  2. Cyber-Personality and Liking Expression: A Study From WeChat Users in China.Haojian Li & X. T. Wang - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    Clicking the like button following a post on social media has become a common means of expressing and gathering social support online. Little is known about how liking expression is linked and regulated by personality traits and communication motives. Following a preliminary survey about the usage of the like function on WeChat, a Chinese social media platform, we conducted an online study to map the Big-Five personality traits and five communication motives to the frequency of liking expression. The results showed (...)

    How is Maternal Survival Related to Reproductive Success?X. T. Wang & Ralph Hertwig - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (2):236-237.
    Campbell's target article is a stimulating attempt to extend our understanding of sex differences in risk-taking behaviors. However, Campbell does not succeed in demonstrating that her account adds explanatory power to those (e.g., Daly & Wilson 1994) previously proposed. In particular, little effort was made to explore the causal links between survival (staying alive) and reproduction.

    From Simon 's Scissors for Rationality to Abc's Adaptive Toolbox.X. T. Wang - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):765-766.
    The smartness of simple heuristics depends upon their fit to the structure of task environments. Being fast and frugal becomes psychologically demanding when a decision goal is bounded by the risk distribution in a task environment. The lack of clear goals and prioritized cues in a decision problem may lead to the use of simple but irrational heuristics. Future research should focus more on how people use and integrate simple heuristics in the face of goal conflict under risk.

    Beyond “Pardonable Errors by Subjects and Unpardonable Ones by Psychologists”.X. T. Wang - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (5):699-700.
    Violations and biases relative to normative principles of rationality tend to occur when the structure of task environments is novel or the decision goals are in conflict. The two blades of bounded rationality, the structure of task environments and the computational capacities of the actor, can sharpen the conceptual distinctions between the sources of the normative and descriptive gap.

    Reference Point-Dependent Tradeoffs in Intertemporal Decision Making.X. T. Wang & Jeffrey S. Simons - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (5):663-664.
    We agree with Ainslie's general approach to intertemporal choices and self-control. However, we argue that a concept of “will” is superfluous in explaining tradeoffs between SS (smaller and sooner) and LL (larger and later) rewards in a framework of temporal goal setting and goal aggregation. We provide an alternative framework of reference point-dependent tradeoffs between SS and LL options.

    Conservation Combats Exploitation: Choices Within an Evolutionary Framework.X. T. Wang, Shu Li & Li-Lin Rao - 2014 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 37 (4):437-438.
    Intentional change when viewed as making a risky or intertemporal choice with evolutionary relevance helps us understand its successes and its failures. To promote future-oriented ecological rationality requires establishing a linkage between nongenetic, cultural, and symbolic selections and genetic adaptations. Coupled with biophilic instinct, intentional conservation is more likely to prevail against evolved desires of environmental exploitation.
