  1. "Aggression resulting from alcohol consumption and aggression as expressed in war-making" will be "related to discipline practices in primitive societies" (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. There will be a "relationship between the incidence or type of suicidal behavior in a society and its disciplinary practices" (734)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.

  3. "The aggressive behaviors of nonliterate societies, as manifested in their suicide and homicide rates… will be inversely associated with love-oriented techniques of discipline" (466).Lester, David - Suicide, homicide, and the effects of socialization, 1967 - 3 Variables

    This study tests for an association between displays of aggression and socialization techniques in preindustrial societies. Analysis suggests there is no relationship between discipline techniques and homicidal or suicidal behavior.

  4. "Evidence was found for an association between use of love-oriented techniques of punishment 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.

  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.

  6. ". . . There is no evidence that mutilation behaviors in primitive societies are related to the incidence of suicide in those societies" (802)Lester, David - Suicide and mutilation behaviors in non-literate societies, 1971 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests for a relationship between practices of mutilation and self-torture and the incidence of suicidal behavior in preindustrial, nonliterate societies. Several hypotheses are tested but none supported.

  7. 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.

  8. "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.

  9. "In . . . non-literate societies . . . when some forms of aggression, outward or inward-directed, occur frequently so also do other forms" (63)Palmer, Stuart - Aggression in fifty-eight non-literate societies: an exploratory analysis, 1970 - 3 Variables

    Building on previous research concerning murder and suicide, this study investigates 18 forms of aggression and explores how they might be engendered by certain child-training practices. Results show a weak connection between most forms of aggression and child-training practices, but non-literate societies do show a positive correlation between murder and suicide. The author develops a theory positing that experience of social blockage will be related to outwardly-directed aggression, whereas social loss will be related to inwardly-directed aggression.

  10. "Reasoning based on the frustration-aggression hypothesis would lead one to expect a positive relationship between social anxiety scores and aggression index scores" (64)Palmer, Stuart - Aggression in fifty-eight non-literate societies: an exploratory analysis, 1970 - 2 Variables

    Building on previous research concerning murder and suicide, this study investigates 18 forms of aggression and explores how they might be engendered by certain child-training practices. Results show a weak connection between most forms of aggression and child-training practices, but non-literate societies do show a positive correlation between murder and suicide.
