Re-Read Saturday News

Chapter 35, titled Two Selves, begins Section Five.  Kahneman starts this chapter by discussing the concept of experienced utility. Berridge and O’Doherty define experienced utility as “the hedonic or pleasurable experience produced by the outcome when eventually gained.” A person that was attempting to maximize experienced utility would make decisions that yield the most pleasure over other attributes.

SPaMCAST 582 will feature our interview with Paul Gibbons.  We discussed his new book Impact. Along the way, we talked about biases and more importantly about de-biasing. This is the second book in the series he began with  The Science of Successful Organization Change which we discussed on SPaMCAST 480. That was a good interview  . . . this one is better!
