Social Judgment Research Team
Office: 115-A Williams
We take a social-personality psychology approach to studying social judgment. We do original research on many topics. Recent topics include:
- how people's information processing styles affect their psychological well-being
- how people decide how much they trust another person
- how people become mentally transported and persuaded by narratives
- when people will accept apologies and be willing to forgive
- when people will correct their judgments for bias
- how people form first impressions of another person
- how people form judgments of groups with more or less social power
- predictors and effects of mindfulness and emotional intelligence
Team members read current research in the field and collaborate on designing and running studies, interpreting results, and writing APA-style reports about our research. We also have published our research.
