  1. Sara Staats, Tara Anderson, Heidi Wallace & Debby Miller (2010). Perceived Best Ages for Cats, Dogs, and Humans: Comparisons Across Species, Human Age, and Human Gender. Society and Animals 18 (3):273-290.
    In addition to chronological age, humans perceive themselves and others as possessing several different functional ages. We extended the boundaries of research on perceived age concepts to cats and dogs, asking people to report on the best physical, mental, emotional, and social ages for cats and dogs. We found that emotional age was the oldest of the best ages and that physical best age was the youngest perceived best age for humans, cats, and dogs. Subjective age concepts extend across species (...)

    Some students do not cheat. Students high in measures of bravery, honesty, and empathy, our defining characteristics of heroism, report less past cheating than other students. These student heroes also reported that they would feel more guilt if they cheated and also reported less intent to cheat in the future than nonheroes. We find general consensus between students and professors as to reasons for the nonreporting of cheating, suggesting a general impression of insufficient evidence, lack of courage, and denial.

  4. Sara Staats, Heidi Wallace & Tara Anderson (2008). Reasons for Companion Animal Guardianship (Pet Ownership) From Two Populations. Society and Animals 16 (3):279-291.
    The purpose of this study is to extend and replicate previously published results from a random probability sample of university faculty. The sample assessed reasons given for companion-animal guardianship and for belief in the beneficial health effects of owning pets. In this replication and extension design, these two non-random samples responded to the same questionnaire items as those addressed to university faculty. Results indicated that avoidance of loneliness was the most frequent reason for owning pets among both students and middle-aged (...)
