Professor Arthur Aron

The Science of Love

February 14, 2012

We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentines Day than to talk about love with a leading expert on the subject, Professor Art Aron. He has not only studied love for the past several decades, but has enjoyed and still enjoys a 40 year marriage with his wife Dr. Elaine Aron. He shares with us some wonderful secrets for creating and sustaining good relationships. We liked him….Enjoy!

Arthur Aron’s research centers on the self-expansion model of motivation and cognition in personal relationships. This model posits that (a) people seek to increase their potential efficacy and (b) one way they seek to do so is through relationships in which they include others in the self (thus seeing themselves as possessing to some extent others’ perspectives, identities, and resources). His major research programs focus on identifying interpersonal closeness as cognitive overlap between self and other and on how self-expansion motivations relate to and can be used to alleviate the typical decline in relationship satisfaction over time. Other current studies examine implications of the self-expansion model for understanding empathy, intergroup prejudice, persuasion, the social basis of logical processing, and how relationship experiences are mapped in the brain.

He is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and serves on the editorial boards of Personal Relationships and the Journal of Personal and Social Relationships. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Society and Principal Investigator on a major National Science Foundation research grant.
