Fulbright Commission Scholarship for Our Doctoral Student

We are thrilled to announce that our doctoral student, Karolina Dyduch-Hazar from the Faculty of Psychology in Warsaw, is among twenty recipients of the Fulbright Junior Research Awards for 2020-2021. The prestigious scholarship allows doctoral students to conduct research projects at any accredited higher education institution in the United States, non-profit research institutes or NGOs.

Research Focus

Karolina Dyduch-Hazar is currently pursuing a doctorate in psychology at SWPS University in Warsaw. Thanks to the Fulbright scholarship, she will conduct research at the Social Psychology and Neuroscience Lab of the Virginia Commonwealth University in the United States. The project, conducted under the guidance of Dr. David Chester, an expert in studies on the causes and consequences of aggression, will attempt to answer the following research question “Do collective narcissists reap hedonistic rewards, when they take revenge against their ingroup offenders?”.

“This project combines my two research interests: the ‘sweetness’ of revenge and collective narcissism. During my stay in the United States, I will examine whether revenge activates the reward system in the brain in people diagnosed as group narcissists. Group narcissists are convinced that their own group, most frequently a group defined by nationality, has a privileged, but often unappreciated, status. Group narcissism stands in strong correlation with intergroup aggression. It’s possible that group narcissists are quick to take revenge at the slightest threat of defamation directed towards their own group, because revenge makes them feel good,” explains Karolina.

The research project is a continuation of Karolina’s studies on ‘sweet revenge’. These studies helped Karolina to develop an assessment tool for measuring the level of satisfaction from taking a revenge on one’s enemies. Currently, she focuses on a cross-cultural validation of the tool and on establishing physiological markers of satisfaction from revenge for provocation.
