Mind-wandering is the process of having task- unrelated thoughts. These thoughts can have both positive and negative effects during certain tasks. The contents of task-unrelated thoughts can vary between lightweight daydreaming and the more emotionally loaded rumination which we also take into consideration. Two experiments were per- formed to look at the differences between adaptive mind-wandering and executive failure: a Working Memory (WM) task and a Choice Reaction Time (CRT) task. The WM task was set up in a way that constant attention was required, while the CRT task did not need as much continuous involvement. Results showed a significant difference in how much participants were on-task between WM and CRT. On average, participants paid more attention dur- ing the WM task. Two models were built to de- scribe this mechanically, one for the CRT task and one for the WM task.
