The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions

In "Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions", a New York Times bestseller, Dan Ariely shares the result of several experiments he and his colleagues conducted to refute this common assumption. He cites several examples showing that we consistently behave in irrational ways. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable—making us predictably irrational.
