Humans aim to change their environment, including their social environment, in intended ways. In other words, humans act in a goal-oriented manner, be the goal simple, like grasping an object, or more complex, like guiding another person. Successful goal-oriented action rests on various cognitive prerequisites (e.g., mentally representing goals, choosing among behavioral options) and comes with various consequences (e.g. errors). A comprehensive study of goal-oriented action requires multifaceted methods, including behavioral experiments, modelling, or eye-tracking.
