Harvard professor Francesca Gino, as well as Alison Wood Brooks & Maurice E. Schweitzer from University of Pennsylvania, conducted research into how anxiety affects decision-making.
The team studied college students, putting them in anxiety inducing situations. They concluded that when students felt stressed, they were more likely to “take advice they were given and had a reduced ability to judge between good and bad advice.”
Professor Gino’s Tips:
Take a breather.
Keep your eye on the goal, not the details.
