Lecturer Comments on Humbleness Study

Jordan LaBouff, a lecturer in UMaine’s psychology department, was quoted in a report on the website Psych Central about a new study that found humble people are more likely than arrogant people to offer a helping hand to someone in need. LaBouff, who was the lead author of the study, said the findings are surprising because in 30 years of research on helping behavior, very few studies have shown any effect of personality variables on helping.
