Special Issue of Timing & Time Perception


Guest editors: Marco Fabbri, Elisabeth Åström, and Marc Wittmann

Time offers a dimension for all our activities, defines our behavior,
and is an essential part of our life. Several time dimensions have
been defined:

(1) Time perception (TP) has a fundamental impact on individuals’
optimal functioning, and it can be characterized as the matching or
mismatching between objective and subjective time. Two main concepts
constitute our experience of time: succession (i.e., identification of
event temporal order) and duration (i.e., identification of event
persistence over time). However, different personality and psychiatric
disorders, including developmental issues, such as impulsivity,
depression, and anxiety can impact the perception of time.

(2) Experience is cognitively parsed or tagged into separable time
zones, as the time perspective or time orientations (TO), which play a
role in the construction of human experience into past, present, and
future temporal frames. This cognitive construction provides order,
coherence, and meaning for personal and social experience. Thereby, it
is important to reach a healthy balance between the time orientations
of the past, the present, and the future and this balance can be
considered the ability to learn from the past, to adapt in the
present, and to engage in goal-oriented behavior in the future.
Personality traits can be related to different time orientations as
well as to the deviation from the balanced time perspective.

(3) Time awareness (TA) is defined as the subjective impression of
time passing quickly or slowly. It is also associated with personality
dimensions: for example, impulsive individuals often complain that
time passes too slowly and, therefore, react prematurely.

(4) Finally, circadian typology indicates individual circadian rhythms
(CR) from a biological approach. Morningness-eveningness preference
has been widely associated with personality, suggesting, for example,
that morning-types are more conscientious, whereas evening-types are
more related to extraversion or neuroticism.  Research on the
connections between the different time dimensions is scarce and
unsystematic, especially those indicating the role of personality in
individual “temporal” differences.

This Special Issue on “Psychological and Biological Time: The Role of
Personality” aims to fill the gap in the literature, showing how
different time dimensions are interrelated and connected to individual
differences and personality development. Authors from all areas of
psychology and neuroscience are encouraged to submit research or
review articles addressing the scope of the research topic.

1.            Deadline for submission: June 1, 2019.
2.            Instructions for submission:  The submission website is
located at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/timebrill/. To ensure that
all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the
special issue it is important to select “Special Issue: Psychological
and Biological Time: The Role of Personality” when you reach the
“Article Type” step in the submission process. More details on format
that must be followed in preparing your manuscripts see here
3.            Standard peer review/revision process will be followed.
4.            Final decisions are expected approximately by November 30, 2019.
