Support, Avoidance, and Sabotage: How Others Help and Hurt Us in Shared Goal Pursuit
Abstract: How we pursue our goals changes drastically from one stage to another during the journey. And in every stage, people around us can influence how we perceive, manage, and stay engaged with our goals. In this work, I will explore collaborative, competitive (i.e., sabotage), and avoidance behaviors, documenting how social others motivate and demotivate us from the beginning to the end during the course of goal pursuit, as well as exploring the underlying drivers. I’ll leverage datasets collected from the field and in the lab, with a variety of behaviors documented such as choices, daily walking, head turns, and eye movements.
