Personality and Self-Knowledge Lab (Vazire)

The lab examines the accuracy of people’s perceptions of their own and others’ personality. The 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.

Questions We Address

How well do people know themselves? Do others now things about us that we don’t know about ourselves? Is self-knowledge good? How can self-knowledge be improved? Do people know what makes them happy? Can people change their personality?
