Jason Rentfrow

Reader in Personality & Individual Differences at University Of Cambridge

Jason Rentfrow is Reader in Personality & Individual Differences at the Dept. of Psychology, University of Cambridge.  His research examines the links between basic psychological characteristics and common social psychological processes. To understand such links, he adopts an interactionist perspective that focuses on person-environment interactions and social perception. In his research he examines how personality is expressed in a variety of domains (e.g., music preferences, movie preferences, political ideology, geographic regions), and how impressions of others are formed on the basis of such information. He has published widely in leading science journals, and in top-field journals in social psychology, economics, and geography.
