  • Hobson, N. M., Schroeder, J., Risen, J. L., Xygalatas, D., & Inzlicht, M. (2017). The psychology of rituals: An integrative review and process-based framework.
    • Short Summary: Rituals primarily regulate (1) social connection, (2) emotions, and (3) performance goal states. We propose a framework linking the top-down and bottom-up mechanisms behind each of these regulatory functions.

  • Schroeder, J., & Fishbach, A. (2015). How to motivate yourself and others? Intended and unintended consequences. Research in Organizational Behavior, 35, 123-141.
    • Short Summary: We overview three common motivational strategies and when they backfire: giving feedback, setting goal targets, and applying incentives.

  • Waytz, A., & Schroeder, J. (2014). Overlooking others: Dehumanization by comission and omission. Testing Psychometrics Metholodology in Applied Psychology, 21, 251-266.
    • Short Summary: We distinguish between two forms of dehumanization, dehumanization by commission (actively and overtly representing others as subhuman) and dehumanization by ommission (more passively overlooking others' mental capacities).

  • Waytz, A., Schroeder, J., & Epley, N. (2014). The lesser minds problem. In Bain, P., Vaes, J., & Leyens, J.P. (Eds.), Humanness and dehumanization (pp. 49-67). New York, NY: Psychology Press.
    • Short Summary: A common psychological bias is assuming others have less active and sophisticated mind than we do. We identify three forms of this Lesser Minds Problem and its consequences.

  • Epley, N., Schroeder, J., & Waytz, A. (2013). Motivated mind perception: Treating pets as people and people as animals. In Gervais, S. (Ed.), Nebraska Symposium on Motivation (Vol. 60, pp 127-152). Springer: New York.
    • Short Summary: We suggest anthropomorphism is guided by two primary motives, the need to explain behavior and the need to connect with others.
