I’m interested in how people’s beliefs about themselves can interfere with their goals, and how simple writing interventions can alter these maladaptive trajectories. Specifically, I look at how abstractly framing a past success can help people with negative self-views draw positive conclusions about their abilities. In other lines of work, I examine what factors bias people’s mental representations of their own faces, as well as how certain attitudes or preferences help people define who they are.
