuss these findings and suggest avenues for future research efforts.

An Eye-Tracking Study Investigating Selective Exposure and Avoidance of Political Advertising" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AEJMC, Sheraton Centre Toronto, Toronto, Canada, Aug 07, 2019 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-11-21 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1555197_index.html>

Abstract: This study investigates selective exposure and avoidance of political advertising using eye-tracking methodology. We exposed participants to political ads by liberal and conservative parties placed next to neutral political ads and tracked eye-movements unobtrusively. Findings showed that individuals paid more visual attention to political ads that were consistent with their partisan ideology, while they tended to avoid political ads that were inconsistent with their partisan ideology, which provides evidence for selective avoidance processes.

Abstract: Pattern-avoiding of self-avoiding walks
Shanzhen Gao, Shaun Sullivan, Heinrich Niederhausen

A self-avoiding walk (SAW) is a sequence of moves on a lattice which does not visit the same point more than once. It was given as one of the two classical combinatorial problems in the Encylopaedia Britannica. A SAW is interesting for simulations because its properties cannot be calculated analytically. Calculating the number of self-avoiding walks in any given lattice is a common computational problem. We will present some interesting problems on pattern-avoiding of self-avoiding walks and show you how to solve a few of them.
