Department Faculty

Gifford Weary

In 1973, Professor Weary received her B.A. in psychology with highest distinction from the University of Kansas. That same year, she began graduate study at Vanderbilt University in a highly unique social and clinical psychology program. Four years later, upon receipt of her Ph.D., she undertook a year-long clinical internship at Columbia Presbyterian Hospitals. In 1978, Professor Weary began her academic career at Ohio State University. She was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 1983, and in 1989 she was promoted to the rank of Full Professor. Professor Weary served as Chair of the Department of Psychology from 2002 to 2008. She currently holds an appointment as the Interim Dean of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Dr. Weary holds membership in 8 professional organizations. She has been elected to fellow status in the American Psychological Association (APA), the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP), the American Psychological Society (APS), and the American Association for Applied Psychology and Prevention (AAAPP), and the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI). In 1998, she was elected as President of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, the largest organization of social and personality psychologists in the world.

Dr. Weary has served as Associate Editor for Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology and has been a member of the Editorial Boards of Social Psychology Quarterly, Review of Personality and Social Psychology, Contemporary Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, and Psychological Review. She just completed a term as Associate Editor for Psychological Science.

Research

The bulk of Professor Weary's theoretical and empirical work has been devoted largely to articulating the influence of various cognitive and motivational influences on conscious and unconscious social perception processes. Her scholarly contributions fall into three major areas: (1) theoretical and empirical work on the role of motivation in stereotyping and attribution processes; (2) theoretical and empirical work on control motivated social cognition; and (3) the impact of chronic and temporary, optimistic and pessimistic expectancies on conscious and unconscious inferences about another's behaviors. This work has resulted in 6 books and over 90 articles and chapters. In 1984 Weary received the Distinguished Scholar Award from Ohio State University in recognition of her research accomplishments, and in 2000 she was named the OSU Distinguished Lecturer.
