The decision-making process unpacked

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 11 December 2018

We make decision everyday...but how do we do it? We update our preferences in real-time.

That's the finding of a new research which looked at how we make tough decisions, like whether to get chips or chocolate at the dairy. 

It seems instead of being paralysed by indecision when face with two equally appealing option, we construct new values for the options. And that could change the way we think about in the future. 

To unpack this, we speak to author Dr Stefan Bode from the University of Melbourne.
