LLOYD SOCIAL DETECTION LAB

OUR FOCUS

We form impressions of others with surprising ease, and with shockingly little information. Others’ faces, bodies, and language all command attention, combining to provide rich impressions of others’ traits, emotional states, motives, and social status. But not all cues are created equal, and similarly, not all people are treated equally. Our lab investigates the determinants and consequences of person perception, with an emphasis on implications for social inequality and discrimination.
