Social Judgment Research Team (Research Team 11)

In fall of 2015, we are (from L to R) back row: Ximena Leon, Tanner Miller, Prof. Leigh Ann Vaughn, Hayley Paquette, Nicky Liddick, and Genesis Alvarez. Front row: Irene Howard, Emma Hayden, Abby Kane-Gerard, and Kanako Kambe.

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? Research questions for the fall include:

  • How  does the fit between one's goals and ways of pursuing them relate to satisfaction with life and psychological well-being?
  • Is it easier to get along with yourself when you feel like you're getting ahead?
  • Many Labs 2 and Many Labs 3: world-wide replication projects in psychology. What are these projects showing about variation in the reproducibility of research findings? For the Ithacan story about our team's involvement in Many Labs 1, click here.
