I wish more TED talk videos would include a discussion at the end, because that's where the proposed ideas are tested, scrutinised, and criticised by other great minds. It helps you put things in perspective. Often, stories sound too good to be true, and appear to have perfect logic, simply because you are not questioning them as you listen. Having an audience full of TED attendees do that for you and hearing what they have to say really adds to the experience.

personally, i'd go as far as to say that this might be one of the more important TED talks released, & should have more views. dan's explanations on bad decision making IMO is just so incredibly fundamental to how all humans on this earth behave & respond, and understanding these behaviors could def. lead us to a more peaceful world.. his words during the talk at the video's end about "terrorism" i think are ENOURMOUSLY important insights for people today in actually dealing w/ matters like this

I wonder if part of the reason why people choose the $50 now vs. the $60 in a month is less about impatience and more about certainty. What if the subject forgets to pick up the $60 or the source of the money skips down or goes bankrupt? This factor may not enter into the parameters of the thought experiment but it could subconsciously influence the subjects decision. 'A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush' if you will.

Good point. It could still be an error, but it is a learned response, as well as an evolutionary one. For early humans it was more likely that "tomorrow may never come.' For us, we may have learned not to trust. If you get that $50 now, you KNOW you've got it. If you wait, there is still uncertainty. - So it's not JUST impatience.

Yeah, that's an incredibly bad way to gauge intelligence. The "right" answer is subjective for each individual given the context -- their current financial status or use for the money. It is a matter of significance for many -- would you prefer 5 cents now or 6 cents in 6 months? As it is an insignificant value, most people wouldn't care for either amount, let alone waiting for one. For most people, the difference of $10 is negligible, even if the difference is 20% more. Also, while many wouldn't be able to gain more than 20% interest in a month, it is wrong to assume no one can. Another reason for preferring the money sooner could be the anticipation of a "time sensitive" deal offering more than 20% savings (assuming the availability of the extra money was the catalyzing factor for the purchase). Could having an extra $50 now help you avoid a $30 late fee in some bill? In other words, the "right" answer is different for each individual case, especially as the question is phrased in a manner where the individual is expected to consider their current circumstances.

I agree with this point. The speaker talks about the importance of context a lot during decision making and this clearly is a relevant context. Another thought, if you change the number to $5000 and $6000 respectively, I wonder whether that will make a difference.

However, on the $50 vs $60 question... you didn’t mention the factor of control. If you offered me money now or money later, I would take the money now and run. The $10 sacrifice, even accounting for interest, is insignificant to me because a lot can happen in a month, and you might not actually pay up. So the choice of payment now ensures that I actually get something. Something to think about. Thanks!

It doesn't really matter the reason. If the decision to wait a month were rational, then it wouldn't matter if that month were now or in a year from now. If the certainty of getting the money a month earlier is worth the cost, then it's worth that cost regardless of whether that month is now or later.

Your final point "ensures that I actually get something" was my reason for choosing to go to the play after losing the ticket. If I already spent $20 on the play then I'm gonna see the play even if it's gonna cost me $40 I want to get something for the money I've already spent. If I lost one of 2 $20s then I might see the play or I might not. I haven't spent any money on it so then I've got to decide if it's worth my last $20.

Once again, fabulous speaker, fascinating subject! On the lottery ticket purchase, I figure the fantasy of winning is worth $1 in itself. Also, at that point, my odds of winning are basically the same as the person's who will eventually win. But because I know the odds of winning are astronomical, it's the reason I will only purchase 1 ticket; you have to play to win. (It works for me!)

It's still a good example. His point is that the thing you're more able to recall is the thing you'll predict as more likely to happen. For the vast majority of people, it's easier to recall words based on the first letter. Even though your first thought was different from most people's, you confirmed the theory that your prediction of probability correlates with how quickly the idea comes to mind.

This is the kind of TED talk that you learn a lot from, but you need to watch over and over to make it stick.

This was very inciteful and logical. The first 10 minutes already had a lot of interesting stuff, and it doesn't even seem to have anything to do with the title.

That guy from the crowd that made a comment at the end seemed to be really pissed that he referred to the lottery as a stupid tax. Haha.

its an interesting proposition, to cancel out money and i think your point raises two questions which i think we might consider. firstly, should we continue to do something even though we have grown tired and have come to hate it? that to me seems very counter intuitive to free will secondly, if we completely remove money from all systems, what would trade of items be based on? could that possibly be a new form of currency that emerges in such a situation?

That psychologist dismantled the economist view points and arguments. Which shows we are to evaluate situations in all the components of the human mind first before coming up with a conclusion to make a speech on any specific topic.

Those kinds of laws aren’t invented - they’re part of nature already, but it takes a very smart person to see them and describe them.

Love the finish, well done: "The only things that can destroy us are own decisions... if we are not here in 10000 years, its going to be because we could not take advantage of the gift given to us by a young Dutch fellow, in 1738 .. because we underestimated the odds of our future pains and overestimated the value of our present pleasures"
