The temporal proception and conception, including space-time mapping, may vary across different contexts, related to different cultural attitudes with time and the individual’s temporal focus. Some research further reveals that the experience of pregnancy may influence women’s space-time mappings. The previous series of studies have inferred that, besides the causation between the experience of pregnancy and space-time mappings, it is essential to discuss this relationship from other cultural aspects. Social media reliance has embedded in nowadays culture, and studies have shown that extensive focus on either social media or past-oriented thoughts experiences more severe negative moods. In the proposed study, we will test whether the reliance on social media is associated with people’s space-time mappings, as previously shown in women’s tendency to have more future-oriented thoughts during their pregnancy experience. The relationship between social media reliance and space-time mapping will be measured by a) the social media use questionnaire, b) the temporal focus questionnaire, and c) the Chinese version of the temporal diagram task adapted from de la Fuente et al.
