Specializations

1. Mental simulation, especially counterfactual thinking and regret, but also nostalgia, autobiographical memory, creativity, narrative transportation, and comparison processes more generally (e.g., counterfactual, social, and temporal comparisons).
2. Prospection, especially psychological momentum, but also forecasting and debiasing.
3. Meaning, especially as it relates to self-motives and responses to self-threats.

Research Interests

First and foremost, Dr. Markman’s research focuses on how people imagine alternative realities. This type of activity is referred to as “counterfactual thinking,” and Dr. Markman’s research has demonstrated how such thinking can exert powerful psychological effects on judgments (e.g., determining causation, influencing people’s beliefs in Free Will and Fate), emotions (e.g., upward “it could have been better” counterfactuals trigger feelings of regret, downward “it could have been worse” counterfactuals elicit feelings of relief and imbue life events with meaning), and behaviors (e.g., upward counterfactuals increase people’s effort and performance, additive “if only it HAD happened” counterfactuals enhance people’s creativity, subtractive “if only it had NOT happened” counterfactuals enhance people’s analytical thinking quality). Dr. Markman’s Reflection and Evaluation Model (REM) of comparative thinking (Markman & McMullen, 2003, 2005) allows for a more rigorous understanding of not only counterfactual thinking but also other forms of mental simulation such as the mixed emotional experience of nostalgia, the transportive effect of written and visual narratives, and how people compare themselves to others.

Secondly, Dr. Markman is interested in how people think about the future. In particular, he has recently begun to study the common perception among individuals that a psychological force called “momentum” exists that can powerfully influence performance. In athletic contexts, the belief in psychological momentum is so pervasive that one can hardly read about or view a sporting event without being exposed to references to how momentum-shifting plays influenced the outcome of a game. Importantly, however, individuals also believe that they can experience momentum while they are designing a computer program, writing a paper, or cleaning an apartment, and political campaigns and celebrity careers are often described as gaining or losing momentum. Dr. Markman’s research (e.g., Briki & Markman, under review; Markman & Guenther, 2007) examines people’s lay theories about momentum and how such theories influence people’s expectations regarding future outcomes for both themselves and others. For instance, his research has discovered how people believe that a) defeating a rival increases momentum perceptions; b) the more momentum accumulates during a prior task, the more residual momentum is left to carry over to a subsequent task; and c) an individual whose momentum is interrupted is expected to have greater difficulty completing a task than is an individual whose steady progress is interrupted.
