Biography

Dr. David J. Hughes is Lecturer of Organisational Psychology and joined the Alliance Manchester Business School faculty in January 2015. Prior to joining the business school, David was the course director of Business Pscyhology at Coventry University. His PhD research conducted at the University of Manchester concerned the role of personality in consumers’ use of credit (loans, credit cards) and insurance (genuine and fraudulent claims).

His research interests centre on individual differences and can be broken down into three main areas: (i) theory and measurement of individual differences, (ii) the role of individual differences in workplace performance and deviance, and (iii) individual differences in everyday and unethical financial behaviour.

Research Interests

David's research centres on individual differences and can be broken down into three main areas: (i) theory and measurement of individual differences, (ii) the role of individual differences in workplace performance and deviance, and (iii) individual differences in everyday and unethical financial behaviour. His research combines state of the art psychometric tools and statistical methods to address substantive theoretical and applied psychological issues. Below are David's current areas of interest:

  • Personality and employee selection
  • Personality and consumer financial behaviour
  • The theory, structure, and measurement of impulsivity-related traits
  • Dark traits in the workplace
  • Creativity
  • The theory and measurement of affect-related individual differences (emotional intelligence, affect-related personality traits, emotion regulation)
  • Psychology of social media, especially organisational applications (e.g. Linkedin as a recruitment tool)
