Predictably irrational : the hidden forces that shape our decisions by Dan Ariely ( Book )
63 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This evaluation of the sources of illogical decisions explores the reasons why irrational thought often overcomes level-headed practices, offering insight into the structural patterns that cause people to make the same mistakes repeatedly. In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, the author, a MIT behavioral economist, refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience withgroundbreaking research, he explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities. Not only do we make astonishingly simple mistakes every day, but we make the same types of mistakes, he discovers. We consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. We fail to understand the profound effects of our emotions on what we want, and we overvalue what we already own. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They are systematic and predictable, making us predictably irrational. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, he explains how to break through these systematic patterns of thought to make better decisions. This book offers ways to change the way we interact with the world one small decision at a time
The (honest) truth about dishonesty : how we lie to everyone--especially ourselves by Dan Ariely ( Book )
23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author, a behavioral economist, challenges our preconceptions about dishonesty and urge us to take an honest look at ourselves. We all cheat, whether it is copying a paper in the classroom, or white lies on our expense accounts. Does the chance of getting caught affect how likely we are to cheat? How do companies pave the way for dishonesty? Does collaboration make us more honest or less so? Does religion improve our honesty? Here the author explores how unethical behavior works in the personal, professional, and political worlds, and how it affects all of use, even as we think of ourselves as having high moral standards. He explores the question of dishonesty from Washington to Wall Street, and the classroom to the workplace, to examine why cheating is so prevalent and what can be done to prevent it. None of us is immune, whether it is the white lie to head off trouble or padding our expense reports. Generally, we assume that cheating, like most other decisions, is based on a rational cost-benefit analysis. But the author argues, and then demonstrates, that it is actually the irrational forces that we do not take into account that often determine whether we behave ethically or not. For every Enron or political bribe, there are countless puffed resumes, hidden commissions, and knockoff purses. He shows why some things are easier to lie about; how getting caught matters less than we think; and how business practices pave the way for unethical behavior both intentionally and unintentionally. But all is not lost. The author also identifies what keeps us honest, pointing the way for achieving higher ethics in our everyday lives, and with personal and academic findings, changing the way we see ourselves, our actions, and others
The upside of irrationality : the unexpected benefits of defying logic at work and at home by Dan Ariely ( Book )
29 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How can confusing directions actually help us? Why can large bonuses make CEOs less productive? Why is there such a big difference between what we think will make us happy and what really makes us happy? In his groundbreaking book Predictably Irrational, social scientist Dan Ariely revealed the multiple biases that lead us into making unwise decisions. Now, in The Upside of Irrationality, he exposes the surprising negative and positive effects irrationality can have on our lives. Focusing on our behaviors at work and in relationships, he offers new insights about how one unwise action can become a long-term habit, how we learn to love the ones we're with, and more. From our office attitudes, to our romantic relationships, to our search for purpose in life, Ariely explains how to break through our negative patterns of thought and behavior to make better decisions.--From publisher description

Denken hilft zwar, nützt aber nichts : warum wir immer wieder unvernünftige Entscheidungen treffen by Dan Ariely ( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Warum sind wir beim Anblick eines köstlichen Desserts sofort bereit, unser eisernes Diätgelübde zu brechen? Wieso glauben wir, dass teure Medikamente besser wirken als preiswerte? Und weshalb tun wir uns oft so schwer, uns überhaupt zu entscheiden? Dan Ariely stellt unser Verhalten auf den Prüfstand, um herauszufinden, warum wir uns tatsächlich für vernünftig halten - wo wir doch immer wieder unvernünftig handeln. Wider besseres Wissen greifen wir bei Gratisangeboten gerne zu, auch wenn wir ahnen, dass sie uns meist teuer zu stehen kommen. Wir nehmen für freiwillige Hilfsdienste auch lieber kein Geld als wenig. Welche verborgenen Kräfte unsere Entscheidungen im Großen wie im Kleinen täglich lenken, erklärt der renommierte amerikanische Verhaltensökonom Dan Ariely. Seine verblüffenden Experimente beweisen, dass unser Tun und Lassen höchst berechenbar ist - nämlich berechenbar unvernünftig! Wir verhalten uns in vielen Situationen so, wie wir glauben, dass man es von uns erwartet; wir fallen wissentlich auf Köder herein und lassen uns zu unvernünftigem Handeln verleiten, weil wir im Moment der Entscheidung nicht Herr unseres Verstandes sind. Warum wir dennoch daraus lernen können, wenn wir immer wieder die gleichen Fehler machen, das zeigt uns dieses Staunen machende Buch
