Psychological investigatory publications

In mid-2012 I started doing day-to-day research of the Online Disinhibition Effect, the consequences and the potential outcomes associated with the effect. I have recently seen others begin research into this subject, their findings and mine will be below. 


In August, 2012 I started an unlisted paper titled 'Outcomes & Consequences of the Online Disinhibiton Effect'. The paper is divided into five parts: 

I. Internet and it's role in societal norm abandonment

II. Real World consequences and behavioural attitude adjustment associated with the abandonment

III. Larger scale conflicts and psychological warfare

IV. Delusion in reality

V. A future torn apart

In part one, I discussed the internet and it's role in what society would define as 'normal' and how the internet abandons many common values. 

Unfortunately I cannot provide the somewhat long and semi-arduous papers (including mine) because of the word limit. If you would like a copy please feel free to ask and ill send it as soon as possible.

DOSOMETHING.org defines the outcomes as: "The psychological and emotional outcomes of cyber bullying are similar to those of real-life bullying. The difference is, real-life bullying often ends when school ends. For cyber bullying, there is no escape."


A scholarly paper by Susan Keith and Michelle E. Martin discusses cyber bullying in depth. It also looks at cyber exploitation and approved statistics. A snippet of the paper is below: 


"Another survey conducted by the Crimes against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire (Wollack  &  Mitchell, 2000) found that along with sexual solicitations and approaches online (19% of children surveyed received unwanted sexual solicitation), six percent of the young people surveyed experienced harassing incidents including threats, rumors, or other offensive behavior, and two percent reported episodes of distressing harassment that they described as making them feel very or extremely upset or afraid."

Perhaps the most similar publication to mine surfaced globally. View the names here: http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/abs/10.1089/cpb.2007.0042?2&
