Mission of MERlab

We study and report back on narcissism and other aspects of personality as they move across social, cultural and virtual realities. We strive to do work that is interesting, creative, and generative. We value science that is open and accessible to other researchers and to the public. We ignore disciplinary boundaries as much as possible. If we are not having fun we vow to get real jobs.
