Research Fields

In my research I endorse the idea that information from the social world is processed through the prism of personal meaning (conscious or non-conscious), and that personal meanings are largely affected by personality traits. I therefore aim to understand social phenomenon in interaction with personality traits, and to study personality traits with reference to the social reality in which they are materialized.

 

At the Individual Differences in Social Behavior Lab (IDSBL) we study the following topics:

 

SOCIAL DESIRABILITY: What scales of social desirability measure and what is it that they fail to measure? What are the motivations behind social desirability? What are the real life implications of social desirability? What are the contexts in which a high social desirability score predicts adaptive behavior, and when does social desirability predict maladaptive responses?

SELF-CONTROL & SELF-CONTROL MOTIVE: Self-control is crucial for adaptation. In the Lab, we try to understand the role of one's motive to have more self-control (using a newly-developed self-control motive questionnaire, with state and trait versions) on actual self-control in varying conditions, and more broadly, how the combination of a want (motive) and an ability (actual self-control) affects satisfaction with life, emotion, cognition, and behavior.

PERSONALITY & AFFECT: How personality shapes our affective reactions? How personality (mainly Extraversion and Neuroticism) affects our cognitive construal of reality along axes of positivity and negativity? Is there a typical and a-typical way for these relationships to exist? How changes in circumstances (e.g., happy vs. sad atmosphere) affect personality-cognitive construal relationship?

Uziel, L. (2006). The extraverted and the neurotic glasses are of different colors. Personality and Individual Differences, 41(4), 745-754.

 

SOCIAL FACILITATION: The effect of social presence on behavior. How does having another person observe you affect your feelings, cognitions, and behavior? Social presence is a demanding yet ambiguous interpersonal situation. A meta-analysis showed that the effects of social presence largely depends on the actor's personality (Uziel, 2007). My research aims at understanding how individuals perceive and respond in this basic social context.
