I know Jim has left a lasting impact on the field of social psych through his groundbreaking work on SDT and SDO. Everyone and they mama use SDO in their work and SDT explains so much of the world. But that is not the Jim I remember, and that’s not the Jim that lives in my heart.
The Jim I knew was perfectly complicated. He mentored and cheered me on much more than he advised me. He sucked at tipping during lab dinners but he always celebrated our wins. He didn’t always know what to do with my queerness but he came to my wedding and stayed the whole time
We fought like old ninnies about gendered prejudice and he was so stubborn in his way of thinking. In fact, the 2nd convo I had was us discussing TGP and him iconically telling me “It’s an empirical question”. I am devastated we are not going to write the redux to TGP together.
The 1st convo was during our first grad interview where he picked me up from Franz Hall. The first thing he said to me was “What will it take to get you away from UCLA?” He only thought he had competition with Jenn as my advisor and I remember thinking “This is Jim Sidanius?”
He asked about my life and every answer filled him with satisfaction. I later found out that Jim was the source of diversity at Harvard psych. He didn’t mind the lack of an interview wknd bc that meant he got to bring in the students he wanted. My year he recruited 3 black folk.
Jim became my family. He was a grandfatherly figure, more so bc he looks like my granddad. They both have strong noses, beautiful brown skin, a ring of blue in their eyes, the widest smile, and the best deep chuckle. He chuckled a lot around us. I think we brought him joy.
He never minded letting me run things the way I wanted to. He didn’t always drink but would always taste my cocktails and my food choices. He trusted my judgement and trusted me. I am VERY outspoken and I want to believe Jim respected that about me.
