About the Authors
  • We are constantly forming impressions about those around us. Social interaction depends on our understanding of interpersonal behavior - assessing one another's personality, emotions, thoughts and feelings, attitudes, deceptiveness, group memberships, and other personal characteristics through facial expressions, body language, voice and spoken language. But how accurate are our impressions and when does such accuracy matter? How is accuracy achieved and are some of us more successful at achieving it than others? This comprehensive overview presents cutting-edge research on this fast-expanding field and will be essential reading for anyone interested in the psychology of interpersonal perception. A wide range of experts in the field explore topics including age and gender effects, psychopathology, culture and ethnicity, workplaces and leadership, clinicians' skills, empathy, meta-perception, and training people to be more accurate in their perceptions of others.

    • The first book to assemble the literature on this newly emerging field
    • Written by expert researchers and presents the most up-to-date findings
    • Will appeal to a wide range of readers, from researchers and students to anyone interested in social perceptions

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The Social Psychology of Perceiving Others Accurately is an important and timely volume that features an outstanding cast of contributors that have extensive research programs in the areas of interpersonal perception and accuracy. Bringing together research and approaches in the study of accurate interpersonal perception across diverse domains that have too often worked in comparative isolation, this book highlights the resurgence of interest and research in accuracy and will be an essential resource for researchers and students alike."
    Jeremy Biesanz, University of British Columbia

    "This book offers an authoritative, well-written and comprehensive overview of the state of the art in the study of accuracy in interpersonal judgment. Its wide-ranging chapters provide historical perspective as well as valuable suggestions for the future. The book is a must-have for any researcher or student interested in whether, when and how people are able to accurately discern what each other is like."
    David Funder, University of California, Riverside

    "This book nicely summarizes theoretically important findings in the study of interpersonal accuracy in a wide range of areas: social, developmental, personality, clinical cultural, and industrial psychology, as well as communication science, family studies, and organizational behavior. The book should be of interest not only to accuracy researchers, but also to those who desire to understand interpersonal phenomena."
    David A. Kenny, University of Connecticut

    "Publication of this volume marks the arrival of a new conception of the research domain of interpersonal accuracy. Never before have so many scholarly strands been brought together in one place to begin a remarkable integration of the many faces and voices of interpersonal accuracy."
    Robert Rosenthal, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside
