Judgment and Decision Making

Spring 2019

Taught By: Shai Davidai

Section: A

CRN: 3535

Credits: 3

Whether choosing what to have for breakfast, whom to marry, who to vote for, or what career to pursuit, our choices are based on judgments and decisions. In this course we will examine the affective, cognitive, and motivational processes involved in human judgment and decision making. When do the psychological processes involved in judgment and decision lead to accurate judgments and optimal decisions, and when do they fail to do so? What role do emotions play in decision making? Can people become better decision makers? We will cover basic concepts and recent findings on the psychology of judgment and decisions making, learn to assess the quality of empirical research in the field of judgment and decision making, and formulate novel hypotheses.
