A week of sin

Click for full feature

Welcome to Sin Week on the Research Digest blog. Each day for Seven days (with a break on Sunday, naturally) we’re going to be posting a sinful confession by a psychologist; a new sin fit for the twenty-first century; and an evidence-based way to be good. These online festivities coincide with a feature-length article in the latest issue of The Psychologist on the psychology behind the Seven Deadly Sins.

Here’s the full menu of Seven confessions:

John Sloboda – my Wrath
Alex Haslam and Steve Reicher – our Envy [coming soon]
Mark Griffiths – my Pride [coming soon]
Jon Sutton – my Sloth [coming soon]
Wray Herbert – my Gluttony [coming soon]
Cordelia Fine – my Greed [coming soon]
Jesse Bering – my Lust [coming soon]
