Today is the eighth episode of The Daily Decision

In the last episode, we learned that normative descriptive making theories assume that a perfect person can make perfect decisions.

But reality is different.

Which is why we have Descriptive Decision-Making Theories

That capture actual decisions people make and the types of decisions, right or wrong, that people tend to make.

For example, why do people in their dating preferences often choose people who counter their best instincts even when they know the better decisions?

Why do people use harmful drugs (legal and illegal) even when Β they know they are harmful?

If we can’t be perfect decision makers, can we at least improve our decision making?

As always, Happy Deciding.

Today is the seventh episode of The Daily Decision

In the last episode, we learned that theories help explain phenomenon and they can be tested.

We learned that decision making has three theories

  1. Normative
  2. Descriptive
  3. Prescriptive

Normative decision making assumes that a person is perfectly rational and a person who is able to measure with perfect accuracy any decision.

This assumes that a person has the time, money, energy, and mental faculties (think sleep) to make a perfect decision.

If you’re asking yourself why have such a theory if it’s impossible to make a perfect decision, it’s because by theorizing a perfect decision, we can begin to compare them to actual decisions.

As always, Happy Deciding.
