Relationship Insecurities: Interpersonal Consequences and Possible Improvements
Chair/Speakers: Francesca Righetti, Francesca Righetti, Denise Marigold, Nadya Teneva, Ximena Arriaga
Abstract: An experience sampling study with 130 couples shows that, although low self-esteem individuals sacrifice goals and preferences for their relationship as much as high self-esteem individuals, they tend to regret those sacrifices more with negative consequences for their psychological well-being.

Emotions & Politics: The Inextricable Link
Chair/Speakers: Brett Ford, Allison Troy, Eran Halperin, Matthew Feinberg, Brett Ford
Abstract: Do voters accurately predict their emotional responses to elections? In a sample of registered voters in a swing state, there were high rates of both affective polarization and affective forecasting accuracy. Furthermore, individuals with strong emotional ties to one candidate were more accurate while individuals with a strong dislike of both candidates were less accurate forecasters.

Is the World Shrinking? Advancing the Psychological Study of Globalization
Chair/Speakers: Sarah Huff, Sarah Huff, Bobby Cheon, Ana Urbiola, Ian Hawkins
Abstract: Across two studies we find that bicultural students with higher bicultural identity integration (BII) are more likely to approach dominant group members. In the second study, we test whether this relationship is moderated by dominant group attitudes, and find that BII buffers against negative attitudes. Implications for intercultural relationships will be discussed.

Perspective Tanking: The Perils of Putting Yourself in Others' Shoes
Chair/Speakers: Rhia Catapano, Zakary Tormala, Rhia Catapano, Nicholas Epley, Jacquie Vorauer, Adam Galinsky
Abstract: We find that when people take the perspective of someone who endorses a counterattitudinal view, they become less receptive to that view and show reduced attitude change following a counterattitudinal argument generation task. This effect is driven by value incongruence and, thus, is attenuated when people instead take the perspective of someone who disagrees yet has similar values.

Racial/Ethnic Diversification in the U.S.: Emerging Social Psychological Issues
Chair/Speakers: James Rae, Allison Skinner, Danielle Young, Allison Skinner, Linda Zou, James Rae
Abstract: Are multiracial and racially ambiguous individuals categorized based on minority group status (hypodescent), or generally excluded from the perceiver’s ingroup (ingroup over-exclusion effect; IOE)? A systematic review suggests that hypodescent is not supported beyond the predictions of the IOE. Discussion will include implications for the increasingly racially diverse USA.

Using Big Language Data for Measurement and Feedback
Chair/Speakers: Anneke Buffone, Anneke Buffone, Sharath Chandra Guntuku, Johannes Eichstaedt, Lyle Ungar
Abstract: We explored linguistic patterns from Facebook language in 3000 participants to characterize individuals’ stress levels overall and by age/gender. We created a language-based predictive model for stress and applied it to U.S. counties using geotagged tweets. Last, we present our prototype for a social media application which provides personalized health feedback to survey respondents.

New Insights into Maximizing, Rationality, and Decision Making
Chair/Speakers: Nathan Cheek, Rebecca Shiner, Wändi Bruine de Bruin, Rebecca Shiner, Nathan Cheek, Barry Schwartz
Abstract: Maximizing involves seeking the best decision option. It is more elaborate and regret-inducing than choosing an option that is "good enough." In a large national sample, we found that older (vs. younger) adults maximized less, which was associated with their better experienced well-being. We discuss findings in light of the psychology of aging and decision making.

Advancing Social Cognitive Theories Through Mouse-Tracking
Chair/Speakers: Paul Stillman, Paul Stillman, Iris Schneider, Anne Krendl, Jeffrey Brooks
Abstract: We use mouse-tracking to probe how we resolve self-control conflicts. Counter to impulse inhibition – where we first experience an automatic impulse towards the temptation before controlled processes can override – we find trajectories to be overwhelmingly continuous (rather than abrupt), suggesting dynamic evolution of these decisions. We further find that trajectories predict real decisions.
