Predictably Irrational


books, economics, Random Links / Thursday, March 6th, 2008

‘Predictably Irrational’ is a book about the choices we make, and the tricks our mind plays on us, when we are making those choices. Promises to be an interesting read, in the meanwhile you can test your rationality in the Door Game.

Let me know how you fared. Modesty prevents me from telling you that I scored more in the second part than the first. Damn, my mind is playing tricks on me again.

  1. Hey! The new site is much more pleasing on the eye (for some reason black backgrounds make it hard for those who wear glasses)

    Anyhow I played the game, but have contest one of its assumptions: I would prefer to re-order those tests.Have the stable one first, so that you warm the user to whats the game about and then shrink it later. The problem of doing it other way is that users dont have time to leanr and the stability ensures they know and understand..Poor design of the test IMHO
