  1. "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.

  2. "Agents of projected aggression [in folktales] are chosen farther and farther out on the generalization continuum as a function of the amount of aggression anxiety" (355)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 should be a positive correlation between the total number of suicides committed in the context of thwarting disorientation and the number of thwarting disorientation situations scored present for each society" (354)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.

  6. "The strategic mode of competition tends to be modeled in the folk tales of tribes which are politically complex" (193)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. 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.

  8. "There should be a positive correlation between the total number of suicides recorded and the number of thwarting disorientation situations scored present for each society" (354)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.

  9. "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.

  10. "Societies possessing games of strategy tend to have folk tales in which the outcome is determined or partly determined by strategy" (193)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.
