Task Predictability is a term which is widely used in scientific researches (involving humans or animals) aimed to study how human’s mind and brains of other living beings can learn in conditions of repeatable tasks, and hence react to predictable things in terms of productivity and performance. In a result of different experiments it was proved that if certain repeating task (from a sequence of tasks) was accompanied with a positive feedback (rewarded), then such a mental fixation stimulates both the animals and humans to remember and anticipate that task with better results: they feel to be more interested in completing that task, and aspire to learn faster when requirements of that task get changed.
In other words, the repeatable (predictable) tasks are met with a greater zeal, interest, enthusiasm, and productivity when they are accompanied by positive impressions or useful rewards. In a result of experiments, through controlling certain physiological and psychological manifestations, it was proved that learning mechanisms of living beings are stimulated by rewarding their efforts. It spite of these experiments, it was well known from ancient times that the best worker is:
- A well-rewarded worker;
- A worker who benefits from good work planning;
