My primary research is now in the area of hypercompetitive attitudes. In collaboration with my colleague Rick Ryckman, I am presently carrying out studies dealing with aspects of hypercompetition. These studies involve the examination of the behaviors of individuals who have been identified as being either hypercompetitive or not hypercompetitive when those persons are put in situations where they illegitimately can enhance their own scores or in situations where they illegitimately can lower the scores of their opponents.
