Bo Winegard hails from the small town of Greenville, Michigan. Early in life, he became attracted to film, literature and philosophy. Later in life, he decided that psychology best allowed him to integrate those interests in a scientific discipline. He generally approaches psychological puzzles from an evolutionary perspective, applying Darwin's theory of natural selection to the human mind. Interested in almost everything, he tries nevertheless to focus on status, group differences, individual differences, bias, methods, and political psychology. In his free time, he watches films, a little baseball, walks his dog, and reads history books.
