Decision Making Under Stress

برای مشاهده این محتوا لطفاً ثبت نام کنید یا وارد شوید.

If an important decision looms but your mind is consumed with the fear that you’ve lost your wallet, better save decision making for later. Multiple studies show thatstress significantly affects decision making. What’s more, men and women react differently to stress.

 

A 2009 study by Lighthall et al. from the Unversity of Southern California gives a good overview of how s e x differences manifest. Researchers had 45 subjects play a balloon game that was really a risk-reward evaluation in disguise: the goal was to win the most money by pumping the balloon. But as the balloon’s value grew, so too did the risk of it popping.

 

Males and females performed similarly in unstressed scenarios, but when they played after a stressful situation (having their hands dunked in cold water), results shifted. Males responded to stress by taking more risks (12.5% more balloon pumps), while stressed females took fewer risks (21% fewer pumps).

 

How does the model of risk avoidance transfer to real life? A 2011 study from the University of California Davis looked at one real-life task—investing—with a measurable high-risk activity (trades). Out of 27,000 investors, men made 45% more tradeson their portfolios. The high trading rates led to worse performance, causing male investors to lose more value on their portfolios than female investors.

 

Further studies must be done to to seek out the possible gender biases in other occupations, but the University of Davis research is an interesting start. As scientists learn more about the processes involved in decision making, there are steps you can take to ensure that your decisions are made clearly and calmly.

How do you control yourself to think wisely under these conditions?

It's not all that surprising for me since in my book it's more of an obvious point!

the thing is everybody knows that men and women have different mentalities.

in other word not only men and women , everybody has his/her own attitude and unique way of dealing with situations.

I'm at a loss about why these scientists spend time and money on these clear matters !

:persiana__hahaha:

anyway... out of joking

what I do in these situations is close my eyes and take several deep breathes and think about available thoughtful ways to get rid of troubles

 

somebody correct my mistakes too

:w02:

Anyway, in this situations first I feel confused. I'll try a little to fix things but it usually gets worse.

After a while I'll try to just relax and think about what has happened and what are the possible solutions.

That's it!

Well , It depends on where that country is !

As a matter of fact, remarkable grants would be better to be as a deposit in our saving account and run away to another country !!
