  1. Socialization of children involving violence will be positively associated with frequent wifebeating (194)Levinson, David - Physical punishment of children and wifebeating in cross-cultural perspective, 1981 - 2 Variables

    The author tests Straus' model of wifebeating that suggests that socialization through violence (by encouraging aggression, corporal punishment and by observing violence) increases the likelihood of wifebeating. The relationship between socialization of children using violent techniques and wifebeating is tested using the Probability Sample Files.

  2. Polygynous societies, where cowives and their children live in separate quarters, will be positively associated with male segregation at puberty when the factor of the length of a postpartum sexual taboo is controlled (207)Kitahara, Michio - Polygyny: insufficient father-son contact and son's masculine identity, 1976 - 4 Variables

    The purpose of this article is to examine circumcision and segregation of males at puberty. It is suggested that when the son has insufficient contact with his father due to the separation caused by polygynous relationships, the son may develop a feminine personality. The significance of this is compared with the significance of a close mother-son relationship.

  3. "Relative importance of love-oriented techniques of punishment by parents will be positively correlated with the importance of patient responsibility in the explanation of illness" (244)Whiting, John W.M. - Child training and personality: a cross-cultural study, 1953 - 2 Variables

    The authors put forward a theoretical model called "personality integration of culture." At the heart of the model is the idea that psychological processes may help explain why certain aspects of culture are related to other aspects. To test this model they focus on theories and therapies regarding illness and they use psychoanalytic ideas on positive and negative fixation to suggest how differences in child-rearing customs may account for different ideas about the causes of illness. The strongest results relate to socialization anxiety in a particular area of socialization (e.g., oral, dependency, and aggression) amd respective causes of illness. Results regarding negative fixation are generally supported, whereas positive fixation is not.

  4. Female extramarital promiscuity will be positively associated with endogamous marriage systems (157).Greene, Penelope J. - Promiscuity, paternity, and culture, 1978 - 2 Variables

    This study examines several aspects of human society that are associated with underlying patterns of genetic relationships. Results suggest that paternity certainty (measured by female extramarital promiscuity) is related to kinship terminology systems and marriage systems.

  5. In societies with high rates of socialization anxiety, male initiation rites at puberty will be prevalent (373, 308).Textor, Robert B. - A Cross-Cultural Summary: Male Initiation Rites, 1967 - 2 Variables

    Textor summarizes cross-cultural male initiation rites findings pertaining to cultural, environmental, psychological, and social phenomena.

  6. Languages with larger speaker populations, greater geographical coverage, and greater contact with other languages (i.e. exoteric rather than esoteric languages) will have overall simpler morphological systems (1, 3, 6).Lupyan, Gary - Language structure is partly determined by social structure, 2010 - 2 Variables

    This article explores the relationship between language structure and social environment, positing that linguistic factors such as morphological complexity are associated with demographic/socio-historical factors such as number of speakers, geographic spread, and degree of language contact. Data support such an association. The authors further propose a Linguistic Niche Hypothesis suggesting that “the level of morphological specialization is a product of languages adapting to the learning constraints and the unique communicative needs of the speaker population” (7).

  7. High socialization pressure and group cohesion in value orientation will be positively and independently associated with cultural complexity (186, 194).Zern, David - The impact of values on development in a cross-cultural sample, 1982 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates relationships between socialization practices, group values, and cultural complexity. Analysis suggests that child-rearing variables and group cohesion in value orientation contribute significantly and independently to cultural complexity.

  8. "[From matched pairs of societies] . . . that member . . . with stronger compliance training and food production generally was characterized by high infant indulgence" (31-32)Barry III, Herbert - Cross-cultural research with matched pairs of societies, 1969 - 2 Variables

    This study examines 12 matched pairs of closely related societies and suggests that there is a relationship between socialization pressure toward compliance (rather than assertion) and emphasis on food production. Results also indicate that stronger compliance training is associated with higher indulgence in infancy and lower frequency of drunkenness in adulthood.

  9. Paternity certainty will be higher in societies that use Eskimo-type kinship terminology systems and lower in societies that use Iroquois-type systems (155).Greene, Penelope J. - Promiscuity, paternity, and culture, 1978 - 2 Variables

    This study examines several aspects of human society that are associated with underlying patterns of genetic relationships. Results suggest that paternity certainty (measured by female extramarital promiscuity) is related to kinship terminology systems and marriage systems.

  10. Findings: A factor analysis of permissiveness yielded three unrelated factors. Factor 3 in the permissiveness factor analysis, "independence-anality" factor, loaded heavily and positively on anal socialization anxiety and age at independence socialization. This factor loads heavily and negatively on initial anal indulgence (152)Prothro, E. Terry - Patterns of permissiveness among preliterate peoples, 1960 - 4 Variables

    This study uses empirical analysis to parse out different dimensions of permissiveness in child-rearing. Oral-sexuality, independence-anality, and aggression are the dimensions identified.
