Why we make the decisions we make

Two TED talks to watch during your next coffee breaks:

The riddle of experience vs. memory, by Daniel Kahneman.
This talk is not about system 1 and system 2 (thinking fast and slow), but about our experiencing self vs. our remembering self. Or how we choose to spend our vacations.

Are we in control of our own decisions? by Dan Ariely.
Or how you might think twice next time you buy something. Or next time a friend invites you to go clubbing with them.
