Sam Gosling    

Psychologist of human perception, author and professor

Sam Gosling is an author and professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. He is a nationally regarded researcher and innovator in the field of personality and social psychology. His work has been widely covered in the media, including The New York Times, Psychology Today, NPR, and "Good Morning America," and his research is featured in Malcolm Gladwell's "Blink." Gosling is the recipient of the American Psychological Association's Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution.

Gosling's book, "Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You," is a provocative and witty look at how our private spaces from boardroom to bedroom reveal our personalities, whether we know it or not! Does what's on your desk reveal what's on your mind? Do those pictures on your walls tell true tales about you? For the last ten years Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. By exploring our private worlds, he explores not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected and unplanned ways, but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it to others, and interpret the world around us.
