Realizing complex delayed intentions in young and old adults: The role of planning aids


Kliegel, Matthias; Martin, Mike; McDaniel, Mark A; Einstein, Gilles O; Moor, Caroline (2007). Realizing complex delayed intentions in young and old adults: The role of planning aids. Memory & Cognition, 35(7):1735-1746.

Abstract

Although it has been suggested that the delayed realization of intended actions should benefit from appropriate intention planning, empirical evidence on this issue is scarce. In three experiments, we examined whether and which planning aids provided in the intention formation phase affect delayed intention realization in young and old adults. One finding was that intention planning directly affected delayed intention realization: instructing participants to include the cue for appropriate intention initiation in their plans benefited delayed performance. Another finding was that older adults' performance was improved when they were guided in structuring their plan in combination with guidance in implementing this plan after a delay. In sum, the results point to the importance of plan-related factors for understanding the delayed realization of intended actions
