The statistical population of this study consisted of 117 freshmen studying under the faculties selected from the University of Tabriz. The generalised structural equation modelling technique was employed for data analysis. The research results indicated that CRT and numeracy had positive and significant effects on high school and university program selection. According to the research model and the higher CRT scores of engineering and medicine (two popular majors) than that of other majors, it appears that individuals with higher CRT and numeracy scores are more inclined to get accepted into these programs. Moreover, the relationship between CRT and numeracy was positive and significant, where CRT acted as the cause and numeracy as the effect. However, the reverse need not necessarily be true.</p> <p>Keywords: Cognitive reflection, numeracy skill, academic majors, relationship.</p> </div> </div> </div> Mostafa H Deldoost, Parviz Mohammadzadeh, Akram Akbari, Mohammad Taghi Saeedi ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjpr/article/view/3928 Sun, 31 Mar 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Prediction of drug tendency use on the basis of religious orientation and thrill-seeking of students https://sproc.org/ojs/index.php/gjpr/article/view/4109 <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The aim of this study is to predict the trends in drug use and sensation seeking on the basis of religious orientation in students of Islamic Azad University Branch of Roodehen in the first semester of the school year 92–93.
