Most Underappreciated

Mark R. Leary

Oxford University Press

Mark R. Leary describes his most underappreciated work: a research on how human behavior and emotions are influenced by an individual's concerns with how he/she is perceived, evaluated, and accepted by others. In his study, Leary tackled impression management, self-presentation, and cognitive dissonance through the lens of dissonance theory. He reflects on the reasons why scholars in the field of social psychology does not seem to appreciate the self-presentational perspective.

Keywords:   Mark R. Leary, human behavior, emotions, impression management, self-presentation, cognitive dissonance, dissonance theory, social psychology
