Psychological Research Paper Writing Tricks You Might Want to Consider Using

Nov 26th 2015 at 6:01 AM


You hate the guts of every professor assigning you with a research paper to write.

It’s understandable.

You loathe every line in the task and every work in a topic it suggests you to complete.

Everyone has been there.

But you can’t get an acceptable grade on a subject if you don’t manage your research opuses on time. What’s even worse, some papers won’t even let you finish a course, which leads to getting expelled.

That’s why you should clean up your mind off all the negative thoughts you have regarding this yet another dull research paper and start thinking clearly.

Small portions of writing to elaborate on in the long run

Many careless students make this common mistake. Which one? Take an assignment, put it in a fridge till the eleventh hour and then, three days prior to the submission, get it out and eventually find yourself pulling off hair trying to come up with 20-30 pages in a couple of evenings.

The greater an assignment seems, the more terrifying it is. The brain simply refuses to think straight, looking for an emergency exit instead. That’s why to avoid this pitfall of having to little time left to deal with a task with too many pages to cover you have to split it into small pieces and work on them steadily without any haste. Starting with your paper in advance is highly recommended in such a case. Or a research paper avalanche will smash you.

Rediscover the vacuum cleaner and a duster

What for, are you nuts? No, this is quite a nifty piece of advice. On a psychological level, a clean tidy surrounding tricks a brain to relax, and anxiety to smooth down. As a result, sitting in a sleek orderly room with no dust on a carpet, zero one-week pizza slices on your laptop, spider webbing in the corner of the walls brings out truly classy ideas. It’s simply a paradise for productive writing.

On the contrary, in a piled up room with all your clothes scattered around all you can do is order tons of fast-food and spend the whole evening watching the second season of House of Cards. A great pastime, though, but it has you write zero pages.

Watch a TED speech on motivation, just pick random and watch it


The mother of sloth!

We could’ve discovered interstellar journeys decades ago if we weren’t lazy. We could’ve been a healthier nation if we weren’t drowsy.

Laziness is the road to doing nothing, which is the road to an inglorious life of a couch potato.

Nicola Tesla and Napoleon Bonaparte used to sleep 3-4 hours a day. Because the people weren’t lazy, they wanted to achieve something in life. You entered a college to achieve anything in life, or your parents simply didn’t know where to spend money they earned?

Well, TED is full is motivational speeches like that. Watch some, and your productivity will boost x3 extra pages of research paper writing per sitting.
