  1. Sadism (killing, torturing or mutilating the enemy), the fourth primitive militarism variable, was most strongly related to sexual repression, narcissism, and technological development (58-60).Eckhardt, William - Primitive militarism, 1975 - 4 Variables

    The reasons "primitive" peoples engaged in warfare are discussed. In order to resolve any inconsistencies in previous studies of warfare, this article looks closely at Textor's (1967) warfare variables and their correlations with other variables included in Textor's (1967) anthropological summary.

  2. Findings: A factor analysis of key dimensions to describe a given culture yielded 12 factors. Factor 7, "aggressive achievement behavior", loaded highly and positively on composite narcissism index; extreme bellicosity; strong or moderate emphasis on military glory; extreme boastfulness; high total positive pressure toward developing self-reliant behavior in child; warfare prevalent; incidence of personal crime above median; full-time entrepreneurs (60)Stewart, Robert A. C. - Cultural dimensions: a factor analysis of textor's a cross-cultural summary, 1972 - 10 Variables

    This article uses factor analysis to identify the key variables underlying the many cross-cultural associations reported by Textor (1967). Twelve factors are identified.

  5. There is a relationship between premarital sex norms and sex anxiety in adulthood as measured by the Minturn, Grosse and Haider (1969) scale (387, 388)Broude, Gwen J. - Norms of premarital sexual behavior: a cross-cultural study, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This article examines correlates of premarital sexual norms cross-culturally. Several explainations of restrictiveness of premarital sex are reviewed, and results indicate that accessibility of caretakers in childhood, class stratification and cultural complexity are all related to premarital sexual norms.

  6. "Table VI shows that there is no relationship between bride theft and norms of premarital sexual behavior. A high valuatin of virginity then, cannot be considered as a causal factor of any general importance" (244)Ayres, Barbara - Bride theft and raiding for wives in cross-cultural perspective, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This article seeks to examine the distribution and frequency of bride-theft. Tylor's (1889) findings between various forms of marriage by capture and certain other social instituions are confirmed.

  8. "If norms of premarital sexual behavior are related to sex anxiety, they would be expected to correlate highly with a scale measuring degree of sex anxiety in childhood" (386)Broude, Gwen J. - Norms of premarital sexual behavior: a cross-cultural study, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This article examines correlates of premarital sexual norms cross-culturally. Several explainations of restrictiveness of premarital sex are reviewed, and results indicate that accessibility of caretakers in childhood, class stratification and cultural complexity are all related to premarital sexual norms.

  9. "There is a positive correlation between maternal sexual deprivation and male narcissism" (255)Slater, Philip E. - Maternal ambivalence and narcissism: a cross-cultural study, 1965 - 2 Variables

    This article explores narcissism and child-rearing. The author presents a theory that, if a society’s structural pattern weakens the marital bond, the mother will be ambivalent toward the son who consequently will become narcissistic. This process would reinforce itself as it is repeated by each generation.

  10. "Reincarnation is positively and significantly related to a settlement pattern of neighborhoods, nomadic bands, extended family compounds, and other small, but continuing units" (120)Swanson, Guy E. - The birth of the gods; the origin of primitive beliefs, 1960 - 5 Variables

    This book investigates the origins of supernatural and religious beliefs. The author tests associations between various types of beliefs (e.g. witchcraft, monotheism) and various societal characteristics (e.g. mobility, class stratification). Many hypotheses are supported. Theoretical discussion is included, and the author posits that “the belief in a particular kind of spirit springs from experiences with a type of persisting sovereign group whose area of jurisdiction corresponds to that attributed to the spirit” (175).
