  Purpose. The purpose of this study is to investigate how people make decisions throughout their day when they are torn between two options about what to do or not do. Some of these decisions may be personal, and some may involve one’s significant other. Task requirements. There are several parts to this study. First, you will officially enroll (you will be asked to provide your name and contact information). Then, you will be directed to an online intake survey (approx. 60 minutes), during which you will be asked to fill out questionnaires about your attitudes and personality and undergo training in recognizing and classifying different types of decisions. Next, we will ask you to complete a mobile phase for seven days. You will get 8 texts per day that include a URL to a daily experience report to complete from your smart phone or computer. These reports only take 2-5 minutes. Finally, we will invite you to complete a 30 minute exit survey after the weekly diary is complete. During the exit survey you will again be asked to fill out questionnaires about your attitudes and personality.
