Broadly speaking, Bridget Lynch's interests are in self-enhancement, self-esteem, and well-being. Bridget is interested in what people do to maintain positive self-images and feel good about themselves and their relationships. Right now she is working on a project investigating how individuals use their friends to spread positive information about themselves. She is also working on projects investigating the downstream effects of "flow" and goal pursuit in the context of relationships (romantic and friendship).
