Both the WBSI and Engelbart systems used 300-baud dial-up modems for long-distance connections, which were impractically slow for serious collaborative work.
WBSI was using EIES (Electronic Information Exchange System), a partitioned, threaded text-archiving system that allowed groups to engage in real back-and-forth conversations and then save and index the discussion for future reference.
The WBSI had been administered in a collective testing session 2 to 8 weeks prior to the experiment.
WBSI scores did not significantly differ between conditions, p = .74.
Structural validity and reliability of White Bear Suppression Inventory (WBSI
) in the sample of general population.
Both groups showed better psychological health as measured by the SCL-90-R when acceptance was higher (i.e., lower AAQ scores), and the tendency to suppress unwanted thoughts (WBSI) or to fear sadness (FOST) were lower.
In order to explore the possible source of differences between the two groups in psychological health as measured by the SCL-90-R, a series of analyses of covariance were calculated, using specific coping processes (AAQ; RAQ; WBSI, FOST; TCQ) and degree of acculturation as the covariate and racial grouping as the independent variable.
The WBSI has demonstrated excellent internal stability (r = .89) and good test-retest reliability (r = .69) over 3-week to 3-month testing periods (Wegner & Zanakos, 1994).
There were significant differences across age groups on total scores for the RAS, F(2, 52) = 6.59; p < .005 and for the WBSI, F(2, 53) = 3.56; p < .05.
The original WBSI
research, which was funded by the NIJ, indicated that robbers are deterred by brightly lit stores in which employees and cash registers are clearly visible from the street.
This was completed using a hierarchical regression where the dependent variable was thought suppression (the WBSI
) and the independent variables were social anxiety (the SPS) which was entered on Step 1, followed by the SA-AAQ on Step 2.
Several of the samples in the present series were used to examine the relationship between the AAQ and related concepts using the White Bear Suppression Inventory (WBSI
), the Thought Control Questionnaire (TCQ), the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES), subscales from the Ways of Coping Questionnaire (WOC), the Post-traumatic Stress Diagnostic Scale (PDS), and the Impact of Events Scale (IES).
