  • At the Laboratory of Personality and Social Psychology (LPSP), we try to integrate personality psychology with social psychology to better understand the development of adolescents and young adults.

  • Creativity and open mindedness (being cool)
  • Academic excellence and scientific rigour (being intelligent)
  • Collaboration and altruism (being nice)
  • Cultural competence and cultural diversity (being multicultural)
  • Quality of life and sense of humour (being fun)

Methodology at the LPSP

  • We mostly use multivariate quantitative analyses (e.g., hierarchical moderated regression, structural equation modeling), psychometric measures (e.g., questionnaires), and self-report data collected with human participants or data observed from cultural products (e.g., songs).
