Roy Baumeister of Florida State University will present “How Rejection Affects People."
Roy Baumeister of Florida State University will present “How Rejection Affects People” on Tuesday, November 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in L-122 Carlson School.
This talk covers the past decade’s work in Baumeister’s laboratory on how social rejection affects people. Their behavior changes drastically, including effects on aggression, helping, self-defeating behavior, intelligent performance, self-regulation, and the rational pursuit of enlightened self-interest. Surprisingly, the immediate impact of aggression appears to involve a numbness akin to shock reactions, characterized by a loss of emotion and even of sensitivity to pain.
