Michael W. Morris
Michael Morris a professor in Columbia Business School. He works primarily in three areas: cultural influences on social behavior and action, social psychological factors in conflict resolution, and social judgment and decision making.
His current research:
Are people's ways of handling conflicts shaped by their culture? His laboratory studies such cultural influences from a dynamic constructivist approach, using the tools of social and cognitive psychology as well as network analysis. Their methods include laboratory experiments, surveys of various types, and content analysis of archival data.
An axiom of this approach is that cultural patterns are dynamic rather than constant. He investigates conditions, such as stress or time pressure, that amplify people's reliance on cultural habits. Likewise, they study personality or motivational orientation that foster adherence to cultural norms.
This approach has also enabled them to model the behavior of bicultural individuals who have internalized more than one set of cultural norms.
