Jonathan Schooler on The Decline Effect

Jonathan Schooler shares the background of his discovery of the phenomena he calls the decline effect (beginner’s luck), and suggests that both a scientific explanation and an X-factor of consciousness are responsible.

Schooler researches consciousness, memory, the relationship between language and thought, problem solving, and decision making. He suggests that when you have an experience that begins with wonderful results, it is an invitation to continue on that path, but does not guarantee that the path will not also have roadblocks.
