When we don't get the results we expect or hope for, we can imagine different outcomes, both better and worse. These are known as upward and downward counterfactuals. In the podcast today, I interviewed Dr. Fuschia Sirois from the University of Windsor (Ontario, Canada) who has explored the relation between counterfactuals and procrastination.
I've written about one of Fuschia's studies on my Psychology Today blog. You can find it here at Avoiding What Might Have Been.
