Our central premise is that people use subjective experiences of difficulty while making a decision as a cue to how much further time and effort to spend.
People generally associate important decisions with difficulty.
Unlike most octopuses, the sand octopus cannot change its color.
Its soft, mostly bare habitat leaves few options for shelter.
We are on the look out for an experienced Web Developer to develop and maintain our web assets.

Join pioneering design researchers from all over the world including: *Sophie Thomas @tmsophie *Richard van der Laken @What Design Can Do *Babitha George @hello QS *Bas Raijmakers @STBY Book now😃ti.to/stby-ltd/good19 Excited to be going to @rightscon ! We have important technological and social choices to make!If the octopus has less energy to expend, it can simply enter the unoccupied burrow of some other marine organism.If it encounters shells or rocks, the octopus will use its arms to dig mechanically.People often get unnecessarily mired in trivial decisions.Four studies support a metacognitive account for this painful phenomenon. Their amazing ability to disappear has allowed them to thrive despite soft bodies and few defenses.But what is an octopus to do when camouflage fails? The southern sand octopus (Octopus kaurna) lives in sand flats around southern Australia and Tasmania.
