When Why=Short Duration and How=Long Duration: the Moderating Role of Task Complexity
Research has shown that when individuals estimate the time it would take to complete a task, thinking in a ‘why’ vs. ‘how’ mindset leads to longer estimates. We show that when a task is complex, the reverse occurs, that is ‘how’ vs. ‘why’ thinkers perceive task duration to be longer.
