Quiet Ego, Self-Identity, and Well-Being Research Group

We study a set of characteristics called “quiet ego” that are known to be associated with a more compassionate sense of self.  Past research has shown that these characteristics are measureable and the cultivation of these characteristics may have implications for health and well-being. Ongoing projects include examining the impact of the Quiet Ego Contemplation for improving health behavior and outcomes, self-regulatory efforts, and coping with stress.
