State and Trait Accuracy Model (STAM): I am working with Judy Hall at Northeastern University and Jeremy Biesanz at the University of British Columbia to propose and test a new model of accuracy. STAM proposes that judgments of traits are based on judgments of affect, and therefore that more accurate judgments of affect will lead to more accurate judgments of personality. We have received funding from the National Science Foundation to support this research.
Idaho Test of Accurate Person Perception (ITAPP): This is a new project to create a standardized test of accuracy of several types of judgments of persons, including traits, personal values, and emotion.
