  1. Very nice. Like the move to dynamic and its potential contribution to decreased attention to rejection vs increased attention to acceptance.
    I also like the use of Johnson-Neyman plots!
    BTW, some research on attentional bias to attractive alternatives suggests that it predicts subsequent infidelity and breakup–especially for those low in self control.


  2. Very promising results! Curious how long these effects tend to last, and if they might last longer with the dynamic version? And once again, very nice plots!


  3. I especially like the findings for acceptance bias. Most past research has found effects primarily for lowering rejection bias, but other researchers (e.g., Mogg) are highlighting the importance of substituting a rewarding positive bias. This dynamic version of the task may do this better than the static version because it may be more rewarding I imagine. Good stuff!


  4. Nice work Remi! Very cool idea to have dynamic training task-I agree it should be more impactful than static task as more life-like. Will you test them directly?
