Miranda M. McIntyre, Ph.D.


- Research -


Miranda's primary research focus is on Person Orientation and Thing Orientation. These individual difference factors reflect interest in different aspects of individuals' environments. Person-oriented individuals orient toward the social aspects of their environment (i.e., the people around them), whereas thing-oriented individuals orient toward the physical aspects of their environment (i.e., the objects around them). Previous work has found that PO and TO are highly related to interests in majors and careers and has important implications for STEM fields. Miranda's current projects examine the cognitive, social, and behavioral consequences of these orientations.
