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.
