UNH Personality Lab

UNH Personality Lab

 
The Personality Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire is supervised by Professor John D. Mayer and is part of the Social-Personality Program of the Department of Psychology. The work of the laboratory focuses on research in personality. Some research is theoretical in nature and other research is empirical. The lab's contemporary view of personality is guided by the personality systems framework. The laboratory's empirical research is focused at present on studies of people-centered intelligences, including primarily personal intelligence and emotional intelligence, including how mental abilities are best conceptualized, measured, and their relationships to life outcomes. Other research concerns studies of lifespace measures and on new empirical methods for testing conceptual models of personality, such as methods for testing conceptual divisions of personality into key structural areas. We also continue our work in the measurement of mood states.
