Marie-Pierre Fayant Assistant Professor at Paris Descartes University
My research deals with social cognition and self-regulation.
In one line of reserach, I study threatening situations like social comparisons with better-off (Muller & Fayant, 2010) or ostracism (Fayant, Muller, Hartgerink, & Lantian, 2014). I am especially interested by the attentional consequences of such threat (see Muller & Fayant, 2010).
In a second line of research, I study the effect of approach/avoidance on the association between the self and others. For instance, we showed that approaching and avoiding the comparison information moderates its impact on self-evaluation (Fayant, Muller, Nurra, Alexopoulos, & Palluel-Germain, 2011).
