Optimizing the influence of social norms interventions: Applying social identity insights to motivate residential water conservation
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Ellin Lede, Rose Meleady, Charles R. SegerAbstractSocial norms-based interventions offer a promising avenue to encourage proenvironmental behavior change. From a social identity perspective, it is argued that social norms communications will be maximally effective when they are tied to salient group memberships and supportive ingroup norms are communicated. Across four studies conducted in a water scarce region in England we demonstrate that a water conservation ingroup norms appeal encourages a...
Heuristics in energy judgement tasks
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Karlijn L. van den Broek, Ian WalkerAbstractTo save energy effectively, householders need to be aware of the energy consumption in their homes, in particular the energy use of their household appliances. People's perception of the energy use of their appliances has been found to be influenced by the use of heuristics (simple rules for making quick decisions), yet these heuristics have received little research attention. Three studies investigated the use of these energy judgement heuristics using...
Physical and emotional support of the neighborhood for older adults: A comparison of the United States and Germany
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Katharina König, Martina Raue, Lisa A. D'Ambrosio, Joseph F. CoughlinAbstractThe living environment plays a critical role in healthy aging. As older adults' physical abilities decrease, they are less likely to compensate for physical barriers and their action radius decreases. Therefore, older adults strongly depend on the neighborhood to meet their needs. The neighborhood environment also has a role to play in the fulfillment of older adults' emotional needs, which are key to successful aging in...

From functional bonds to place identity: Place attachment of Polish migrants living in London and Oslo
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Agnieszka TrąbkaAbstractThe relationship between spatial mobility and place attachment has always been an important part of the psychology of place. However, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the context of international migration. Thus, this paper brings together the existing scholarship on place attachment and migration studies in order to discuss the development of place attachment among settled migrants, focusing on the example of Poles living in London and Oslo. Drawing on 60...
Effects of adjustable dynamic bedroom lighting in a maternity ward
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Markus Canazei, Wilfried Pohl, Johannes Weninger, Harald Bliem, Elisabeth M. Weiss, Christiane Koch, Astrid Berger, Branka Firulovic, Christian MarthAbstractThere exists initial evidence for beneficial daylight effects in hospital bedrooms. However, study results with automatically controlled dynamic bedroom lights were so far inconclusive. It can be hypothesized that inclusion of critically ill patients and unpleasant fixed bright light stimuli so far could have masked non-visual light effects on...
The gateway belief model: A large-scale replication
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Sander van der Linden, Anthony Leiserowitz, Edward MaibachAbstractThe Gateway Belief Model describes a process of attitudinal change where a shift in people's perception of the scientific consensus on an issue leads to subsequent changes in their attitudes which in turn predict changes in support for public action. In the current study, we present the first large-scale confirmatory replication of the GBM. Specifically, we conducted a consensus message experiment on a national quota sample of the US...
Understanding the relationship between smoking and place across multiple places through the lens of place attachment
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Sara Parry, Louise M. HassanAbstractThis article explores the psychological processes of place attachment across multiple public and private places and makes an empirical contribution in a smoking context. The study focuses on the range of places that smokers use, the place attachment process within those places, and the relevancy of place for the self-concept. A qualitative approach was adopted and consisted of interviews with 30 UK smokers. Three themes capture the processes by which smokers form...
The self-regulatory power of environmental lighting: The effect of illuminance and correlated color temperature
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Seo Yoon Kang, Nara Youn, Heakyung Cecilia YoonAbstractAmbient lighting—in particular, its brightness—is known to affect cognitive activation and self-control, but research on lighting has reported mixed effects. Some studies have shown that brightness increases cognitive activation, whereas others have shown that darkness prompts cognitive activation. In this research, we attempted to reconcile those inconsistent findings by investigating how lighting's effects on cognition are affected by...
Do environmental concern and future orientation predict metered household electricity use?
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Heidi Bruderer Enzler, Andreas Diekmann, Ulf LiebeAbstractDo individuals' environmental attitudes and future orientation predict actual energy consumption? Little is known about the answer to this fundamental question because previous research has relied on self-reported behaviour, which might be prone to social desirability. Therefore, the present study combines survey data with metered data on actual electricity use. Environmental concern is measured by attitudinal items, future orientation by a...
The psychological contamination of pro-environmental consensus: Political pressure for environmental belief agreement undermines its long-term power
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Lucian Gideon Conway, Meredith A. RepkeAbstractIs political pressure effective at producing pro-environmental action? While political pressure can have benefits, it may also sow the seeds for long-term backlash because it psychologically contaminates any emerging consensus. Three studies demonstrate the value of considering this psychological contamination perspective across three different environmental domains. Study 1 (n = 151) demonstrated that psychological contamination about climate...
Processing of natural scenery is associated with lower attentional and cognitive load compared with urban ones
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 62Author(s): Simone Grassini, Antti Revonsuo, Serena Castellotti, Irene Petrizzo, Viola Benedetti, Mika KoivistoAbstractEnvironmental psychology has provided evidence for psychologically favorable effects of exposure to natural settings, by means of controlled laboratory experiments as well as outdoor field studies. Most of these studies have employed subjective rating scales to assess processes and outcomes of exposure to nature, while only few of them have used physiological measures to assess the neural...
Local Norms and Moving Intentions: The Mediating Role of Neighborhood Satisfaction
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: Available online 14 March 2019Source: Journal of Environmental PsychologyAuthor(s): Jasper Van Assche, Tessa Haesevoets, Arne RoetsAbstractPrevious research has shown that neighborhood (dis)satisfaction is an important determinant for individuals’ moving intentions. Attempts by policy makers to boost neighborhood satisfaction, and hence reduce the exodus of people out of particular neighborhoods, have often involved physical interventions and development projects, such as new parks or infrastructure. In the present study, however, we consider this issue from a...

Hout, Arryn Robbins, Justin Macdonald, Gregor Hayn-Leichsenring, Marc G. BermanAbstractIn the following experiments, we examined whether perceptions of naturalness in architecture are linked to objective visual patterns, and we investigated how natural patterns influence aesthetic evaluations of architectural scenes. Experiment 1 revealed that visual patterns of architecture explained over half of the variance in...
Self-affirmation theory and pro-environmental behaviour: Promoting a reduction in household food waste
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: Available online 18 February 2019Source: Journal of Environmental PsychologyAuthor(s): Ella Graham-Rowe, Donna C. Jessop, Paul SparksAbstractHousehold food waste has a significant detrimental impact on the environment. However, despite national campaigns, people in high income countries throw away a sizeable proportion of the food they purchase. The present study investigated whether self-affirmation could promote openness to information detailing the negative consequences of household food waste, with a particular focus on fruit and vegetable waste. Participants...
Green consumption does not make people cheat: Three attempts to replicate moral licensing effect due to pro-environmental behavior
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: Available online 1 February 2019Source: Journal of Environmental PsychologyAuthor(s): Jan Urban, Štěpán Bahník, Markéta Braun KohlováAbstractA recent study (Mazar & Zhong, 2010) argued that green consumption triggers cross-domain moral licensing, which makes people engage in dishonest behavior. In two conceptual and one close replication of this study (total N = 1,274), we manipulated participants’ level of green consumption. Three different validated tasks, which allowed participants to cheat for monetary profit, were used to measure dishonesty in the three...
