FREE READ Ý Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions DOWNLOAD ´ MIAMIMOTELS.US Ã Dan Ariely REVIEW Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions Why do our headaches persist after taking a one cent aspirin but disappear when we take a 50 cent aspirinWhy does recalling the Ten Commandments reduce our tendency to lie even when we couldn't possibly be caughtWhy do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty five cents on a can of soupWhy do we go back for second helpings at the unlimited buffet even when our stomachs are already fullAnd how did we ever start spending 415 on a cup of coffee when just a few years ago we used to pay less than a dollarWhen it comes to making decisions in our live. I asked them why when they persecute men for religion or colour it was seen by the world as oppression and when they persecute women it was dismissed as tradition Emer Martin This book is generally brilliant if you ignore the misogyny It is a book written by a man about a man s world for men The Our in the title does not include half the world The misogny the putting down of fat women ugly ones old ones in this often otherwise insightful and percipient book is making me groan The author is trying to prove something we all know that we he uses we and our to sound inclusive but he only means men really do not make good decisions when sexually aroused To that end he sets up an experiment where the men MIT students will have to answer a set of uestions sober and while they are wanking to pictures of buxom young women flashed on their computersThe uestions include Would you want to have sex with a really fat woman An ugly one A woman over 50 All the undesirable women All these women are put down as sexual objects these really clever guys wouldn t want to have sex with unless they were so aroused by any stimuli they didn t care That their general powers of discernment and decision making ie we don t screw fatugly or old women would go by the board because at that stage they d screw anything Also that in such an aroused state those clever MIT men future leaders of technology and business perhaps even footballers those men might deliberately get a woman drunk andor persist in pushy or downright aggressive sexual advances even after she had said no and they wouldn t give a monkeys about using a condom eitherPart of me wonders how those men felt who had girlfriends who didn t look like supermodelsPersonally I think he wrote up the experiment so as he could begin with describing the visual of a cling film saran wrap to Americans wrapped computer to protect it from splashes of semen flashing porn and uestions and a man furiously wanking with his left hand while propped up on the bed Ok so I m predictably irrational about books that slag off my half the human race You know that I will pick up the misogyny and be compelled to write about it

FREE READ Ý Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions DOWNLOAD ´ MIAMIMOTELS.US Ã Dan Ariely REVIEW Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions Tly overpay underestimate and procrastinate We fail to understand the profound effects of our emotions on what we want and we overvalue what we already own Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless They're systematic and predictable making us predictably irrationalFrom drinking coffee to losing weight from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner Ariely explains how to break through these systematic patterns of thought to make better decisions Predictably Irrational will change the way we interact with the world one small decision at a ti. All classic economic theories are based on the assumption that consumers behave rationally despite a considerable body of evidence to the contrary It is only in the last 25 years that economists have begun to investigate the irrational side of consumer behavior This field of investigation which started with the pioneering work of Tversky and Kahneman is usually referred to as behavioral economics Dan Ariely s book Predictably Irrational offers a clear and comprehensive overview of this fascinating subject If you are the kind of person like me who can t imagine using the words fascinating and economics in the same sentence don t worry the primary focus of the book is human behavior and its peculiarities rather than economic theory In particular the author is concerned with elucidating how and why people continue to engage in behavior patterns that are detrimental in the long termIn thirteen well written chapters Ariely considers such topics as The effect of our need for a reference point before we can judge the value of something and how clever marketers can exploit this How we can become trapped by our own behavior the importance of first decisions How the prospect of getting something free can override reason and logic is it really smart to wait for free entrance night at the museum The effect of social norms why you are likely to agree to help your local charity by working for nothing than for a uarter of your normal professional rate The influence of arousal we behave irrationally in the throes of passion what you can do about it The problems of procrastination and self control Our tendency to place too much value on what we already own The destructive conseuences of people s tendency to want to keep as many options open for as long as possible How our expectations of something can actually influence our ability to enjoy it The power of price response to a 250 placebo is better than that to a 10c placebo In what situations are people particularly likely to behave dishonestly How can the triggers for dishonest behavior be disarmedThe book is based primarily on work that Ariely has done with colleagues at MIT and elsewhere Two features make the book exceptional in my opinionThe ability of Ariely and colleagues to devise really neat experiments to test their hypotheses All of the conclusions in the book are convincingly supported by often remarkably clever experimentsAriely does an extraordinary job of making his material interesting and accessible to a general audience The book was a joy to readI highly recommend Predictably Irrational
