  1. "Objects of displaced aggression are chosen farther and farther out on the generalization continuum as a function of the amount of aggression anxiety" (352)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  2. "Punishment for aggression increases the intensity of aggression in situations which are distinctly dissimilar from those in which the punishment occurs" (357)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  3. "The Hero should triumph less often in folk tales of societies in which the child training practices include severe punishment for aggression" (359)Wright, G. O. - Projection and displacement: a cross-cultural study of folktale aggression, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines aggression in folktales in relation to child socialization variables. The author suggests that punishment for aggression and aggression anxiety are related to how aggression is portrayed in folktales. Hypotheses are supported.

  4. Social drinking will correlate positively with the fantasy themes of sex, aggression, and change of state.McClelland, David C. - A cross-cultural study of folk-tale content and drinking, 1972 - 4 Variables

    This book chapter tests new and pre-existing theories (Horton, Field, Bacon et al.) for the cause of variation in drinking across cultures. Folktale content is used to test psychological variables more directly than has been done previously. Folktale content is analyzed programmatically with an acknowledged error level of up to one-third. Results lend support to Field's 1962 theory that loose social organization facilitates drinking.

  5. There will be a significant effect of vertical transmission through common descent on folktale distribution. (2)Da Silva, Sara Graça - Comparative phylogenetic analyses uncover the ancient roots of Indo-European..., 2016 - 3 Variables

    The authors compare language phylogenies and spatial distributions with folktale frequencies of Indo-European peoples in order to reconstruct their cultural transmission. A stronger association is found between folktale frequency and language phylogeny than has been proposed in earlier literature studies, indicating that vertical transmission is more influential on folktale distribution than horizontal transmission through spatial proximity. Finally, the frequencies of certain folktales appear to trace the ancestral divergences of Indo-European languages to a much deeper level than previously though, suggesting that folktales are representative of broader features of culture, rather than recent literary inventions.

  6. "If the strategic mode of competition bears a relationship to obedience training there should be an emphasis on obedience themes in the tales themselves" (194)Roberts, John M. - Strategy in games and folk tales, 1963 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates the strategic mode of competition in both games of strategy and folk talkes. Various significant relationships between games of strategy, folktales, social complexity, and child rearing variables are observed.

  7. "Of . . . child rearing practices in infancy references to odors [in folktales] correlates negatively with absence of pain inflicted by the nurturant agent" (4)Hines, Dwight - Possible rhinencephalic influences on human maternal behavior: a cross-cult..., 1974 - 2 Variables

    Authors study the correlation between maternal behavior and reference to odors in folktales. They find several significant relationships between odor references in folk tales, maternal behavior, and various aspects of infant and child socialization.

  8. Environmental unpredictability will be positively associated with capricious aggression in folktales (475)Cohen, Alex - A cross-cultural study of the effects of environmental unpredictability on a..., 1990 - 2 Variables

    Using a psychoanalytic-materialist approach, the author examines the possible effects of environmental unpredictability on the prevalence of unprovoked aggression by characters in folktales.

    Using a psychoanalytic-materialist approach, the author examines the possible effects of environmental unpredictability on the prevalence of unprovoked aggression by characters in folktales.
