Welcome to the homepage of Research on Everyday Thinking. Our main focus is on the basic cognitive mechanisms that shape our everyday cognition about people and things. We focus especially on the following topics:

  • superstitious, magical, paranormal, and supernatural beliefs in their many forms
  • intuition, analytical thinking, dual process theories of cognition, and cognitive inhibition
  • individual differences in reasoning and world view
  • mentalistic and mechanistic cognition (empathizing-systemizing) in everyday life
  • intuitive and scientific construals of basic physical, biological, and psychological phenomena.

To address these issues, we utilize computerized tasks, questionnaires, psychological tests, and brain study methods.
