(1/18) Exploring attitudes: the case for Q methodology.

Attitudes are often referred to, researched and considered in the discipline of health education and health promotion. This paper highlights Q methodology as an appropriate and relevant means of exploring and studying attitudes within this field. It begins by discussing the difficulties in defining attitude and the problems inherent in attitude measurement. A brief history of Q methodology is given, followed by an explanation of what Q methodology is and the processes involved. This paper argues the case for the use of Q methodology when studying attitudes and justifies why Q methodology should particularly be selected in the study of attitudes within the health field. There are many reasons for this assertion which are explored throughout the paper. The principle one is that Q methodology is a more robust technique, than alternative methods, for the measurement of attitudes and subjective opinion. This paper concludes by proposing that Q methodology is taken up by researchers within health education and health promotion who are concerned with exploring attitudes and subjective opinion.  (+info)

(2/18) Assessing adolescent personality pathology.

BACKGROUND: Personality pathology constitutes a major form of psychopathology in adolescents. AIMS: To examine the reliability and validity of a Q-sort instrument for assessing adolescent personality pathology designed for clinically experienced informants. METHOD: A sample of 294 randomly selected psychiatrists and psychologists each provided data on a current patient, aged 14-18 years. Clinicians completed several measures, including the Shedler-Westen Assessment Procedure for Adolescents (SWAP-200-A). RESULTS: Factor analysis identified II dimensions of adolescent personality: psychopathology/malignant narcissism, dysphoria/inhibition, psychological health, histrionic sexualisation, schizotypy, sexual conflict, emotional dysregulation, anxious obsessionality, peer rejection, delinquent behaviour and attentional dysregulation. These correlated in predicted ways with a range of criterion variables, including measures of adaptive functioning, Axis II pathology, the Five Factor Model and the Child Behavior Checklist. CONCLUSIONS: The SWAP-200-A shows promise as an instrument for assessing personality pathology in adolescents. Trait dimensions such as delinquent behaviour and emotional dysregulation may prove useful additions to a classification of personality.  (+info)

(3/18) Behavioral control and resiliency in the onset of alcohol and illicit drug use: a prospective study from preschool to adolescence.

The developmental trajectories of behavioral control and resiliency from early childhood to adolescence and their effects on early onset of substance use were examined. Behavioral control is the tendency to express or contain one's impulses and behaviors. Resiliency is the ability to adapt flexibly one's characteristic level of control in response to the environment. Study participants were 514 children of alcoholics and matched controls from a longitudinal community sample (Time 1 age in years: M=4.32, SD=0.89). Children with slower rates of increase in behavioral control were more likely to use alcohol and other drugs in adolescence. Children with higher initial levels of resiliency were less likely to begin using alcohol.  (+info)

(4/18) The relation of attachment security to adolescents' paternal and peer relationships, depression, and externalizing behavior.

The relation of attachment security to multiple domains of psychosocial functioning was examined in a community sample of 167 early adolescents. Security of attachment organization, assessed using the Adult Attachment Interview, was linked to success in establishing autonomy while maintaining a sense of relatedness both with fathers and with peers, even after accounting for predictions from qualities of the mother-teen relationship. Growth curve analyses revealed links of insecurity to increasing patterns of externalizing behavior and higher and stable patterns of depressive symptoms across adolescence. Implications for a developing theory of the connections of the attachment system to multiple domains of functioning in adolescence are discussed.  (+info)

(5/18) Lifestyle-adjusted function: variation beyond BADL and IADL competencies.


(6/18) Personality subtypes of suicidal adults.


(7/18) Convergence of internal and external structure for the California Child Q-set.

The language of personality traits includes single-word trait descriptors, and longer phrases or sentences. Evidence has accumulated that abstract, semantic relationships among single words have the same underlying structure as the empirical relationships when words are applied to individuals. The present study examines whether these two kinds of structure are also isomorphic for longer trait descriptors. Empirical descriptions and judgements of semantic similarity were collected among the descriptors comprising the California Child Q-set, or CCQ, and analysed with multidimensional scaling. Canonical correlation showed the solutions to be closely related to one another, and to independent sets of ratings available for the CCQ items. Informants' similarity judgements were not affected by the context in which they were made. The dominant dimensions of the solutions reproduce dimensions found previously for the single-word personality lexicon, indicating the two trait-descriptive languages to be closely parallel.  (+info)

(8/18) Four different patterns of fatigue in rheumatoid arthritis patients: results of a Q-sort study.


  • Efficient
  • For problem instances in which the maximum key value is significantly smaller than the number of items, counting sort can be highly space-efficient, as the only storage it uses other than its input and output arrays is the Count array which uses space O(k). (
  • strings
  • different functions can be used to translate the range of elements in A to subarrays, such as converting the letters A-Z to 0-25 or returning the first character (0-255) for sorting strings. (
  • list
  • It takes one iteration to build a sorted sublist of length 1, 2 iterations to build a sorted sublist of length two and finally n-1 iterations to build the final list. (
  • In computer science , a sorting algorithm is an algorithm that puts elements of a list in a certain order . (
  • This allows the possibility of multiple different correctly sorted versions of the original list. (
  • it would not suffice to return only a sorted list of the key digits, separated from the items. (
  • Then the gap is divided by the shrink factor again, the list is sorted with this new gap, and the process repeats until the gap is 1. (
  • At this point, comb sort continues using a gap of 1 until the list is fully sorted. (
  • This will be the sorted list. (
  • A list of zero or one elements is sorted, by definition. (
  • At each array-position, it checks the value there against the largest value in the sorted list (which happens to be next to it, in the previous array-position checked). (
  • If smaller, it finds the correct position within the sorted list, shifts all the larger values up to make a space, and inserts into that correct position. (
  • The average, or expected, running time is O(n2), but tends towards O(n) if the list is initially almost sorted. (
  • The "current position" is highlighted in bold: The gnome sort may be optimized by introducing a variable to store the position before traversing back toward the beginning of the list. (
  • 25 Adding up the beads in each column after turning the initial sums into the new rows gives the backwards 26 version of the sorted list, which is then turned around using list slicing. (
  • To illustrate the idea of cycle sort, consider a list with distinct elements. (
  • Given an element a, we can find the index at which it will occur in the sorted list by simply counting the number of elements in the entire list that are smaller than a. (
  • Repeating this process for every element sorts the list, with a single writing operation if and only if an element is not already at its correct position. (
  • pigeonhole
  • Like the Pigeonhole sort, bead sort is unusual in that in worst case it can perform faster than O(n log n), the fastest performance possible for a comparison sort in worst case. (
  • data
  • To determine whether there are any best or worst cases for the sort, we can examine the algorithm to find data sets that would behave differently from the average case with random data. (
  • The nature of the sorting algorithm does however lend itself to perform more efficiently on certain data. (
  • A comparison sort examines the data only by comparing two elements with a comparison operator. (
  • When sorting some kinds of data, only part of the data is examined when determining the sort order. (
  • An internal sort is any data sorting process that takes place entirely within the main memory of a computer. (
  • This is possible whenever the data to be sorted is small enough to all be held in the main memory. (
  • For sorting larger datasets, it may be necessary to hold only a chunk of data in memory at a time, since it won't all fit. (
  • This approach minimises the number or reads and writes of data-chunks from disk, and is a popular external sort method. (
  • 1980
  • In 1980 Recommended Records released a limited edition of Sort Of on LP, and the album was reissued on CD by Blueprint Records in 1999 with one bonus track. (
  • Comb sort is a relatively simple sorting algorithm originally designed by Włodzimierz Dobosiewicz in 1980. (
  • They went on to release Under en sort sol in 1980, a more experimental album, influenced in part by Joy Division, Pere Ubu and Television. (
  • buckets
  • Bucket sort, or bin sort, is a sorting algorithm that works by distributing the elements of an array into a number of buckets. (
  • buckets[n-Here array is the array to be sorted and n is the number of buckets to use. (
  • Note that for bucket sort to be O ( n ) {\displaystyle O(n)} on average, the number of buckets n must be equal to the length of the array being sorted, and the input array must be uniformly distributed across the range of possible bucket values. (
  • Since keys are not compared against each other, sorting time is O(cn), where c depends on the size of the key and number of buckets. (
  • however
  • however, compared to counting sort, bucket sort requires linked lists, dynamic arrays or a large amount of preallocated memory to hold the sets of items within each bucket, whereas counting sort instead stores a single number (the count of items) per bucket. (
  • order
  • If it is desired that the result set be sorted, the process is even lengthier unless the documents are tested in an order that coincidentally matches the sort order (e.g., in alphabetical order). (
  • The first pass will compare pairs of random keys, but the last pass will compare keys that are very close in the sorting order. (
  • If we then allow the beads to fall, the rows now represent the same integers in sorted order. (
  • The array ends up sorted in the order of the hashes, so choosing a hash function that gives you the right ordering is important. (
  • input
  • In some descriptions of counting sort, the input to be sorted is assumed to be more simply a sequence of integers itself, but this simplification does not accommodate many applications of counting sort. (
  • This performance degradation is avoided in the original bucket sort algorithm by assuming that the input is generated by a random process that distributes elements uniformly over the interval [0,1). (
  • It benefits from the presortedness in the input sequence - or a limited amount of disorder for various definitions of measures of disorder - and sorts faster. (
  • In other words, the more presorted the input is, the faster it should be sorted. (
  • In this sorting algorithm, we scan the input from left to right, repeatedly finding the position of the current item, and insert it into an array of previously sorted items. (
  • Function
  • The function has the side effect of overwriting the value stored immediately after the sorted sequence in the array. (
  • example
  • For example, in the card sorting example to the right, the cards are being sorted by their rank, and their suit is being ignored. (
  • an example of how to extend sort. (
  • Bead sort can be implemented with four general levels of complexity, among others: O(1): The beads are all moved simultaneously in the same time unit, as would be the case with the simple physical example above. (
  • displaystyle
  • Once a ProxmapSort is complete, ProxmapSearch can be used to find keys in the sorted array in O ( 1 ) {\displaystyle O(1)} time if the keys were well distributed during the sort. (
  • array
  • Let i be an index of A. Sort A's keys into array A2 of equal size. (
  • add in new key } } Here A is the array to be sorted and the mapKey functions determines the number of subarrays to use. (
  • Because counting sort uses key values as indexes into an array, it is not a comparison sort, and the Ω(n log n) lower bound for comparison sorting does not apply to it. (
  • Finally, it loops over the items again, moving each item into its sorted position in the output array. (
  • until whole array is sorted. (
  • The resulting array after k iterations has the property where the first k + 1 entries are sorted ("+1" because the first entry is skipped). (
  • Unlike nearly every other sort, items are never written elsewhere in the array simply to push them out of the way of the action. (
  • Sort an array in place and return the number of writes. (
  • case
  • Ideal behavior for a serial sort is O( n ), but this is not possible in the average case. (
  • That's fair - I find it more convenient to use sort -l in the case of sorting on the second key of a file, but a note in the docs about using awk's 'length' (which didn't occur to me at the time) would be good enough. (
  • element
  • That is, the first element will already be sorted, the first two will already be sorted, the first three, and so on. (
  • There's a small trick that if the new element being pushed into the queue is less than the last element added to the run, then the element's sort value is increased so it will be part of the next run. (
  • The inner loop moves element A[i] to its correct place so that after the loop, the first i+2 elements are sorted. (
  • initially
  • To make it slightly more complicated, one could initially sort the bricks by their color and then build objects that are either blue, red, green or yellow. (
  • comprise
  • Sort sol in the marsh near Tønder can occasionally comprise a formation with up to one million birds. (
  • simple
  • From the beginning of computing, the sorting problem has attracted a great deal of research, perhaps due to the complexity of solving it efficiently despite its simple, familiar statement. (
  • computer
  • The invention relates generally to computer systems, and more particularly to a system and method for providing a sorted result set of files in a file system in response to a query. (
  • Bead sort, also called gravity sort, is a natural sorting algorithm, developed by Joshua J. Arulanandham, Cristian S. Calude and Michael J. Dinneen in 2002, and published in The Bulletin of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science. (
  • different
  • Researchers from the DWI - Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials in Aachen and the University of Freiburg now developed a set of four different, micrometer-sized building blocks, which can self-sort and co-assemble into defined compositions and disassemble at the push of a button. (
  • method
  • A system and method for returning a sorted result set of information corresponding to files in a file system that have properties which match user query criteria. (
  • Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a system and method for rapidly providing a sorted result set of files in response to a query. (
