Play Dan Ariely's Irrational Game
Remote learning | For our partners' teams

In this thought provoking, social and game-based session — we'll examine the intricacies of human behaviour by playfully predicting the decisions we make.

How well can you predict human nature? This is a question asked by Dan Ariely — professor of Psychology an Behavioural Economics at Duke University, and author of Predictably Irrational, Amazing Decisions and many other books too.

In his highly playable and thought provoking game 'Irrational', Dan challenges us to dig into the nuance of human nature and the degree to which we believe ourselves to be rational. The goal of the game is to second-guess human nature by predicting decisions people will make in unique situations, revealed as the game progresses.

How did writing down the Ten Commandments affect students' cheating habits?
Do incentives affect donations?
How did acts of gratitude influence the wellbeing of children?

The answers are backed up by research, and shown alongside explanations outlining why we do the things we do. Probably the best part of playing the game is the discussion that it sparks, and how we as players can use what's revealed in the answers to better understand the decisions we make — and the ways we can positively influence how others decide too.

On the afternoon of Friday 24th April, we'll be virtually bringing a group together for a 60 minute virtual playing of this game, collectively and then breaking into small discussion groups — and would love for you to join in. This is intended for anyone interested in the field of behavioural economics, and those keen to get a better sense of some of the irrational factors that sit behind decisions large and small.
