his interactions with people. His presence and demeanor delighted all who met him.
Bernie was a dear friend as well as a mentor. Our times together were fille...d with joy, laughter and always...good food. Our tradition of trying restaurants at the city of the APA conference will be carried forward, always with Bernie in mind and heart. Those memories of Bernie as a scholar, a respected colleague and dear friend will be treasured. He will be greatly missed.

Bernie Carducci Remembered
We deeply appreciate Dr. Cadrucci.
Director Dr. Bernardo J. Carducci of The Indiana University Southeast Shyness Research Institute was died on Saturday, 22 September 2018. I respectfully express condolences.
Dr. Carducci gave a lecture by Shyness at The 26th Annual Meetings of Japanese Society of Personalty Psychology.
A collaborative research with Dr. Carducci began with the lecture. One of the collaboration with us and Dr. Carducci was able to publish the following papers.
Sato, E., Matsuda, K., & Carducci, B. J. (2018). A factor analytical investigation of the Japanese translation of the Cheek-Buss Shyness Scale in support of the three-componen...t model of shyness. Personality and Individual Differences, 124, 160-167.
Thank you Bernie. Please rest in peace in heaven.Read more
I am so very sad to hear about this terrible loss of your dear dad. My heart and prayers go out to you. Bernie was always so proud of his daughter and then his son-in-law and granddaughter. I was his editor on an early edition of his Personality text and he always talked to me about his Rozana. Such a proud dad and granddad.
I feel so privileged to have known him and to have worked with him. He was a kind and generous soul who went out of his way for others. When he heard my son played guitar, he got him a guitar shirt. And if he learned you were Italian, he wanted to share his love of his heritage with you even more. Of course, he also lit up a room and always... made you feel welcomed. His passion for life, his family, teaching, and research was always evident. A very special person that I'm honored to have known.
My deepest sympathies and prayers to you and your family.Read more

Words cannot even begin to express my sorrow.
I will say though, he will always be in my heart.
I will always cherish the memories that I am privileged to have of him.
Please remember that you are not alone, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am proud to have researched with you. We have made an appointment with you. We will do our utmost to do the publication of your Japanese translation of "Psychology of Personality: Viewpoints, Research, and Applications". In addition, Shyness Workbook Japanese version already advanced to the first draft. We will disseminate the great research achievements of Dr. Carducci to Japan.
Always full of positive energy
With smiles for everyone
A friend & encourager...
Lessons Live On
My kids ecspecially got to experience someone who always listened and cared about what was happening with them. He guided my son Laren, in regard to his someday becoming a professor. He talked about how proud he was of his daughter who had already become a professor.
My other son Fletcher, Laren and Bernie talked about music. He encouraged them to continue to play the guitar and made Gretsch a part of our lives. He was very proud of his brother Joe in that regard.
My daughter Bailey had discussions with Bernie about psychology, and how the brain works. He influenced her to continue her studies in that dire...ction.
Bernie always loved family. My family, his family, everyone. When talking to him, he made you feel like you were the most important person in the room. What a special gift.
And finally, my sister Kathleen and he were incredible together. They really got each other, and that’s so rare. We will miss you Bernie. Rest In Peace.Read more
