Wade C. Rowatt Vitae
Most of the research I conduct occurs at the interface between social psychology, personality psychology, and the psychology of religion. Most of my publications focus on humility, personality and prejudice, deception, or personal relationships.
My current research focuses on the measurement and potential benefits of humility relative to arrogance. My collaborators and I have developed and validated some measures of humility (Rowatt et al., 2006) and are using those measures to study a variety of social behaviors (e.g., helping, forgiveness). Generous funding for this line of research on the positive psychology of humility was provided by the John Templeton Foundation.
