Human behavior in a social context

The research focus on human behavior in a social context and the underlying individual differences is a legacy from the founder of psychological research in Groningen Gerard Heymans. He started the first psychological laboratory in the Netherlands in 1892 in Groningen. Heymans was also ahead of his time by developing a three-dimensional model of personality, that has been very influential, and the value of which has recently been acknowledged more and more. The research within the theme and the Institute is conducted within seven research programs.
