The Art and Science of Decision Making
“Mmm….I am not as rational as I thought!”
We all make systematic decision errors. The failure to think clearly (cognitive errors) is a systematic deviation from logic – from optimal, reasonable thought and behaviour. These are not occasional errors in judgement but routine mistakes, barriers to logic, repeating patterns through generations and centuries. It is much more common for us to overestimate our knowledge than that we underestimate it, or the danger of losing something stimulates as much more than the prospect of making a similar gain. In the presence of other people we adjust our behaviour to theirs, not the opposite.
This module will look at some of the most common errors we make and how to minimize making them. We will also explore what drives and motivates us as this is closely linked.
- Anyone wishing to think more clearly and to improve their decision-making capability. To understand what drives and motivates us, decision biases and how to minimize or avoid them.
