This is a past event.

Destaney Sauls, Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences (CLS) Visiting Instructor, will kick off the spring semester forums for Applied Cognitive Science and Human Factors (ACSHF) with her presentation, "Tried and True: The Role of Perceived Loyalty in Friendship Functioning,” from 2-3 p.m. Monday (January 9) in Meese 109 and via Zoom.


Abstract: Research concerning social relationships has often suggested that loyalty is an important feature of a wide variety of relationships - however, this research has also produced inconsistent results regarding the actual impact of loyalty. Generally speaking, much of the research concerning social relationships has focused on romantic relationships, rather than platonic. The current research utilizes the context of a platonic friendship to examine the possibility that perceived loyalty may be more impactful on a relationship than actual loyalty - essentially, how loyal someone is might matter, but what might matter more is how loyal their friend "thinks" they are.
