Metacognitive Experiences


In the book Metacognition: Core Readings by Thomas Nelson (1992):

... metacognitive experiences are especially likely to occur in situations that stimulate a lot of careful, highly conscious thinking ... in novel roles or situations, where every major step you take requires planning beforehand and evaluation afterwards; where decisions and actions are at once weighty and risky; .... Such situations provide many opportunities for thoughts and feelings about your own thinking to arise and, in many cases, call for the kind of quality control that metacognitive experiences can help supply. ...
