PASΨLAB (pronounced "pazzeelab") focuses primarily on the study of personality and individual differences--most notably, narcissistic personality. With regard to narcissism, our research attempts to answer the following questions:

  • What is narcissism and how should narcissism be measured?

  • Who is more or less narcissistic?

  • What are the costs and benefits of narcissism to the self and others?

  • How and why do narcissists think and act like they do?

Our lab also conducts research on topics that are related to narcissism, such as psychopathy, self-esteem, and empathy. Occasionally, when we're feeling especially brave or foolish, we conduct studies on totally unrelated topics.
