(mirror) Social Psychological and Personality Science-2012-Förster-108-17. Sense Creative! The Impact of Global and Local Vision, Hearing, Touching, Tasting and Smelling on Creative and Analytic Thought. Abstract Holistic (global) versus elemental (local) perception reflects a prominent distinction in psychology; however, so far it has almost entirely been examined in the domain of vision.

Sense Creative! The Impact of Global and Local Vision, Hearing, Touching, Tasting and Smelling on Creative and Analytic Thought

Current work suggests that global/local processing styles operate across sensory modalities. As for vision, it is assumed that global processing broadens mental categories in memory, enhancing creativity. Furthermore, local processing should support performance in analytic tasks. Throughout separate 12 studies, participants were asked to look at, listen to, touch, taste or smell details of objects, or to perceive them as wholes.

Net toen hij op het punt stond te vertrekken naar de Ruhr-Universität Bochum, alwaar een beurs van 5 miljoen euro op hem wachtte, adviseerde het Landelijk Orgaan Wetenschappelijk Integriteit de UvA in ieder geval één van zijn onderzoeksartikelen terug te trekken.

How Power Analysis Could Have Prevented the Sad Story of Dr. Förster

Förster published an article in Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. The article reported 12 studies and each study reported several hypothesis tests. The abstract reports that “In all experiments, global/local processing in 1 modality shifted to global/local processing in the other modality”. For a while this article was just another article that reported a large number of studies that all worked and neither reviewers nor the editor who accepted the manuscript for publication found anything wrong with the reported results.

Professor Förster was nominated by the Ruhr Universität Bochum and was supposed to take up his position as a Humboldt Professor there in mid-2014. On 22 April 2014, just a few days before the scheduled ceremony to award the Humboldt Professorship, the University of Amsterdam came to the conclusion in the course of an investigation that Professor Förster was responsible for a case of scientific misconduct. In keeping with its rules of good scientific practice and at Professor Förster’s request, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation subsequently suspended its funding decision until the facts have been clarified and its Selection Committee has deliberated.

The Impact of Global and Local Vision, Hearing, Touching, Tasting and Smelling on Creative and Analytic Thought,” a paper which first appeared in Social Psychological and Personality Science: The editor of Social Psychological and Personality Science, along with the journal’s consortium of proprietor societies and its publisher, SAGE Publications, have retracted this article at the request of the Executive Board of the University of Amsterdam.

The deliberations scheduled to take place with the Foundation’s executive bodies on the decision to temporarily suspend sponsorship are, therefore, not being held. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awarded Jens Förster a Humboldt Professorship in 2013. He was due to move from the University of Amsterdam to Ruhr-Universität Bochum in mid-2014. In March 2014, the Netherlands Board on Research Integrity (LOWI) came to the conclusion that Professor Förster had been responsible for scientific misconduct in a publication. The University of Amsterdam concurred with this assessment. “We respect Professor Förster’s decision and hope that the allegations raised against him, which are still a matter of controversy amongst experts, can be definitively clarified,” said the President of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Helmut Schwarz.

Social psychologist relinquishes chair after data manipulation charges. Jens Förster, the German social psychologist found responsible for data manipulation last year, has withdrawn his candidacy for a prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship at Ruhr University Bochum (RUB).

Social psychologist relinquishes chair after data manipulation charges

His decision was made public today in a statement by the Humboldt Foundation. It's unclear whether Förster decided to relinquish the professorship—which comes with €5 million in funding—because he expects an ongoing investigation to issue a damaging report. Also unclear is whether Förster can continue to work at RUB, where he currently has a temporary position; a long personal statement published today on Förster's website doesn't directly address that issue. "I will leave the materialistic and soulless production approach in science," the text reads, however. "I am going my own way now.” In the controversial studies, Förster investigated how "priming" by subtle cues—such as a smell or hearing a poem—can change a person's cognitive response.

Beleaguered Förster turns down prestigious professorship, citing personal toll. Jens Förster Jens Förster, a social scientist accused of research misconduct, has turned down a highly coveted — and well-endowed — professorship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Foster explained his decision to decline the 5 million Euro award in a post on his personal website: Some time ago, I decided to return the Alexander von Humboldt-Professorship, for which I had been selected 1 year ago to the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Stiftung.The decision I made in a rather relaxed situation. I hope that nobody thinks anymore that I did something unethical and I would urge those who still have doubts to read the recent excellent alternative explanations for my results under discussion, proving that such results patterns can be obtained by methods that are not problematic.

More statistical analyses will follow.Still, I am afraid that the conflict with the University of Amsterdam will furthermore cost a lot of energy. But here comes the point: I do not want this anymore. Jelte Wicherts sur Twitter : "After Förster case, Humboldt foundation should reconsider handing out perverse €5m grants (incl. €900k salary bonus) Jelte Wicherts sur Twitter : "Jens Förster is informed about results of further investigations into his work & relinquishes his €5m grant.

Jens Förster social priming scandal. The scandal-ridden field of social priming research has taken yet another blow. Leading social psychologist Jens Förster has resigned his prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Professorship at Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) after being found responsible for data manipulation. Förster, formerly a leader in his field, was investigated by a Dutch national research integrity panel in 2014 and found to have manipulated data in a 2012 study about the effect of auditory and olfactory ‘priming’ on cognitive ability. Förster’s resignation comes following another broader reaching investigation conducted by his former employer, the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The results of that investigation are yet to be published, but a UvA source says that the report is finished and that Förster has been informed of the findings.

Förster denies any wrongdoing and feels like he is “the victim of an incredible witchhunt”. This article is published by Xavier Symons and BioEdge.org under a Creative Commons licence.

Radio Bochum :  Der Sozialpsychologe Jens Förster kommt nicht an die Ruhr-Universität. Ruhr-Uni Bochum bootet Statistik-Dozenten aus. Wenn das nichts für seine leidgeplagten Statistikstudenten ist: Vor ein paar Jahren entdeckte Raphael Diepgen, Dozent an der Ruhr-Uni Bochum, eine Studie mit einem sensationellen Ergebnis. Wer an Sex denkt, schneide besser im analytischen Denken ab. Das wollte das Forscherteam eines renommierten Sozialpsychologen herausgefunden haben. Was für eine Vorlage, um die trockenen Vorlesungen aufzulockern, dachte Diepgen. Wenn Sie gute Statistiker werden wollen, erklärte er den Studenten fortan scherzhaft, denken Sie doch häufiger mal an Sex.
