    An approach to evaluating the therapeutic misconception
    with S. Y. Kim, L. Schrock, R. M. Wilson, S. A. Frank, R. G. Holloway, and K. Kieburtz
    IRB: Ethics & Human Research 31 (5): 7-14. 2008.
    Subjects enrolled in studies testing high risk interventions for incurable or progressive brain diseases may be vulnerable to deficiencies in informed consent, such as the therapeutic misconception. However, the definition and measurement of the therapeutic misconception is a subject of continuing debate. Our qualitative pilot study of persons enrolled in a phase I trial of gene transfer for Parkinson disease suggests potential avenues for both measuring and preventing the therapeutic misconcept…Read more

    Ethics and the Architecture of Choice for Home and Hospital Birth
    with E. Bogdan-Lovis
    Journal of Clinical Ethics 24 (3): 192-197. 2013.
    In this issue of The Journal of Clinical Ethics, we offer a variety of perspectives on the moral and medical responsibilities of professionals with regard to a woman’s choice of where she will birth her baby. The articles in this special issue focus on place of birth, but they have larger resonance for clinicians whose decisions about providing the best possible care require them to sort through evidence, consider their own possible biases and the limitations of their training, and balance the w…Read more

    Moral Science: Ethical Argument and the Production of Knowledge about Place of Birth
    with Y. Paruchuri, K. Lorenz, and S. Vedam
    Journal of Clinical Ethics 24 (3): 225-238. 2013.
    Ethical arguments about caregiver responsibility and the limits of client autonomy rely on best evidence about the risks and benefits of medical interventions. But when the evidence is unclear, or when the peer-reviewed literature presents conflicting accounts of the evidence, how are clinicians and their clients to recommend or decide the best course of action? Conflicting evidence about the outcomes of home and hospital birth in the peerreviewed literature offers an opportunity to explore this…Read more

    Three Nightmare Traits in Leaders
    Frontiers in Psychology 9 319902. 2018.
    This review offers an integration of dark leadership styles with dark personality traits. The core of dark leadership consists of Three Nightmare Traits (TNT)—leader dishonesty, leader disagreeableness, and leader carelessness—that are conceptualized as contextualized personality traits aligned with respectively (low) honesty-humility, (low) agreeableness, and (low) conscientiousness. It is argued that the TNT, when combined with high extraversion and low emotionality, can have serious (‘explosi…Read more

    To uncover the main dimensions of sport personality traits, a lexical study was conducted. In the first two phases, 321 adjectives denoting the way somebody practices sports were selected. In the third phase, 555 respondents self-rated the adjectives. Congruence analyses provided evidence of six factors, five of which are sport personality trait factors plus one physical individual difference factor. Marker scales from the sport personality trait factors show convergent correlations with the gen…Read more

    Compensation Preferences: The Role of Personality and Values
    with Amanda M. Julian and Onno Wijngaard
    Frontiers in Psychology 12. 2021.
    The present study investigated relations between personality and values on the one hand and compensation preferences on the other. We hypothesized that HEXACO Honesty-Humility and self-transcendence versus self-enhancement values predict preference for higher relative compensation level and that HEXACO Openness to Experience and openness to change versus conservation values predict preference for compensation variability. Furthermore, we expected perceived utility of money and risk aversion to m…Read more
