Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Personal und Organisation, Note: 1,7, Hochschule Bochum, Veranstaltung: Internationale Personalfuhrung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der heutigen Zeit lernen wir bereits in der Schule aber auch in den weiteren Lebensabschnitten wahrend des Studiums oder im Berufsalltag, dass wir rationale Entscheidungen betrachten und auf diese vertrauen mussen. Die Arbeit zeigt auf, dass trotz dieses Denkens die meisten Entscheidungen intuitiv auf einer geringen Anzahl von Informationen getroffen werden. Der empirische Teil untersucht inwieweit unsere Intuition vor rationalen Entscheidungen genutzt wird, insbesondere bei Beschaftigten mit Kundenkontakt."

In dieser Studie wird der Attentional Blink repliziert. 104 Versuchspersonen sollten in einer schnellen aufeinanderfolgenden visuellen Präsentation von Buchstaben einen teilweise definierten Buchstaben (Target) identifizieren und dann die An- oder Abwesenheit eines vollständig definierten Buchstaben (Probe) bestimmen. Die Psychologiestudenten führten die Versuchsreihe in Räumen der Universität durch, in denen mehrere Computer zur Verfügung standen. Die übrigen Teilnehmer nahmen einzeln in ruhiger, häuslicher Umgebung an der Versuchsreihe teil. Insgesamt gab es zehn Versuchsleiter. Das Experiment wurde zur Überprüfung der Deutlichkeit der Instruktionen in Probedurchgängen mit freiwilligen Testpersonen, die hinterher nicht mehr am fertigen Experiment teilnahmen, getestet. Zusätzlich konnten durch zahlreiche Selbstversuche auch technische Probleme ausgeschlossen werden. Das Experiment wurde aus ökonomischen Gründen zusammen mit drei anderen Experimenten zu einer Versuchsreihe zusammengefügt. Die Durchführung der Untersuchung erfolgte vollständig computergestützt. Wie bei der Untersuchung von Raymond et al. (1992) wurde ein experimentelles Versuchsdesign mit Messwiederholungen benutzt. Jede Versuchsperson wurde auf jeder Position des Probes getestet.

As a young man in Glasgow’s underworld, Ian ‘Blink’ MacDonald fought, robbed and slashed his way to the top, developing a taste for the high life along the way. His notoriety earned him an offer of work from Scotland’s most feared gangster, Arthur Thompson, but MacDonald had other plans: to finance a new life in Spain with the multimillion-pound proceeds of a high-risk armed bank robbery. But the job went badly wrong, and MacDonald was jailed for 16 years. In prison, he met scores of high-profile inmates, including torture-gang boss Eddie Richardson, high-society serial killer Archie Hall, notorious lifer Charles Bronson and Ronnie O’Sullivan senior, father of the snooker star. On his release, MacDonald became a magnet for trouble, enjoying a hedonistic, drug-fuelled lifestyle and finding himself drawn into conflict with police, gangsters and businessmen. Rearrested several times, he was the target of more than one terrifying murder attempt. In Blink, MacDonald provides an eye-opening account of his highly eventful journey through life in Glasgow’s brutal gangland.
