Predicting Moral Judgments of Corporate Responsibility with Formal Decision Heuristics

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

We address the questions (1) how moral decision-making can
be formally modeled using established decision models and
(2) which of these models are the most accurate in predicting
moral judgments. We conducted an experiment with a
comparison task in which people had to decide which of two
companies behaved more fairly in dealing with the
consequences of the current financial crisis. We modeled
these judgments of fairness (i) using a compensatory
weighted additive model (WADD), (ii) a unit weight linear
heuristic (UWL), and (iii) a noncompensatory decision rule
(LEX). All strategies could predict people’s actual decisions
above chance level for a majority of the subjects. This lends
support to the modeling approach to moral decision-making

Good judgments do not require complex cognition – Julian N. Marewski • Wolfgang Gaissmaier • Gerd Gigerenzer

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

What cognitive capabilities allow Homo sapiens to successfully bet on the stock market, to catch balls in baseball games, to accurately predict the outcomes of political elections, or to correctly decide whether a patient needs to be allocated to the coronary care unit? It is a widespread belief in psychology and beyond that complex judgment tasks require complex solutions. Countering this common intuition, in this article, we argue that in an uncertain world actually the opposite is true: Humans do not need complex cognitive strategies to make good inferences, estimations, and other judgments; rather, it is the very simplicity and robustness of our cognitive repertoire that makes Homo sapiens a capable decision maker

Intro to Behavioral Economics

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

In the 21st century, the toolkit of the modern designer is rapidly expanding. Design practice is maturing, and what was once a focus on aesthetics and usability is broadening to incorporate interdisciplinary knowledge from a variety of fields like behavioral economics and cognitive psychology. These disciplines shed light on the factors that impact human decision-making and motivate our behaviors.
