  1. Societies in which there is a large sex difference in the degree to which certain traits (obedience, industry, and responsibility) are emphasized in childhood will be positively associated with the occurrence of initiation ceremonies (139).Barry III, Herbert - Early childhood precursors of adolescent initiation ceremonies, 1980 - 2 Variables

    This study presents a psychological theory for adolescent initiation ceremonies. Findings support the hypothesis that initiation is a mechanism for maintaining continuity between the stages of childhood and adulthood, when the body is physiologically in discontinuity.

  2. Societies in which the principal nonparental caretaker is an adult nonrelative and is predominantly the same sex as the child will be positvely associated with the occurrence of initiation ceremonies (138-139).Barry III, Herbert - Early childhood precursors of adolescent initiation ceremonies, 1980 - 3 Variables

    This study presents a psychological theory for adolescent initiation ceremonies. Findings support the hypothesis that initiation is a mechanism for maintaining continuity between the stages of childhood and adulthood, when the body is physiologically in discontinuity.

  3. "[T]he relative importance of boys' [puberty] rites tended to go more often with low drunkenness while girls' rites usually went with high drunkenness" (60)Davis, William N. - A cross-cultural study of drunkenness, 1964 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the influence of the "child-adult" conflict on the frequency of drunkenness in a culture. In particular, the author examines the socio-psychological factors that can induce a child-adult conflict, claiming that this conflict may be more common when mothers are the primary dispensers of rewards.

  4. There will be an association between harsh male initiation ceremonies and training for obedience in late childhood, prior to adolescenceSchlegel, Alice - Pain, fear, and circumcision in boys' adolescent initiation ceremonies, 2017 - 2 Variables

    Schlegel and Barry explore the conditions under which adolescent boys' initiation ceremonies involve rituals that frighten or cause pain to the initiates. The authors look for cross-cultural differences and similarities in cultural features associated with harsh rituals, in particular, genital operations.

  5. Frequent violent crimes by individuals are associated with the following five formative experiences: (1) The mother is not the principal caretaker during infancy; (2) The mother is the principal caretaker during early childhood; (3) Obedience by boys is weakly required during middle childhood; (4) Corporal punishment of boys is frequent during late childhood; (5) Premarital sexual intercourse by females is prohibited (71-72)Barry III, Herbert - Corporal punishment and other formative experiences associated with violent ..., 2007 - 6 Variables

    The focus of this article is the frequency of violent crimes. Five fomative experiences that are correlated with frequent violent crime by individuals are presented. This study uses the same sample as Ember and Ember (1992).

  6. "The presence of the [male initiation] rites was strongly related to low drunkenness while their absence tended to go with high drunkenness" (57)Davis, William N. - A cross-cultural study of drunkenness, 1964 - 2 Variables

In particular, the author examines the socio-psychological factors that can induce a child-adult conflict, claiming that this conflict may be more common when mothers are the primary dispensers of rewards.

  8. In societies with ceremonies for both sexes, boys' ceremonies are positively associated with painful procedures, ceremonies resulting in familial independence, and ceremonies focusing on fertility/sexuality.Schlegel, Alice - Adolescent initiation ceremonies: a cross-cultural code, 1979 - 4 Variables

    This article presents codes for adolescent initiation ceremonies in the standard cross-cultural sample. Commonly held assumptions about initiation ceremonies were not supported. Article focuses on differences between male and female ceremonies. Statistically significant correlations between the codes are indicated.

  9. In societies with ceremonies for one sex, girls' ceremonies (as opposed to boys) will be negatively associated with initiation prior to genital maturation, undergoing genital operation or experienceing same-sex bonding.Schlegel, Alice - Adolescent initiation ceremonies: a cross-cultural code, 1979 - 4 Variables

    This article presents codes for adolescent initiation ceremonies in the standard cross-cultural sample. Commonly held assumptions about initiation ceremonies were not supported.

  10. Enculturative activities that increase obedience will be more common in network societies (390).Peregrine, Peter N. - Political strategy and cross-cultural variation in games, 2008 - 3 Variables

    This study tests the hypotheses that games of strategy will be more prevalent in societies where political power is based on a "network strategy" and that network societies place more value on the enculturation of obedience in children. Both hypotheses are supported.
