    Research Interests

    Our research examines people's self-knowledge of their own personality and behavior. We use a combination of methods including self-reports, informant reports, experience sampling, and naturalistic behavior observation using the Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR). Our goal is to measure how people differ from one another not just at the trait level but also in their patterns of fluctuations across different roles and situations. Then, we hope to examine how much insight people have about their own and close others' traits and patterns.  We are also interested in how personality and social relationships (e.g., friendship) influence wellbeing.  Finally, we are interested in research methods, and factors that affect the vailidty and replicability of psychological research
