Mindfulness and the Sunk Cost Fallacy

The goal of this experiment was to determine if guided meditation and the achievement of mindfulness help resist the sunk cost bias. It was hypothesized that meditation will lead to the resistance of the sunk cost bias. To test the hypothesis, I manipulated the presence of guided meditation in each group and measured their mindfulness as well as their resistance to the sunk cost bias. Results of my study will be discussed in terms of their implications for meditation and decision making in adults
