How Power Corrupts the Mind

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

While at Columbia University, Andy J. Yap set up a simple experiment. After manipulating his subjects into powerful or weak states (in the lab, psychologists are the most powerful ones of all), Yap asked them to guess the height and weight of others both in person and from photographs.

“When people feel powerful or feel powerless, it influences their perception of others,” said Yap, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at MIT.  According to their understanding, we judge the power of others relative to our own: When we feel powerful, others appear less so –and powerlessness and smallness often go together in our minds.

Can neuroscience teach us anything about music?

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

The link they sent me seemed a suitably challenging concept. The talk is called ‘Neuroscience and the Mystery of Music‘. According to the preamble the talk challenges the ability of neuroscience to tell us anything about the nature of how our minds react to music. ‘Can neuroscience reveal the purpose of art? Raymond Tallis explains why our love for music remains beyond science’s grasp’.

Behavioural economics versus data analytics – Deloitte Customer UK

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

I don’t trust surveys. We shouldn’t be asking people for their opinion. We should be trying to understand how they actually behave when faced with a real decision”
