Professor Vazire conducts research on the accuracy of self- and other-perceptions of personality. Her current work examines differences between how people see themselves, how they are seen by others, and how they behave. The overall goal is to understand the limits and function of self-knowledge and how feedback affects self -knowledge and personality. She is also interested in methodological issues involved with measuring behavior, self-reports, and peer reports.
