Catching Goals in the Act of Decision Making

Associate Professor of Marketing, Smeal College of Business, The Pennsylvania State University

21 June 2012 - HEC Paris campus Room H007 - From 13:00 to 14:30

Recent research on decision goals concludes that they can be automatically activated by environmental cues and then operate outside of conscious awareness. However, in this paper we propose that people can in fact report their pursuit of such goals. We argue that a critical condition for this to be possible is that individuals report their goals during a decision task when goal activation levels are greatest, not after task completion when activation levels have declined (and may even be suppressed). Three experiments demonstrate that the activation levels of goals altered either by priming, or by the decision task itself, can indeed be reported by individuals. These results suggest that conclusions from past research on automatically activated goals should be re-thought, and that lack of awareness is less a limitation of the cognitive system and more a function of how and when attention is directed during a decision process.
