In the eye-tracking experiment presented in this video it was observed how people make choices in different environments. The results show that people adapt their decision behavior only gradually to different situations and do not switch between different strategies, as often hypothesized. As ANDREAS GLÖCKNER explains this new single-strategy model fits reality better and thus is apt to produce insights for public policy. It leads to better answers on how to make better choices, how to avoid decision traps, and which information people need to make good decisions.


Andreas Glöckner is a Senior Research Fellow and Professor of Psychological Assessment, Judgement and Decision Making, at the Georg August University Göttingen, Germany. Between 2007 and 2013, Glöckner was the leader of the Max Planck Research Group ‘Intuitive Experts’.

Glöckner’s research focus is on the decision making process in both individuals, as well as in groups and organizations. He also uses his theoretical research to consult on matters of human resource development and personnel assessment. Glöckner aims to provide new knowledge on how to make better choices.


University of Hagen (FernUniversität in Hagen)

"The FernUniversität in Hagen – University of Hagen - is the only state-maintained distance teaching university in the German-speaking countries and regions. They benefit from our modern distance education system which combines pedagogically well prepared study units with individual support, net-based co-operation in seminars and working groups, online communication offers and face-to-face sessions (Blended Learning). Contact and contact persons for the students are to be found on the main campus at Hagen as well as at the around 30 study centres in Germany, Austria and Central and Eastern Europe. Since we offer a real alternative to on-campus studies with high-quality final degrees (Bachelor, Master and Doctorate), we particularly also stand for the trend towards lifelong learning. That is why about 80,000 students have chosen to study with us." ( Source )
