People prone to delusions make rushed decisions, research shows

2 octubre 2014

People who are prone to delusions gather insufficient information before making decisions, according to research. «In our study, the combination of rewards and costs created optimal decision points, allowing us to investigate genuine ‘jumps to conclusions’. Our results confirm that delusion-prone people are less likely to wait for the best moment before making a decision. This indicates that they would rush to make choices in their everyday lives, relating to anything from money or jobs to family and friends, which could lead to less successful outcomes for them,» authors said.
