Convergence: Connecting Levels of Analysis in Psychological Science
 In the past, our field harbored distinct, and often competing, schools of thought that tackled different problems and produced findings that often appeared to diverge. Today, investigators attack shared problems at complementary levels of analysis and produce results that converge. Studies of people in a social world; mental systems of cognition and emotion; and biological mechanisms of the genome and the nervous system interconnect and yield an integrated psychological science. The APS 23rd Annual Convention displays, and celebrates, these advances in our field.

Stereotype threat research has shown that people tend to underperform on challenging tasks when they are positioned in situations placing them at risk for confirming negative in-group stereotypes. Our results indicate, the CSW pretest on Gods’ love did reach statistical evidence ( B= .744, and P= .000).
