The SAGE Handbook of Personality and Individual Differences: Volume I: The Science of Personality and Individual Differences

James W. Pennebaker is the Regents Centennial Professor of Liberal Arts and Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. His earliest research explored the relationships between people's perceptions of their health and their biological states. Later findings revealed that when people faced traumatic experiences they were much more likely to become sick if they kept the experiences secret than if they spoke about them. This ultimately led to the discovery of expressive writing – a method that found that if people were asked to write about emotional upheavals for as little as 15 minutes a day for 3–4 days, their physical and mental health improved. The writing research helped Pennebaker and his students discover and develop methods to analyze natural language. Pennebaker has published over 300 articles and 10 books and is highly cited in the social and computer sciences.
