Come and Find Out "What Your Stuff Says About You"

2010/11 Honors Forum Lecture Series
“Democratization of Information: Power, Promise, and Peril”

Dr. Sam Gosling
What Your Stuff Says About You
Books will be available for purchase and/or signing in the lobby immediately following the lecture.

Wednesday, February 16

7:00 p.m.
Phoenix College, Bulpitt Auditorium


Dr. Sam Gosling is an author and associate professor of psychology at the 
University of Texas at Austin. 
He is a nationally regarded researcher and innovator in the field of personality and social psychology. 
His work has been widely covered in the media, including The New York Times, Psychology Today, NPR, and Good Morning America
and his research is featured in Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink. Gosling is the recipient of the 
American Psychological Association’s Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution. 

Gosling’s recently published book, Snoop: What Your Stuff Says About You, is a 
provocative and witty look 
at how our private spaces —from boardroom to bedroom—reveal our
personalities, whether we know it or not! 
Does what’s on your desk reveal what’s on your mind? Do those pictures 
on your walls tell true tales about you? 
For the last ten years, Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. 
By exploring our private worlds, he explores not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected—and unplanned—ways, 
but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it to others, 
and interpret the world around us.
