Presentation topic

Well known in judgment and decision making literature, the distinction between the two systems of cognitive processes can also be applied to the field of personality. While System 2 (i.e., explicit, conscious processes) research dominates the field, some recent developments in implicit social cognition have provided us with potentially valuable tools for measurement of implicit, automatic personality processes (i.e., System 1). During his lecture, he will present two paradigms for implicit personality measurement (conditional reasoning tests and the Implicit Association Tests for self-concept measurement) and describe the research programme that tested their validities in predicting various outcomes.
