The paradox of choice (part 1)


We make so many decisions every day, most of them small and inconsequential. We decide what to wear, what to eat and how to spend our money. And then there are the bigger decisions: should we have children? Should we relocate to another country?

That’s to say, making choices is a part of everyday life. 

This is the first of three advanced lessons dealing with decision-making. The texts ask these questions: is it possible to have TOO MANY alternatives? Why are we so TERRIBLE at decision-making? (Well, some of us more than others.)

This first lesson is based on this article by The Huffington Post: When Freedom Of Choice No Longer Sets Us Free

I hope you find this topic interesting and relatable!
