Each 'Choose-day' we will investigate the process by which we can reassess our activity and interaction with the world of plurality and become more congruent within our personality.
Here is fourth in the TED talks series on different views on the subject of choice.
Today a talk from Prof Baba Shiv on surrendering our responsibility in decision making. This is not for the small stuff. He is talking about the big life stuff. Why share this particular video? This is not the place to discuss medical ethics, the pros and cons of treatment or such. What is interesting here, though, is the research this neuro-economist did to determine how we go about decision making. There arose evidence that certain circumstances brought better decision making where surrender was given to 'the expert' in the circumstance.
Which brings us to our point here at AV-blog… when it comes to improving our spirito-philosophical decision making, are we best left to our own recognizance ('agency'), or are we likely to have improved outcomes from following the 'prescription' of the Guru?
