My main research interests are in intelligence, creativity, wisdom, thinking styles, leadership, ethics, love, jealousy, envy, and hate.  I have taught courses in most of these areas, as well as in cognitive psychology, educational psychology, introductory psychology, lifespan development, ethics, and professional socialization.

My current collaborative research projects with my colleagues are on graduate admissions, medical-school admissions, ethics (two projects), my new triangular theory of creativity, as well as application fo the triangular theory of love to understanding jealousy and envy.  I am particularly interested in research we are doing now on taste in scientific problems.
