Seeking students to examine the thoughts people have about their thoughts (i.e., metacognition) with specific projects examining the origins and consequences of confidence, people's attributions, and perspectives people take on their own thoughts.
We examine the thoughts people have about their thoughts (i.e., metacognition). Specific projects examine the origins and consequences of confidence, people's attributions about where these thoughts come from, and the perspective that people take on their own thoughts. These projects examine domains related to the self, attitudes and persuasion, mindfulness, and emotion regulation.
The specific outcomes of this project will be identified by the faculty mentor at the beginning of your collaboration.
