### Some notes on writing

*Discussion sections*. I usually hate writing discussions. However, I find they are extremely useful for two things. First, for each result (affirming and disconfirming) sincerely asking oneself

*why*the results occurred. Then for each

*why*question, generate explanations and consider the ones I believe the most in detail. Try to find other evidence or ideas that relates to these explanations. This process allows surprises to emerge, changing our questions and explanations, but also allows us to build stories around the evidence. These stories can be used to push the theory further.

*Future Directions.*Future directions should be based on understanding the processes and theory, pushing them forward, rather than trying to find new contexts. Process rather than context driven.

*For prescriptions.*The prescriptions should either refine existing proposals based on the results of the experiments (descriptive research), distinguish among existing proposals, or develop new ones.
