difficulties in determining career, emotional and behavioural problems, fear of missing out (FoMO), political participation, self-disclosure training, turnover intentions


Mediapsi volume 7, number 2, December 2021 has published seven empirical articles. Each of the articles investigated multifarious topics. The first article is experimentation, which revealed that the career decision-making course (CDMC) was effective in reducing students’ career decision making difficulties. The experiment in the second article demonstrated that self-disclosure training significantly increased the self-acceptance of adolescent students with cerebral palsy. The third article is qualitative research using a systematic review to identify and analyse various definitions and types of a case study. The fourth article examined fear of missing out (FoMO) and found that this variable, controlling for trait self-control, was suboptimal in explaining physical activity among Instagram users. The topic in the fifth article has to do with adolescents’ emotional and behavioural problems. The findings in this article showed that male and female adolescents reported the same emotional and behavioural problems. The sixth article is a quantitative correlational study, which reported that among private school teachers, the lower the tenure, the more negative the relationship between job satisfaction and intentions to leave the organization or workplace. The seventh article is a correlational quantitative study that found how political trust, political efficacy, and candidate orientation played a significant role either simultaneously or partially in explaining political participation.
