Executive Functioning and Forgiveness
Executive function is made up of a collection of higher order cognitive processes, some of which allow an individual to multi-task, think abstractly, and inhibit potentially inappropriate behaviors.
The study was conducted by the Department of Developmental Psychology, Utrecht University, Utrecht, the Netherlands and the findings released in 2009 and presented in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Volume 98, Issue 1, January 2010, Pages 119-131.
Special thanks to Brainna Schuyler for the summary of this study.
And if you're in Red Bank, NJ on January 10th, you can attend a lecture on forgiveness by Michael Posnick. That's where I got this sweet picture.
