Dr. Tice's Research Interests:
For my entire career, I have been interested in issues of identity and the self. Over the years, I have worked on a variety of different aspects of self and identity. My earliest work focused on self-esteem and self-presentation, and I have also published work on self-handicapping, identity crises, self-control & self-regulation, self-concept, effects of social rejection on the self, self-knowledge, emotion and the self, interpersonal aspects of the self, structure of the self, humility, procrastination, self-enhancement, self-protection, executive functions of the self, reflected selves/ the looking glass self, and willpower and agency.
Studies we are currently conducting in the lab and topics of interest include:
- The (so-called) replicability "crisis"
- Life is uncertain, eat dessert first: Uncertainty causes uncontrolled and unemotional eaters to consume more sweets
