How does our mood affect how cooperatively we act in a situation? Dr. Barbara Mellers, I. George Heyman University Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, joins your host, Executive Director of the Alliance for Decision Education Dr. Joe Sweeney, to talk about the difference between judgments and decisions, studies on what happens when our desires and our sense of fairness are in conflict, and research on how a positive mood might make you act more cooperatively. You’ll also hear about the differences between how we should make decisions, how we actually make decisions, and what we can do to improve our decision-making.
