Is It More Rational to Say “No”?: How Choosing Versus Rejecting Alternatives Affects Information Processing

We propose that task type (choice versus rejection) can shift decision-making from the heuristic-based System-1 processing (in choice), to the deliberative System-2 processing (in rejection). Seven experiments replicate results from prior studies in the choice task and then show how these results change when a rejection task is used.
