Gifford Weary

Dean & Professor

The bulk of Professor Weary's theoretical and empirical work has been devoted largely to articulating the influence of various cognitive and motivational influences on conscious and unconscious social perception processes. Her scholarly contributions fall into three major areas: (1) theoretical and empirical work on the role of motivation in stereotyping and attribution processes; (2) theoretical and empirical work on control motivated social cognition; and (3) the impact of chronic and temporary, optimistic and pessimistic expectancies on conscious and unconscious inferences about another's behaviors.
