Tila Pronk

Psychologist Tila Pronk (Tilburg University) specializes in human relationships. Pronk: ”My research mainly focuses on (close) relationships, like romantic relationships and friendships. I am fascinated by the ways people protect and maintain their close relationships in the realm of threat, such as interpersonal conflict, and attractive alternatives. I love to conduct research on the interplay between social cognitive processes and interpersonal processes.”

Love and Attraction: universal rules

This afternoon her lecture will focus on the Universal rules of Love and Attraction: Why do we consider some people more beautiful than others? Which factors contribute to attraction? Why do people fall in love? What do we mean when we talk about the romantic spark? And to which extent are the 'laws of attraction' universal?
