Do we like through other people’s eyes?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


…Yes, we do!

 

Whereas a large body of work demonstrates the influence of attentional processes on attention, only a few studies investigated the reverse relationship. By examining the role of perceived attention on evaluation, this research project generates new insights about the role of attention-related processes in evaluative learning. Gaze-following and joint attention have been extensively studied in developmental, clinical and cognitive psychology. It is only recently, however, that researchers uncovered its evaluative effects: objects are evaluated more favourably when perceived to be the object of others' attention (Bayliss, Paul, Cannon, & Tipper, 2006), an effect coined "mimetic desire" by René Girard (1987). The examination of this mimetic desire effect and more specifically the social moderators it was the aim of the Ph.D. research project that I conducted under the supervision of Prof. Olivier Corneille.

 

In October, I will start a Belgian American Educational Foundation (B.A.E.F.) Postdoc fellowship at the University of Denver where Prof. Max Weisbuch and I will focus on the interpersonal implications (i.e. when do people with a common desire like or hate each other?) of this effect.
