comment Can mental exhaustion be measured?
@StevenJeuris 1. If one can measure something accurately, one could take the average performance per day, and that would be my prediction. 2. I thought this was common knowledge, but I am happy to remove it if you do not believe it is.

So, could it then be that the criteria for getting the incentives for non-rudimentary tasks in these experiments were too narrow to enable thinking outside the box? I believe that there is a huge difference between saying that one should solve a customer's problem by utilizing tool X, compared to just saying that one should solve a customer's problem in a way that is maintainable, practical, long-term, etc. The latter way, enables thinking outside the box, while the first one might enable more clear evaluation of success.
