Social Judgment Research Team (Research Team 11)

In spring of 2014, we are (from L to R): Chinemenma Udokwu, Samantha Towle, Prof. Leigh Ann Vaughn, Patricia Herrmann, Christine Hill, 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 and Many Labs 3: world-wide replication projects in psychology. We are currently one of 88+ institutions that will be participating in what may be the largest replication effort in the history of psychology.
