Most of us assume that confidence and certainty are preferred over uncertainty when it comes to learning complex information. But a new study shows that confusion when learning can be beneficial if it is properly induced, effectively regulated and ultimately resolved.
This study is much similar to the theme of Desirable difficulty hypothesis by Robert Bjork. Here confusion can be caused by the effort on problem solving.
