Contrasting Effects: Attention Residue - Deepstash

Contrasting Effects: Attention Residue

Contrasting effects, which compare your mundane task to the more enticing and juicy alternatives, make the task even more excruciating and dull. This Attention Residue happens because our mind keeps wandering to a more interesting task, making the timing of the various tasks at hand something to consider.

Example: Eating a sweet dessert makes your sour vegetable taste even more yuckier.
