Article of the Week
Decision-Making Is More Stressful When You're Uncertain, But It Can Also Lead To Better Performance 
Researchers at the University College London explored how uncertainty affects making choices. They found that participants were less stressed when they believed no pain or certain pain would come from a decision compared to when they were unsure about the result of their choice. However, they also found that participants whose stress levels increased the most whenever conditions were uncertain proved themselves best at predicting outcomes.
