Social Judgment Research Team (Research Team 11)
In fall of 2013, we are (from L to R): top row: Chinny Udokwu, Eileen Grandel, Patricia Herrmann, Prof. Leigh Ann Vaughn, Chris Hill, Brittany Carey, and Shasta Savage; bottom row: Samantha Towle, Katrina Vega, and Kailyn Mooney
In this research team we spend three semesters together taking a social-personality psychological approach to studying how people function. For example, what helps people be more comfortable with themselves and with others? What could affect the reproducibility of research findings, and how could replication of research be important to the functioning of psychology as a field? Projects for the fall will likely be about:
- What can cause people to feel they can be their "true selves" - and how might this affect their psychological well-being?
- What can cause people to base their judgments of themselves or others on intuition?
- Many Labs 2: a world-wide replication project in psychology. We are currently one of 50+ institutions that will be participating in what may be the largest replication effort in the history of psychology.
