(WCWF) -- This week on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek will be joined by a psychology professor who is looking into the minds of Packers fans.

Professor Michelle Schoenleber from St. Norbert College will appear on the show.

Schoenleber, who is a fan of the green and gold, will talk about her recent "Green Bay Packers Fan Study."

During the 2015 football season, Schoenleber studied 156 Packers fans from 23 states to find out how unique and not-so unique Packers fans are. The study is being done again this season.

While the research is ongoing, Schoenleber says one preliminary finding is that most Packers fans are more emotionally stable than others.

"What that generally means is we're less prone to unpleasant emotions, things like anger, anxiety, sadness. We just don't experience them in as trait-like a way. And we probably have a little better coping skills," Schoenleber said.

Each week, Robert Hornacek will sit down with a different guest and go beyond the sound bites.
