OSU Mansfield Professor Lead Author For Study On Tipping Points

12 Dec , 2018  

You probably overestimate just how far someone can push you before you reach your tipping point, new research suggests.

No, we’re not talking about your emotional tipping point.

A new study examined how far people thought they could lean over backwards before they would actually fall to the ground. When study participants were put into a device that slowly and safely tilted them, most thought they reached their tipping point when they were tilted somewhere near 14 degrees from vertical (straight up and down). But research suggests the actual tipping point for most people is nearer to 8 or 9 degrees, said Dennis Shaffer, lead author of the study and associate professor of psychology at The Ohio State University at Mansfield.

Town-Gown, Mansfield Style

16 Oct , 2018  

Because the campus of The Ohio State University at Mansfield lies in a suburban setting outside of its namesake city, the concept of “town-gown” might not immediately come to mind.

That closeness can help to forge a symbiotic relationship, not only for students, but for cities and colleges working together on issues such as traffic, development, and more. More…
