Edgar Allan Lind, Jr.

My main areas of research interest include:

The Social Psychology of Justice

I construct theory and conduct research on what people view as fair in their everyday lives. Much of my work has focused on judgments of procedural justice and on the causes and consequences of feeling unfairly treated.


I study the social psychology of leadership, especially the social and individual identity dynamics of organization and influence in groups.

Business Relationships and Work Teams

I am one of several faculty members at the Fuqua School of Business researching the social and psychological dynamics of interpersonal relationships in organizations. A special focus of this work is the development of trust and interdependence in work teams.

Law and Law-Related Behavior

I conduct research on decisions to sue and on reactions to legal authority.

Primary Interests:

  • Applied Social Psychology
  • Culture and Ethnicity
