Social psychologist Michael Inzlicht launched his academic career on the study of “ego depletion.” His research suggested it was real. Then came doubts.
Back in 1995, Claude Steele published a study that showed that negative stereotypes could have a detrimental effect on students' academic performance. But the big surprise was that he could make that effect disappear with just a few simple changes in language. In this podcast, Radiolab revisits the topic of stereotype threat in light of the roil of replications and self-examination in the field of social psychology. Radioab speaks to Michael Inzlicht about his own experiences with the topic, including why he now has doubts about the robustness of the phenomenon.
Outside Magazine discusses some of the latest research from the lab, specifically focusing on the work by former lab members, Nicholas Hobson and Devin Bonk, and Michael Inzlicht. The Outside Magazine article details how pre-performance rituals can soothe the anxiety of poor performance.
