The current volume makes an important contribution to an underexplored field by integrating research into the effects of stress associated with time constraints on individual judgment. Unique and comprehensive, the book reviews knowledge from a variety of disciplines; critically examines the theories, methodologies, and data of time-pressure research; and suggests priorities for future research.
In 20 contributions, this volume reviews the major approaches developed to consider the effects of time constraints, time pressure, and stress on individual decision making; explores the relevance of a number of theoretical issues and approaches drawn from other areas of psychology and not previously considered in the context of time pressure research; presents examples of contemporary empirical research in the area; critically analyzes relevant methodological issues and considers their implications for the development of future research; and summarizes the current state of understanding of the area and suggests priorities for future research.
