The Better Path Not Taken: Goal-Setting Undermines Opportunity Cost Consideration
We demonstrate that setting goals can decrease the likelihood of switching to dominant outside alternatives. People who set a goal are both less likely to attend to outside alternatives, and are more likely to devalue non-goal alternatives. Setting broader goals dampens this effect but does not fully attenuate it.
