Thorndike, 1900, p. 481) In particular, Thorndike was suggesting not so much a complete dissociation but rather the notion that subjective feelings of fatigue anticipated actual performance-related decrements. Dodge (1917) reported that feelings of fatigue were not reflections of physical or cognitive fatigue but an inability of the participant to suppress an increasingly imposing desire to attend to stimuli other than those required by the task. Although Muscio (1921a, 1921b) noted that one can feel physically fatigued without actually being fatigued, he also noted, in contrast to Thorndike, that there was a relationship between subjective fatigue and performance effects.

The motivational factors of not intrinsically interesting or enjoyable and lack of knowledge of results/feedback are conceptualized as having the main influences on the amount of effort allocated. The association of intrinsic interest or enjoyability with effort allocated is straightforward. The lack of knowledge of results/feedback, however, is a bit more complex. qxd 5/6/10 12:37 PM Page 33 100 YEARS WITHOUT RESTING 33 task performance (for reviews, see Adams, 1987; Kluger & DeNisi, 1996). Finally, although high stakes is listed under the arousal-related factors, it should also be considered a motivational factor—as the effect of a high-stakes test or task environment will lead to both higher levels of effort allocated to the task and, at the same time, an increasing likelihood of off-task distractions (especially when explicit or implicit performance feedback is negative).

Illustration of performance associated with different strategies in reaction to continuous time on task (partly based on the classifications by Davis, 1946). Cumulative Intellectual Demands Task characteristics that fall under this category are those that are related to the degree of attentional demands on the individual and the extent of these demands over time. TIME ON TASK. The most prominent variable associated with studies of cognitive fatigue is the sheer amount of time on task. , 1946). Thorndike (1912) estimated that in cognitive tasks of durations up to 2 hr, the maximum degree of impairment was about 10% in performance level.
