Project Description

Intention is the most proximal determinant of future behaviour in many models of health behaviour. However, there is a less-than-perfect relationship between people’s intention and their behaviour – the “intention-behaviour gap”. This project will examine the extent to which planning moderates intention-behaviour relations for various health-related behaviours (e.g., exercise, fruit and vegetable intake). Additional studies will examine the role of experimental measures of individual differences in planning ability (e.g., Tower of Hanoi) and working memory capacity with the aim of developing online planning measures that can used in conjunction self-report measures of intentions and behaviour.
