Personality, Cognitive Performance, and the Role of Mind-wandering

Cognitive Performance Study
In this study, we are investigating the role of personality characteristics and mind-wandering on reasoning and problem-solving.

This study involves two components: the first, online component (around 5 minutes) involves answering questionnaire items relating to personality, and must be completed before the scheduled time for the second component. The second component (around 40 minutes) will take place within the University of Sydney Campus, and involves answering items relating to current state, and completing a reasoning task.

Research sessions will last no more than 1 hour.
