About the Author

Laura King did her undergraduate work at Kenyon College, where, an English

major, she declared a second major, in psychology, during the second semester of her junior year. She

completed her A.B. in English with high honors and distinction and in psychology with distinction

in 1986. Laura then did graduate work at Michigan State University and the University of California,

Davis, receiving her Ph.D. in personality psychology in 1991.

Laura began her career at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, moving to the University of

Missouri, Columbia, in 2001, where she is now a professor. In addition to seminars in the development

of character, social psychology, and personality psychology, she has taught undergraduate lecture

courses in introductory psychology, introduction to personality psychology, and social psychology. At

SMU, she received six different teaching awards, including the “M” award for “sustained excellence”

in 1999. At the University of Missouri, she received the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Research

and Creative Activity in 2004.

Her research, which has been funded by the National Institutes for Mental Health, has focused

on a variety of topics relevant to the question of what it is that makes for a good life. She has studied

goals, life stories, happiness, well-being, and meaning in life. In general, her work reflects an enduring

interest in studying what is good and healthy in people. In 2001, her research accomplishments were

recognized by a Templeton Prize in positive psychology. Laura’s research (often incollaboration

with undergraduate and graduate students) has been published in the Journal of Personality and

Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Cognition and Emotion, the Journal

of Personality, and other publications . A new paper on the place of regrets in maturity is forthcoming

in the American Psychologist.

Currently editor-in-chief of the Journal of Research in Personality, Laura has also served as

associate editor of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and the Journal of Personality and

Social Psychology, as well as on numerous grant panels. She has edited or co-edited special sections

of the Journal of Personality and the American Psychologist. In “real life,” Laura is an accomplished

cook and enjoys listening to music (mostly jazz vocalists and singer-songwriters), gardening, and

chasing Sam, her 3-year-old son.
