    In four studies, we examined people's strategies when deciding between multiple routes of equivalent length in way-finding tasks. The results reveal the important role of continuing behavior when faced with a choice ...

    Disillusionment arises when life experiences strongly discredited positive assumptions or deeply help beliefs. Under these conditions, people feel lost, confused, and disconnected from their social environments. Ultimately, ...

    We propose that boredom, a state associated with a sense of meaninglessness, leads to a psychological search for meaning in life, which in turn elevates affirmation of heroes. This hypothesis builds on the notion that ...

    We investigated when and how life salience boosts adherence to worldviews. It was hypothesized that, similar to thoughts of mortality, thoughts about a meaningful existence increase adherence to worldviews. Study 1a, 1b, ...

    Theories of boredom assert that boredom is a product of situational meaninglessness. We conducted two studies to test if the perceived meaningfulness of a situation is associated with state boredom, above and beyond sadness, ...
  • van Tilburg, Wijnand A.P.; Igou, Eric Raymond; Maher, Paul J.; Lennon, Joseph (Elsevier, 2019)
