How do emotions and personality type affect performance on an attention task?

Started Apr. 6, 2023

Abstract or project description

I plan to create a survey to collect data from a population of my peers. This survey will measure Meyers-Briggs personality type along with data from the completion of two attention focused tasks after. I will then use this data to run correlations between the four different factors of personality type as well as their severity. I aim to zone in on how the differences in personality may cause one type to be more or less efficient at either type of task. For example if a person who is introverted rather than extroverted might display a greater level of focus on the attention task. This information can then be used to uncover more findings on the topic of emotion-cognition.

The effects of unconscious thought on effective decision-making.

Started Mar. 26, 2022

Abstract or project description

With the rise of research studying the unconscious mind, it is imperative to apply computational models to this complex system. Both the conscious and unconscious mind are at play in decision making, while the unconscious mind remains less clearly understood. This study plans to use open-sourced data to explore the effects of unconscious decision-making through a regression model. We hypothesize that, given time to unconsciously process information, individuals will be largely more effective at decision-making. This paper will be important in adding to the literature and studies behind both conscious and unconscious thought.
