Less is sometimes more: study of decision - making in the context of cognition, intuition and well-being
Schautová, Nina ; Bahbouh, Radvan (advisor) ; Höschlová, Eva (referee) ; Buriánek, Jiří (referee)
This dissertation presents results from three research projects, which extend available findings in the area of psychology of decision-making. It focuses on intuitive decision-making, the role of context and its relationship to decisional satisfaction and well-being. First research project addressed the possibility of generalisation of selected intuitive heuristics on non-financial decisions. Despite some methodological issues, results show that we invest time more easily than money, and intuitive heuristics cannot be automatically generalized to time decisions. Second research project focuses on context and its impact on decisional satisfaction. It shows decisional satisfaction can be influenced through decisional context. Eliminating escalation of commitment impacted resulting satisfaction on an experiential level, although cognitive level remained intact. Last research project focused on interindividual differences in relation to decisional satisfaction and well-being. Results show that higher competence influences decisional style, but it only higher self-confidence, perceived decisiveness, comes with higher decisional satisfaction and well-being. Data from this study do not allow to make judgment as to the direction of a causal relationship. Nevertheless, it opens many new questions in the...

This thesis is focused on topic of games used in teambuilding while presenting knowledge from theory and proposal of effectiveness verification in practice. The theoretical part is devoted to defining teambuilding and method of games and further analyzes psychological aspects involved in the process. The psychological aspects are categorized chronologically in three phases - psychological aspects entering the process before its beginning (team composition, motivation and expectation of team members), psychological aspects occurring during the teambuilding (the role of lecturer, atmosphere of psychological safety, debriefing etc.) and finally psychological aspects, which could be observed after teambuilding (effectiveness, possibilities and limits). The project of research deals with verification of teambuilding program effectiveness in the area of proclaimed objectives.

Then we confront gender stereotypes, army requirements and research data. Finally, we address big issues of women working in army, like sexual harrasment, motherhood and marriage of soldiers. Here we study problems like harrasement by a superior or effect of long period absence on a child. We inquire into how women in army are percieved by their male counterparts, gender roles in army and dilemma of double perception of female combatants - as women and as soldiers. Keywords: Gender, army, sex differences, psychology, work, ocupation
