  1. Murder in primitive societies will be related to the societal disciplinary practices (735)Lester, David - The relation between discipline experiences and the expression of aggression, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This paper investigates the relationship between discipline experiences in preindustrial societies and aggressive behavior at the societal level. No associations are found between discipline experiences and suicide, murder, aggression resulting from alcohol consumption, or aggression expressed in war-making.

  2. A test for association between the suicide rate and fear of death found no supportLester, David - The fear of death in primitive societies, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study tests for potential correlates of the fear of death in non-literate societies. Significant associations were found between the use of love-oriented techniques for punishment and a fear of death and a high need to achieve and a fear of death.

  5. The incidence of homicide will be associated with the need for achievement and the need for power (161).Lester, David - National motives and psychogenic death rates, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study investigates possible relationships between the need for achievement and power (as measured in folktales) with rates of suicide and homicide in preindustrial societies. Analysis suggests that homicide is not associated with either the need for achievement or power, but suicide is positively associated with the need for power.

Analysis suggests that homicide is not associated with either the need for achievement or power, but suicide is positively associated with the need for power.

  9. "Evidence was found . . . for an association between a high need to achieve and a high fear of death" (229)Lester, David - The fear of death in primitive societies, 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study tests for potential correlates of the fear of death in non-literate societies. Significant associations were found between the use of love-oriented techniques for punishment and a fear of death and a high need to achieve and a fear of death.

  10. High population density will be positively associated with pathological behavior in humans (i.e. homicide, suicide, drunken brawling, male insobriety, witchcraft attribution, and divorce) (743).Levinson, David - Population density in cross-cultural perspective, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This article investigates how population density affects social behavior, particularly whether it is a cause of stress in humans that manifests in pathological behavior or mistreatment of children. Analysis indicates that population density is not a cause of these behaviors, and with some variables (such as with divorce and sexual anxiety), there is a negative association with population density.
