I explore how motivation and processing of social information act to influence the use of stereotypes when judging others. My interest is in gaining a comprehensive view of stereotyping by examining the process from various perspectives. For example, stereotypes can be studied from the perspective of the perceiver (i.e., the person using the stereotype to judge an individual), as well as the target (i.e., the individual belonging to the stereotyped group).
