What impacts does experiencing discrimination have on cognitive health? 253 young adults from Singapore and 3577 midlife adults from the US provided lifetime and daily measures to answer this question.

Karina Villalba1, Maria JOse Del Pino Espejo2, Elizabeth Robbins1, Eladia Illescas Estevez3

1University of Central Florida, United States of America; 2Universidad Pablo Olivade; 3Centro de Estudios Andaluces

Determine whether difficulties with emotion regulation mediated the relationship between childhood maltreatment and alcohol use by gender in students in Andalucía, Spain. Emotion regulation dimensions significantly mediated this relationship in males and females. This suggests that males and females who reported childhood neglect used emotion regulation strategies differently.



Emotional Reactivity in Dark Triad: A Daily Diary Approach

Ming Han Lim, Nadyanna M. Majeed, Andree Hartanto

Singapore Management University, Singapore

We examine the relationship between the Dark Triad and affective reactivity to daily stressors using a daily diary design.

Kyohei Nishi

Courtney Diana Cameron, Donna Dumitrescu, Natasha Gallant

The University of Regina, Canada

This study aimed to investigate and conduct an in-depth analysis of aging misconceptions and ageist notions experienced by adults across their lifespans. We found that ageism exists across the adult lifespan, but that ageism unfolds differently depending on the age of the person perpetrating ageism and the one experiencing ageism.



Intellectual Humility And Daily Affective Reactions To Uplifts And Stressors

K T A Sandeeshwara Kasturiratna, Verity Y Q Lua, Nadyanna M Majeed, Andree Hartanto

Does higher intellectual humility (IH) levels affect your emotional reactions to daily uplifts and stressors? To answer this, 253 young adults in Singapore completed a 7-day daily diary. Multilevel modelling revealed that IH increased positive affect and decreased negative affect during uplift exposure, but had no effect during stressor exposure.
