Since I can remember, I have always had a keen interest in how things work. But the mechanics of how things work was ultimately unsatisfying. I wanted to know why things work the way they do. That question of why led me to a career that explores the processes and motivations people have when they make a decision. Are decisions – choices – primarily rational or are they driven by emotional factors. Whether people make decisions through rational processes or emotional impacts so much of our business decisions. It impacts our understanding of economics, how we approach marketing, and what strategies we use to reach out to customers.
This dynamic fascinates me!
