Jason Plaks

Faculty of Arts & Science, Department of Psychology

Professor Jason Plaks is a social/personality psychologist interested in the links between cognition and motivation. Much of the research in his laboratory focuses on laypeople's implicit theories. Current projects investigate implicit theories about: 1. the fixedness/malleability of human traits; 2. human genetic variation; and 3. the ingredients that make an act intentional. His students and him investigate how such beliefs influence basic attribution and stereotyping processes, as well as moral reasoning.
