About the Author:

Joshua Hicks earned his BA from San Francisco State University, MS from Villanova University, and PhD from the University of Missouri. He is currently an assistant professor in the psychology department at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. His research focuses on classic and applied questions related to social and personality psychology. Although the specific question has varied, these lines of investigation are unified by their aim to understand the dynamic interplay of individual differences, situational factors, and cognitive processes in important outcomes such as the experience of meaning in life, positive emotions, psychological well-being, intuition, the link between substance use and behaviour, judgment and decision making processes, and personality development.

Clay Routledge earned his BA from Missouri Southern State University and his MS and PhD from the University of Missouri. He spent two years as an assistant professor in the Centre for Research on Self and Identity at the University of Southampton, UK and is now an assistant professor in the psychology dept at North Dakota State University. He is trained as an experimental social psychologist and his research focuses on the many ways people navigate their social and cultural worlds in order to attain and sustain a sense of meaning, happiness, social connectedness, and self-transcendence.
