Business and Social Psychology & Methods

The research area of Business Psychology and Experimental Methods deals with human experience and behavior in pricing decisions, negotiations and conflicts, as well as with success and failure in self-control. Particularly fascinating in this context are the effects of entry bids and anchor effects, the influence of precise versus round numbers, procedural framing, ego depletion, training of self-control and digital skills, social identity processes, smartphone use, the interplay of posture and power, psycho-physiological measures and meta-analyses.
