Brian Clark

Brian Clark
Email: clark13

Brian Clark received his B.A. from UNC-Greensboro and his M.A. from Wake Forest University. He studies how and why people attribute hypocrisy as an explanation of others' behavior, or what makes people call other people hypocrites. One important direction of this research is to investigate the social function of hypocrisy attribution, which may be rooted in a need to know who can and cannot be trusted and may be supported by general cognitive mechanisms underlying prediction of future events. He is also working on measuring moral and discriminatory attitudes about cigarette smoking and smokers, free will beliefs about smokers’ control over smoking, and attitudes about anti-smoking policies.
