A Note to Readers

Dear readers, friends, and social science enthusiasts,

Welcome to the revised and expanded edition of Predictably Irrational.

Since my early days as a patient in the burn department,* I have been acutely aware that humans engage in actions and make decisions that are often divorced from rationality, and sometimes very far from ideal. Over the years I’ve tried to understand the silly, dumb, odd, amusing, and sometimes dangerous mistakes we all make, in the hope that by understanding our irrational quirks, we can retrain ourselves to make better decisions.

My theoretical and applied interest in irrationality has guided me to the emerging field of behavioral economics, where I’ve embraced these quirks as a fundamental element of human behavior. In my research, I’ve looked at a range of human foibles, asking questions such as these: Why do we get overexcited when something is FREE!? What role do emotions play in our decisions? How does procrastination play games with us? What are the functions of our strange social norms? Why do we hang on to false beliefs despite evidence to the contrary? Trying to answer these questions has provided me with endless hours of fun, and the new understanding that it brought has changed my professional and personal life.

It’s been satisfying to try to understand why we act the way we do, and fun to share our findings with people who have also wondered about their own decisions.

 

NEVERTHELESS, BEFORE THE financial crisis of 2008, I’d hit a lot of roadblocks when trying to expand on the implications of our ideas, experiments, and findings. For example, after I gave a presentation at a conference, a fellow I’ll call Mr. Logic (a composite of many people I have debated with over the years) buttonholed me.

“I enjoy hearing about all the different kinds of small-scale irrationalities that you demonstrate in your experiments,” he told me, handing me his card. “They’re quite interesting—great stories for cocktail parties.” He paused. “But you don’t understand how things work in the real world. Clearly, when it comes to making important
