Applied CAVE: Assessing Explanatory Style through Content Analysis of Verbatim Explanations

Greg Quinting, PhD

Marty's work on Explanatory Style has been powerful in the lives and practices of many MAPPsters. Once learned we can often hear positive and negative explanatory statements "in the wild" as they roll out of the mouths of others. Of course, this ability to assess the explanatory style of verbatim explanations of events has been used in some of the most interesting research (acceptance speeches for presidential nominations, pro athletes, etc.) Yet, the details of the techniques are usually not part of MAPP. So, join MAPP '07 Greg Quinting whose Capstone used the CAVE technique to explore the banquet acceptance speeches of Nobel Laureates in Chemistry, Physics, and Physiology & Medicine. (http://repository.upenn.edu/mapp_capstone/9/ ) Dave Shearon will also describe an exercise he uses built off the CAVE technique to help teachers learn to assess explanatory style.


Greg’s science and technology background are the foundation for his present interest and work in innovative organizational leadership. Diversions such as screenwriting taught Greg that his passion is in drawing upon recent advances in positive psychology to help build quality of life for scientists in the workplace and to broaden that which he learns through those endeavors to help improve quality of life overall.
