Social Metacognition

‘Metacognition’ refers to thinking about our own thinking. It has assumed a prominent role in social judgment because our thoughts about our thoughts can magnify, attenuate, or even reverse the impact of primary cognition. Metacognitive thoughts can also produce changes in thought, feeling, and behavior, and thus are critical for a complete understanding of human social behavior.This volume presents and discusses the latest research into metacognition. Specifically, the chapters are organized into four substantive content areas: Attitudes and Decision Making, Self and Identity, Experiential, and Interpersonal. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field, and presents a state-of-the-art view of the many ways in which metacognition has been examined by social psychologists.
