Personality Change Lab (Bleidorn)

How stable is our personality? When and why does it change? These are the research questions that occupy the thoughts of our lab members. In two lines of research we study both long-term changes in individual differences across the life span and short-term fluctuations in people’s way of dealing with the world – that is, personality dynamics and functioning in people’s daily lives. Our goal is to further integrate these two lines of research because this integrated perspective promises to provide new insights into the underlying processes of personality functioning and development.
