Self-interest bias in moral judgment
morality and justice, social judgment and decision making
Together with Professor Wojciszke we argue that moral judgments are biased by the perceiver’s selfishness. It means that persons acting for the perceiver’s interests are evaluated as more moral than persons performing the same actions which are not involving those interests. We assume that the underlying mechanism to involve the perceiver’s affective states serving as a complete mediator of the interest-morality relation.
Psychological effects of the agent versus recipient perspective
social cognition, emotions, self-esteem
This project aims at empirical verification of a new, broad theory of social psychology – the Agent-Recipient Model (ARM). ARM starts with a simple observation that each social interaction involves at least two separate perspectives – a point of view of a person performing an action (the agent perspective) and a point of view of person at whom the action is directed and who experiences it outcomes. The two perspectives are complementary and define each other – there cannot be an agent without a recipient (aggression requires both a perpetrator and a victim, similarly helping requires both a person who gives help and a person who receives the help).
Cognitive and emotional consequences of processing diminutives
language, consumer psychology
Together with my advisor doctor Michal Parzuchowski we showed that, although not aware of it, people appraise objects differently depending on the form with they are described. This effect exerts its influence on satisfaction, monetary value and quality of an object.
