Change Psychology: Decisions

recently wrote about building up a resource for Change knowledge here within this very Blog. Finally I got the time to deal with some basic psychological questions of Change. I am looking forward to be able to share those insights on “Change Psychology” with you, here.

There are many tidbits of research that are of interest in decision-making, but not really big enough to . This is a parking place for these.

Closure goals
When people have achieving closure as a goal in itself, such as when they pressed for time, they will cease or significantly reduce analytical thinking about the subject in hand and just seek closure.

When people are motivated to avoid closure, then this goal makes them think harder about the subject as they seek for objections.

Using it
When people dive for closure, they may not be really bought in and you may need later to work hard on sustaining commitment.

When people are objecting, they are thinking and you have their attention, so help them think around objections.
