Slip

Slip

Middle English (in the sense “move quickly and softly”): probably from Middle Low German slippen (verb).

Error resulting from skill-based performance associated with inattention when intention deviates from common practice. Inattention is due to a lowering of the attention threshold in routine tasks, in highly consolidated activities and in familiar situations, such as pressing the wrong key or entering an incorrect figure in an excel file. Drops in attention cause errors of interference, omission, inversion, disorder and perceptual confusion.

Slip-type mistakes are often made by experienced, highly qualified personnel, and additional training does not solve the problem. It is necessary to identify the level of motivation of individuals and understand the source of their stress.
The source of error is vulnerability to stress. And it is related to the way individuals manages their cognitive problems. The problem is not stress itself, but how people manage it mentally. Whenever the ability to manage stress is reduced, the greater the likelihood of distraction or that inadequate strategies are activated for coping with stressful situations.
