Zeigarnik Effect - PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki

Zeigarnik Effect - PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki: "The Zeigarnik Effect is the tendency to experience intrusive thoughts about an objective that was once pursued and left incomplete (Baumeister & Bushman, 2008, pg. 122). The automatic system signals the conscious mind, which may be focused on new goals, that a previous activity was left incomplete. It seems to be human nature to finish what we start and, if it is not finished, we experience dissonance."

I did not know this had a name.  I experience this everyday.
