Psychological Assessment and Individual Differences
The research group Psychological Assessment and Individual Differences focuses on inter- and intraindividual variation in thoughts, feelings, and behavior in everyday life. We investigate how people perceive their environments, situations, or major life events, and how this perception impacts their behavior. To this end, we primarily conduct daily diary and experience sampling studies as well as experiments and twin studies (see Current Studies). In addition, we develop and validate measurement instruments to assess psychological characteristics such as study aptitude, personality traits, or motivation. A list of publications can be found on the websites of the respective team members.
