- Detailed Description: I am a social psychologist interested in social interaction in general and interpersonal perception in particular. My major interests are in the extent to which two perceivers agree in rating a common person's personality, the extent to which perceptions of personality are correct, and the degree to which perceivers know what other persons think of them. In general, I have found that acquaintance plays a much smaller role in person perception than is commonly thought.
I have also worked in the analysis of experimental and non-experimental data. My focus has been primarily on the analysis of dyadic and group data and structural equation, with an emphasis on mediation and moderation analyses.
