We, humans, are the most successful species the planet has ever seen, yet our decision making can often be misled. Psychologists’ understanding of our (typically efficient) use of information enables the prediction of situations in which decisions can be misled. In this talk, I demonstrate phenomena from the psychology of decision making, which can adversely affect the decisions we make. From exploring the routes of these phenomena, I offer some simple tips for improving decision making.

The psychological phenomena introduced in this talk are general. Consequently, they can affect decision making in any situation: from grocery shopping to aeronautics; from credit card repayments to legal decisions in the courtroom. The talk will include specific examples such as these, in addition to real-time demonstrations.

Dr Adam Harris is a Senior Lecturer in Experimental Psychology at University College London. Adam carries out original psychological research in the area of judgment and decision making. He has published papers on a variety of topics in this area, including the anchoring effect and the psychology of credit card repayments, which are both featured in this talk. He is director of UCL’s MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences and has delivered courses on improving expert decision making on the UEFA Pro License course for football management at St George’s Park.
