Michal Parzuchowski

I am a social psychologist working as an Assistant Professor at Sopot Social Cognition Lab in SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Sopot, Poland. I’ve worked also as postdoc at Psycholinguistique & Psychologie Sociale Appliquée team at the University of Fribourg (thanks to funding).

In my studies I want to find out how and why we integrate bodily induced concrete experiences into abstract concepts/metaphors. What we try to show is that bodily sensations can increase the accessibility of thought content and the processes they typically co-occur with. My work centers around how people make use of that kind of modal information. My research tackles hypotheses that bodily experience (related to abstract metaphors) influences both perceptions of others and one’s own actions.
Other topics include person perception (agency vs. communion) and moral psychology.
