Joachim I. Krueger is Professor of Psychology at Brown University (Ph.D. University of Oregon, 1988). His research is focused on inductive reasoning in social context. Topics include self-perception, intergroup relations, and game theoretic applications to social behavior. He has edited a volume on The Self in Social Judgment, Psychology Press, 2005 (with M. Alicke and D. Dunning), a festschrift for Robyn Dawes (Rationality and Social Desirability, Psychology Press, 2008), a volume on Social judgment and decision making (2012), and a special issue on rationality in Social Cognition (2009). Krueger believes that most research participants behave rationally in psychological experiments. From time to time, though, he enjoys a healthy dose of incoherence within himself and others. He is the second most interesting man in the world.
Questions of psychological interest pop up everywhere. My approach to blogging is promiscuous, opportunistic, and heterodox. I comment on a variety of issues, ranging from animal behavior to the human experience of guilt and happiness to philosophy of science. I draw on personal experience, recent public events such as movies or media debacles, and of course the peer-reviewed archive of our field.
