This list is not full, but I try to keep it up to date. Under particular topic you can find a short description of main research questions, and papers submitted or under preparation (if applicable).
My interest focuses on how some processes, typically thought to be reflexive, can be accomplished intuitively.
I have collected some data suggesting, that:
The work I'm doing here with Rafal Muda and many other collaborates focuses on how using foreign tongue chenges our thinking, especially in the moral doimain. We investigate not only the behavioural changes, but also the underlying process
responsible for changes in behaviour. Our submitted paper suggests, that people using foreign tongue are feeling less of moral inclination - which means they care less for other people nad moral problems are seen rather as a problem to be solved than
a dilemma related to the core of the moral self.
Here, together with Przemyslaw Sawicki, we try to show how procrastination and irrational risk-taking decisions can be reduced. We do not support Nudging people, as we strongly believe people are able to overcome imposed defaults and biases.
By creating incongruence in defaults in presented problems (e.g. priming individuals for future perspective and asking to provide a future equivalent of the immediate gain) we have eliminated the gain-loss difference in discounting, and reduced the sign by direction asymmetry.
We are currently working on following papers on this topic:
