I’ve been devoting some of my time to studying behavioral economics and phycology. I’m beginning to understand how people are influenced, and – at least, to a certain extent – why people do what they do.
My fascination with human behavior began when I realized how easily people could be manipulated. I had one of those Scott Adams moments (unlike him, however, I’m a bad cartoonist, so don’t expect to see any comic strips by me anytime soon). I decided to dive headfirst into the broad subject of human behavior.
Knowing that I wanted to learn more about what makes people “tick”, I decided to start reading books, watching lectures, and listening to interviews; and over the past few weeks, I’ve learned more than I ever expected.
Here are just a few of the things I’ve been studying:
- Freudian Phycology.
- Decision Point Theory.
Of course, this list may not sound all that impressive, but it really encompasses a lot. The practical usage is life changing. Hopefully, I’ll have time to write in-depth articles about each of them in the future.
