・18th annual meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) (2017/01/19-21), San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Ito, G., & Hashimoto, Y. (2017). Why someone becomes a fan of a celebrity? : Celebrity worship, spirituality, and agency detection in Japan. (accepted)

Abstract: Why someone becomes a fan of a celebrity? We conducted relatively large sample study (N = 367) using Japanese sample in cooperation with an active celebrity (idol). First, although celebrity worship, especially idol worship, becomes a social phenomenon in Japan, there has been little psychological research about it. Our data showed that Japanese celebrity worship can be well explained by six factors, and we’ll discuss this structure in comparison with past Western findings (e.g., McCutcheon et al., 2002). Second, although previous study suggested negative correlation between celebrity worship and religiosity (Maltby, 2004; 2015), they didn’t make distinction between actual religious belief and psychological underpinnings of religiosity (i.e., agency detection, or the tendency to interpret events as the consequence of intentional and purpose-driven agents). Our data showed that someone who tends to detect agent in an actually random pattern is likely to be a celebrity worshipper, and the endorsement of spiritual value (spirituality) mediate this relationship.

 

・31st International Congress of Psychology (ICP2016)(7/24-29)(Yokohama, Japan)

Ito, G., & Soma, T. (2016). Notice early warning signs of domestic violence by thinking abstractly (vs. concretely): an experience sampling study. (accepted)

Abstract:  Any action (e.g., boyfriend’s verbal abuse) can be construed abstractly (“Why” reasoning; e.g., imposing his desire) or concretely (“How” reasoning; e.g., using dirty words). By comparing abstract/concrete construal, most previous studies have investigated how to get close to others (empathy and prosocial behavior; Trope & Liberman, 2010). But little research has examined how to get distant to others, which we believe to be an important question in everyday life, especially in romantic relationship. When comparing abstract/concrete construal, which fosters someone to notice early warning signs of domestic violence by their partner? We conducted an experience sampling study for seven consecutive days and identified several relational vulnerability factors related to non-physical domestic violence. Using multilevel analysis, we got some tentative evidence that when people think abstractly, they can easily distance themselves from their partner’s non-physical violence.

 

・23rd Congress of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology (IACCP) (7/30-8/3) (Nagoya, Japan)

Ito, G., Hashimoto, Y., Nakagawa, T., & Takano, Y. (2016). Psychological antecedents of political ideology in Japan. (accepted)

Abstract:  Although there are many researches about the psychological bases of political ideology in U.S., little research has explored the psychological antecedents of political ideology in Japan. Through three studies utilizing Japanese participants, we investigated whether moral foundation (Graham et al., 2009) and inhibitory control (assessed by Stop Signal Task and Simon Task) relates to political ideology in Japan. Though similar pattern emerged, compared with U.S. data (in which concerns about purity and disgust showed the strongest relation to ideology), Japanese data showed no relationship between purity concerns and ideology. Also, we found some tentative evidence that inhibitory control predicts political ideology through moral foundation, especially through harm foundation. Taken together, there results suggest that there are some universal psychological antecedents of political ideology, but at the same time we have to take care of some important cultural differences.
