The moderating influence of self-efficacy on interoceptive ability and counterintuitive decision making in officer cadets

, we extended this line of research in a high-performing sample of cyber officer cadets and investigated the interaction of intuitive decision-making tendency as a personality factor (interoception) with subjective SSE in a specific task. The applied cognitive reflection task requires the inhibition of “System 1” cognition for successful task execution, which means that intuitive and seemingly correct obvious answers are wrong, whereas deeper reflection and counterintuitive thinking are required to identify the correct response. The results of this study suggest an

particular risk factors for developing gaming problems ( Lemmens et al. 2009 ; Rehbein et al. 2010 ).

However, another study reported that the frequency of video game use was lower among soldiers compared to that in the general population and suggested that cadets may be a special population ( Orvis et al. 2010 ). Third, sensation seeking has been found to be related to risk-taking behavior, and high levels of sensation seeking have been found in

unpredictability and high stakes inherent in organized violence, it should hardly be surprising that even this kind of interaction has been institutionalized. Following Seumas Miller, institutions involve differentiated and repetitive actions performed by different actors, which furthermore comply with systems of conventions and social norms ( Miller 2010 : 23–24). Focusing on international institutions, Kalevi Holsti in turn emphasizes historical change and sees that they “represent patterned (typical) actions and interactions of states, the norms, rules, and principles that
