Tucker JonesDescription of Research

Generally speaking, my research focuses on exploring the various factors that are associated with emotional and behavioral responses to others.  Recent studies have examined (a) individual differences associated with emotional and behavioral responses to ambiguous social situations in which rejection might be inferred, (b) antisocial and prosocial teasing in children, and (c) individuals' reactions to children with various undesirable characteristics.
