Goal contagion is a social-cognitive approach to understanding how other people’s behavior influences one’s goal pursuit: An observation of goal-directed behavior leads to an automatic inference and activation of the goal before it can be adopted and pursued thereafter by the observer. We conducted a meta-analysis focusing on experimental studies w...

Theoretical Background: Uncertainty with respect to professional prospects, a challenging work-life-balance and health problems as well as moderate to high work satisfaction are associated with being a young scientist. This paper aims to investigate the working conditions, job satisfaction, and strain of early stage researchers working in the field...

Scientific literature predicts a significant rise in energy demand over the next decades. Optimizing energy systems is a key step toward reducing energy related greenhouse gas emissions. Recent studies show that active consumer participation and the integration of modern information and communications technologies are key techniques for successfull...

Zusammenfassung. Unsichere Berufsaussichten, Schwierigkeiten hinsichtlich der Work-Life-Balance und gesundheitliche Probleme werden ebenso wie eine mittlere bis hohe Arbeitszufriedenheit mit der Tätigkeit von Jungwissenschaftler_innen (JuWis) assoziiert. Da zur Situation von JuWis, die im Fach Psychologie in Österreich tätig sind, bisher keine syst...

A pressing task for future energy systems is the design and operation of systems that integrate large shares of renewable energy while improving overall system efficiency. Because buildings consume about 32 % of the total global final energy use, they are of vital importance. In recent years, technical and socio-economic studies, as well as hands-o...

To stay focused on their chosen tasks, people have to inhibit distractions. The underlying attention control skills can improve through reinforcement learning, which can be accelerated by giving feedback. We applied the theory of metacognitive reinforcement learning to develop a training app that gives people optimal feedback on their attention con...

Just observing other people can influence what we do. Under certain conditions, it inspires us to strive for the same goal as the other person. Such goal contagion occurs, because one first automatically infers the goal and then adopts it for oneself. In a series of three experiments (overall N = 840 university students), we investigated personal g...

Goal Contagion is a social-cognitive approach to understand how people are getting inspired by others: an observation of goal-directed behavior leads to an automatic inference of the goal on an implicit level before the goal is adopted and pursued thereafter. Most studies on goal contagion used an experimental design and measured either implicit in...

Helping often occurs in a broader social context. Every day, people observe others who require help, but also others who provide help. Research on goal contagion suggests that observing other people’s goal-directed behavior (like helping) activates the same goal in the observer. Thus, merely observing a prosocial act could inspire people to act on...

Background: Mobile technology gives researchers unimagined opportunities to design new interventions to increase physical activity. Unfortunately, it is still unclear which elements are useful to initiate and maintain behavior change. Objective: In this meta-analysis, we investigated randomized controlled trials of physical activity interventions t...
