Practical Psychology

I started this website because I wanted to share how psychological research can help people better understand themselves and their social worlds.

My articles summarize peer-reviewed research and are peppered with anecdotes and made-up stories. I also write the odd piece that's more opinion-based or what's called "theory-extension" in academia. Theory extension a delightful part of research where scientists get to develop new ideas and consider how their day-to-day observations could become research studies.

I hope that my articles make you think and entertain you.

Thanks for reading!
