Set "Now" Deadlines to Stop Procrastination for Long-Term Projects
September 18, 2014

Our brain can fool us into not being as productive as we should. To counter that, you should trick your brain. So when you have a long-term project, set a deadline for any task that has to be done in the "now."

Status Anxiety: What the Logos You're Wearing Really Say
September 18, 2014

Women may use luxury goods as a signal to other women, or so suggests a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research. Flaunting such items could be a mate-guarding tactic: the researchers found that other women are less likely to try to “poach” a man who buys his girlfriend expensive outfits and accessories

How Most Restaurants Get Calorie-Informed Dining Wrong
September 15, 2014

The effectiveness of nutrition information presented to diners can be enhanced or derailed by a whole variety of factors. Generally speaking, when calorie information is provided for each item on the menu and lower calorie choices are integrated throughout the menu, diners on the whole order around 15-per-cent fewer calories.

The Importance of Temporal Landmarks
September 12, 2014

A new study in the Journal of Consumer Research, found that people were more likely to meet a six-month deadline if given it in June, with an endpoint in December, than in July and ending in January. The new year serves as a divider: we define the stretch of time before it as similar to the present, and deadlines occurring within it as more urgent; the other side of new year, by contrast, seems like a far-off land.

How To Finally Meet Your Deadlines
September 10, 2014

You'll likely run harder toward a finish line if you can see it in the distance. Deadlines are the same: goals framed to feel more immediate, research shows, are met more often than ones that feel distant -- even when they’re allotted the same amount of time.

When Does Retail Therapy Work?
September 9, 2014

Does retail therapy remind people of their shortcomings, distract them from cognitive tasks, and break down their self-control? A new paper in the Journal of Consumer Research suggests that all of those things happen, unless someone tells the person that he made a smart choice in getting the product he hoped would make him more competent.

Does Responsible Consumption Benefit Companies More Than Consumers?
September 9, 2014

Fair trade coffee and hybrid cars don't solve our environmental and social ills. But they do shift responsibility for big problems to consumers, two researchers argue -- leaving businesses and politicians a free pass.

How Control Impacts What Consumers Expect from Brands
September 8, 2014

Watch enough late-night TV, and you’re likely to see any number of infomercials advertising “miracle”products that can save consumers from the drudgery of a cluttered closet, a sagging figure or a dead-end job. But new research suggests that not all consumers are looking for a hero — instead, they’re seeking a helper that will put in the hard work alongside them to achieve a particular goal.

Here's an Anti-Procrastination Hack Inspired by Harry Potter
September 4, 2014

Just knowing that starting a task is important doesn’t mean you’ll actually do it — life is full of stuff we should do but don’t. How can we actually improve the odds we’ll get going? A new paper in the Journal of Consumer Research offers an interesting suggestion — and it’s got a nice Harry Potter tie-in.

Study: The Secret to Ending Procrastination Is Changing the Way You Think about Deadlines
September 4, 2014

A new study published in the Journal of Consumer Research reveals our natural inclination to categorize time. When we categorize a deadline as being in the present, we’re likely to start working on the goal. When we decide something falls into the “future” category, we simply file it in our “someday” archives and it’s easy for those goals to be neglected.

This Just In: “Responsible Consumption” is Bogus
September 3, 2014

Corporate lobbyists and leaders spend a lot of time and money on encouraging individual consumer “choice” while simultaneously discouraging policy changes or government regulations. When environmental or social problems enter a discussion, such as at the World Economic Forum in Davos, “the economic elite” can usually succeed in shifting responsibility away from themselves, and away from the state, and onto consumers.

Tips for a Happier Retirement
September 3, 2014

Retirees don’t need to spend big bucks on expensive entertainment or extravagant trips to enjoy life.

Expensive Thrills Don't Do Much For Your Happiness
September 3, 2014

If you follow the gospel of “#YOLO,” the trite acronym for “you only live once” used to justify any number of exhilarating risks, you are probably not an older person. That’s because people become more satisfied with unremarkable experiences as they age, making hashtag-inspired thrills less necessary, a recent study shows.

Overworked and overburdened is a recipe for unhappiness. So if you want to be happy, learn how to say no. So then, how should you say it? Say I don’t.

If you go to a site like Facebook or Yelp to gripe about a product or service, make your rant funny.

One-star Yelp reviews are more likely to be rated by other users as funny, and funny negative Amazon reviews are more likely to be rated as useful.
