MEDITATION AND DECISION

Measuring the effect of mindfulness meditation on the quality of decision making

In modern societies, our attention is frequently distracted by a multitude of stimuli that reduce our ability to concentrate and cause stress. These attention defects can reduce the quality of decisions. The practice of meditation is likely to help individuals to improve the average quality of their decisions thanks to a stable emotional state, a clear and alert mind, and a deeper presence. The project involves implementing an experimental decision-making protocol to measure whether after training, managers and executives make fewer errors in reasoning, use fewer or better heuristics, increase patience and decrease impulsivity. The expected benefit for researchers is to access areas of experimentation in companies. The expected benefit for the partner is to have access to tools for measurement of the impact of his training.
