Cohen-Chen, S., Brady, G. L., Massaro, S., & van Kleef, G. A. (2022). Meh, whatever: The effects of indifference expressions on cooperation in social conflict. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 123, 1336-1361. doi: 10.1037/pspi0000392.
Conflicts are inherently emotional, yet parties in conflict may choose to explicitly express
indifference. It is unclear, however, whether this represents an effective strategy. Drawing on
emotions as social information (EASI) theory, we examined the interpersonal effects of
indifference expressions in conflict and the processes that underlie these effects. Study 1
indicated that people believe indifference expressions constitute a neutral emotional signal.
Ameri, M. & Kurtzberg, T. R. (2022). The disclosure dilemma: requesting accommodations for chronic pain in job interviews. Journal of Cancer Survivorship: Research and Practice, 16, 152-164. doi: 10.1007/s11764-021-01142-3
This study explores the job interview process for those who need disability-related
accommodations on the job (in particular an “invisible” disability such as many of the long-
term and late effects of cancer and its treatment (eg, pain, fatigue, cognitive problems)), and
explores whether the communication channel or the timing of the disclosure has implications
on the perceived employability of applicants, with the aim of helping to close the
employment gap for this marginalized population.
