  • Microeconomics
  • Statistics

Gary Charness mainly focuses on Social psychology, Social preferences, Outcome, Microeconomics and Stochastic game. His research in the fields of Ultimatum game and Group membership overlaps with other disciplines such as Social distance and Generosity. His work in Social preferences tackles topics such as Inequity aversion which are related to areas like Reciprocity.

His Outcome research includes themes of Battle of the sexes, Communication source and Social choice theory. His Microeconomics study incorporates themes from Principal–agent problem, Reciprocity, Attribution and Wage. His Stochastic game study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Social comparison theory, Equilibrium selection, Strategic risk and Time trends.

His most cited work include:

  • Understanding Social Preferences with Simple Tests (2635 citations)
  • Promises and partnership (886 citations)
  • Strong Evidence for Gender Differences in Risk Taking (607 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Gary Charness spends much of his time researching Social psychology, Microeconomics, Labour economics, Incentive and Stochastic game. His Social psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Test and Outcome. In the subject of general Microeconomics, his work in Competition and Investment is often linked to Context, Payment and Field, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Gary Charness combines subjects such as First-mover advantage and Actuarial science with his study of Investment. His Labour economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Productivity, Employment contract, Affect and Equity. His study looks at the intersection of Incentive and topics like Collective identity with Rivalry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Social psychology (28.40%)
  • Microeconomics (24.69%)
  • Labour economics (13.89%)

  • Social psychology (28.40%)
  • Incentive (12.96%)
  • Test (8.02%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Social psychology, Incentive, Test, Task and Risk aversion. Social psychology is frequently linked to Rank reversals in decision-making in his study. His work is dedicated to discovering how Incentive, Developmental psychology are connected with Disadvantaged and Salience and other disciplines.

Gary Charness works mostly in the field of Test, limiting it down to topics relating to Dutch Population and, in certain cases, Applied psychology and Actuarial science. His Task study also includes

  • Quality which connect with Operations research, Harm and Nonogram,
  • Experimental economics which intersects with area such as Positive economics, Behavioral economics, Goal orientation and Key. Gary Charness has included themes like Affect and Demographic economics in his Risk aversion study.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Exercise Improves Academic Performance. (46 citations)
  • Experimental methods: When and why contextual instructions are important (42 citations)
  • Confirmation bias with motivated beliefs (34 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Social psychology
  • Microeconomics
  • Statistics

Gary Charness mostly deals with Social psychology, Task, Contrast, Test and Actuarial science. His Social psychology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Signaling game. In Task, Gary Charness works on issues like Experimental economics, which are connected to Function, Test theory, Control and Key.

The concepts of his Contrast study are interwoven with issues in Consistency, Affect, Econometrics and Confirmation bias. His Test research is multidisciplinary, relying on both External validity and Dutch Population.
