by Patrick O’Shaughnessy

My guest this week is with Annie Duke, and the topic of our
discussion is how to improve decision making.

We break decisions down into their component parts: values,
beliefs, decisions, randomness, and outcomes. After diving into each, we
discuss how to make better decisions, how to work in group settings, and how to
harness power of tribes and identity to improve our behavior.

Annie has thought about this as much as anyone, and her various
tricks for getting us to think in probabilities and to stop evaluating
decisions based on outcomes that have been tainted by randomness will be useful
for anyone listening.

Please enjoy.
