CX Design Wins A Nobel Prize

Experience Matters

Thaler often collaborated with another behavioral economist (and one of my favorite economists of all time), Daniel Kahneman, who won a Nobel Prize in 2002. In case you missed it, Richard Thaler won the Nobel Prize in Economics. He’s a well-known behavioral economist and author of the popular book Nudge. You may have seen Thaler in this scene from The Big Short where he and Selena Gomez explain a financial instrument called a synthetic collateralized debt obligation (CDO).

I thought that people would dislike stereotypically masculine (e.g., ambitious) women and feminine (e.g., sensitive) men, but try to hide it—so I measured their emotional reactions using facial EMG.

3 Ways Customers’ Minds Plays Tricks on Them

Beyond Philosophy

In “ Thinking Fast and Slow ,” Professor Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences recipient in 2002, explores why our mind plays tricks on us. I often say people are irrational, but only because they are. We all do irrational things. We like to think we make logical decisions based on rational thinking all the time, but we don’t. The truth is, your mind plays tricks on you every day, and many times, it’s in one of three ways.
