How personality and genetics impact link between racial discrimination and problem drinking
Arizona State University (ASU)

A study published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence shows that the connection of racial discrimination to problem drinking differs based on personality traits. People who tend to act impulsively in response to negative experiences are more likely to report problematic alcohol use that is associated with racism. But, people who enjoy seeking out new experiences are less likely to report problematic alcohol use that is associated with racism. Though this personality trait is thought to be a common risk factor for alcohol use disorder, this study suggests that people with sensation-seeking personalities can better tolerate or cope with difficult situations such as racism.

Children Do Not Understand Concept of Others Having False Beliefs Until Age 6 or 7
Arizona State University (ASU)

Understanding how others think, including the ability of other people to hold false beliefs, is important for social interaction. Called theory of mind, this ability has been thought to occur in children around age 4 years. Research from Arizona State University suggests otherwise and shows that children do not understand others’ false beliefs until age 6 or 7 years. Young children can pass theory-of-mind experiments using rudimentary concepts of seeing and knowing, without an understanding of mental representation. This work has implications for development and education.
