Ep. 095

Jorina von Zimmermann graduated from University College London (UCL) with a Master degree in Social Cognition in 2012. A year later she started her PhD in the department of Experimental Psychology at UCL to investigate group behaviour. Her main research question is how a group environment influences individual behaviour and cognition and she is interested in the emergence, maintenance, and characteristics of a group mind. In her current studies, Jorina explores the positive and negative effects of behavioural synchrony in groups.

We discuss topics such as:

Is there personality traits that make someone easier to influence?

How does propaganda work against the masses?

Can this be applied to Social Engineering?

Check her out at either Eye Think Lab or the UCL Experimental Psychology Center.
