Everyday irrationality : how pseudo-scientists, lunatics, and the rest of us systematically fail to think rationally by Robyn M Dawes( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robyn Dawes defines irrationality as adhering to beliefs that are inherently self-contradictory, not just incorrect, self-defeating, or the basis of poor decisions. Such beliefs are unfortunately common. Witness two examples: the belief that child sexual abuse can be diagnosed by observing symptoms typically resulting from such abuse, rather than symptoms that differentiate between abused and non-abused children; and the belief that a physical or personal disaster can be understood by studying it alone in-depth rather than by comparing the situation in which it occurred to similar situations where nothing bad happened. This book first demonstrates how such irrationality results from ignoring obvious comparisons. Such neglect is traced to associational and story-based thinking, while true rational judgment requires comparative thinking. Strong emotion - or even insanity - is one reason for making automatic associations without comparison, but as the author demonstrates, a lot of everyday judgment, unsupported professional claims, and even social policy is based on the same kind of irrationality."--Jacket
Judging merit by Warren Thorngate( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Merit-based tests and contests have become popular methods for allocating rewards - from trophies to contracts, jobs to grants, admissions to licenses. With origins in jurisprudence, methods of rewarding merit seem fairer than those rewarding political or social connections, bribery, aggression, status, or wealth. Because of this, merit-based competitions are well-suited to the societal belief that people should be rewarded for what they know or do, and not for who they know or are; however, judging merit is rarely an easy task - it is prone to a variety of biases and errors. Small biases and errors, especially in large competitions, can make large differences in who or what is rewarded. It is important, then, to learn how to spot flaws in procedures for judging merit and to correct them when possible. Based on over 20 years of theory and research in human judgment, decision making and social psychology, this unique book brings together for the first time what is known about the processes and problems of judging merit and their consequences. It also provides practical suggestions for increasing the fairness of merit-based competitions, and examines the future and limits of these competitions in society."--Jacket

On getting people to cooperate when facing a social dilemma : moralizing helps by Oregon Research Institute( Book )

2 editions published between 1970 and 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subjects played a social dilemma game, with monetary payoffs, in groups of 5-8 individuals. These games involved a choice between earning a small amount of money ($2 to $2.50) for oneself with no fine to other group members and earning a much larger amount ($8 to $12) with an equal fine levied on all other group members. Thus, each individual gained the small amount if all group members cooperated, while all received nothing if all defected, even though defecting is a dominating choice for each player. One-hundred-forty-three subjects in Eugene, Ore., and 56 students at the Univ. of California at Santa Barbara played these games under one of two conditions: (1) the experimenter emphasized at length the moral and ethical implications of making the cooperative or the defecting choice; or (2) the game was explained without any moral or ethical exhortation. In both Eugene and Santa Barbara, the instructions emphasizing the moral and ethical aspects of the choice significantly increased the rate of cooperation, despite the fact that sizeable amounts of money were involved

Behavior, Communication, and Assumptions About Other Peoples' Behavior in a Commons Dilemma Situation by Robyn M Dawes( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two experiments investigated effects of communication on behavior in an 8-person commons dilemma of group versus individual gain. Subjects made a single choice involving a substantial amount of money (possible outcomes ranging from nothing to $10.50). In Experiment 1, 4 communication conditions were crossed with the possibility of losing money (loss, no loss). Subjects chose defecting or cooperating responses and predicted responses of other group members. Results showed defection significantly higher in no communication and irrelevant communication conditions than in relevant communication and relevant communication plus roll call conditions. Loss had no effect on decisions. Defectors expected much more defection than did cooperators. Experiment 2 replicated irrelevant communication and communication effects, and compared predictions of participants with those of observers
