Our decision-making ability determines our priorities in the future. When the human mind makes a difficult decision, our attitude of thinking also changes. Recent research by researchers from the School of Psychological Sciences of the University of Melbourne, Australia revealed that difficult decisions profoundly affect human preferences. Researchers asked people how much they could spend on different foods to measure their preferences? The researchers then asked them to choose one of their two favorite foods that they liked equally. Shortly after the participants had decided, they were again asked to state their preferences. Researchers found that most participants were willing to spend more for the chosen item rather than the rejected option.
Difficult to decideThis research, published in the General of Neuroscience, was conducted by Dr. Stephen Bod's team of 'Decision Neuroscience Laboratory'. The lead author of the research, Dr. Katharina Voigt, said that it is very difficult for a person to choose one of the two that is equally liked. In the research people chose one of their two favorite snacks. We included only those snacks in the research that people usually buy. Were.
In this research, 22 men and women between 18 and 37 years were involved. Their brain movements were also seen while taking decisions through MRI technology. Researchers found that these people's brain activity preferences associated with setting preferences and making value-based decisions had changed strongly.
Priorities are set beforehandAccording to Dr. Voigt, earlier research says that our decision process is motivated by choices. We tested this alternative hypothesis in research that human preferences develop as an immediate result of decision making. We came to the conclusion that in our minds our preliminaries are preordained as to our decisions. Here researchers also monitored eye movements. Researchers had speculated that these people might delay making decisions while looking for a favorite item. According to Dr. Voigt, there is no doubt that searching for the favorite thing also influences the decision making. Research has revealed that we are more likely to choose the item that we have been seeing for a long time. Research suggests that priorities are indeed dynamic and already change during decision making.
The role of the front of the brain is importantThe rapid formation of preferences is due to the brain's anterior and parietal decision-making and evaluation networks. This part of the brain also serves to store memories in our brain. While making decisions, activity in these areas of the mind leads us to new advantages that ultimately decide our decisions. So whenever you make a decision next time, remember that it can change your future.
