Living Life, Making Choices - Home | Facebook

The full details of what Pou did, and why, may never be known. But the arguments she is making about disaster preparedness — that medical workers should be virtually immune from prosecution for good-faith work during devastating events and that lifesaving interventions, including evacuation, shouldn’t necessarily go to the sickest first — deserve closer attention. This is particularly important as health officials are now weighing, with little public discussion and insufficient scientific evidence, protocols for making the kind of agonizing decisions that will, no doubt, arise again.

There are lots of choices we must make in life

As Christians we are to develop the attributes of Christ and become like Him. Because much of our personalities are formed through our choices, we have to make new choices to let go of the old nature and receive the new. Our new natures are formed by the truths from the Word of God. The healing of the soul, which is a cleansing process, takes place as we learn to study the Word and develop a close fellowship with the Lord through prayer.

Prescriptive theories of choice such as SEU arecomplemented by empirical research that shows how people actuallymake decisions (purchasing insurance, voting for politicalcandidates, or investing in securities), and research on theprocesses people use to solve problems (designing switchgear orfinding chemical reaction pathways). This research demonstratesthat people solve problems by selective, heuristic search throughlarge problem spaces and large data bases, using means-endsanalysis as a principal technique for guiding the search. Theexpert systems that are now being produced by research onartificial intelligence and applied to such tasks as interpretingoil-well drilling logs or making medical diagnoses are outgrowthsof these research findings on human problem solving.

The nature of their choices, the reasons behind their decisions, and the results that followed affected them greatly....

Should I break up -- or get married?

It might seem easier sometimes to think about life in the olden days or life in a monastery in some religion in which possessions are few, but few of us would really choose to go there for long. We’d miss all our favorite things, all those things we once chose. Besides maybe our goal ought to be not having fewer choices, but allowing others more. That we can do by making good decisions about how we use our world and the things in it for all our benefit.

Some people have trouble with making decisions because they have trouble setting priorities. To them every choice looks about the same, and there is no way to tell what makes one better than another. Some of these folks then impulsively pick a choice. This results in poor judgment since they pick the choice that stood out in some way - it was novel or interesting or highly stimulating but not necessarily helpful. Others can’t pick anything at all because they feel they have no basis for picking. Both groups of people need help in learning how to weigh pros and cons, look at practical aspects, see the longer-term advantages, or note the big picture. Prioritizing into different types of categories can be helpful. Rank order choices by feasibility. Put them in order of how much fun they will be to do.

The Prisoner's Dilemma game illustrates animportant point that is beginning to be appreciated by those whodo research on decision making. There are so many ways in whichactual human behavior can depart from the SEU assumptions thattheorists seeking to account for behavior are confronted with anembarrassment of riches. To choose among the many alternativemodels that could account for the anomalies of choice, extensiveempirical research is called for--to see how people do make theirchoices, what beliefs guide them, what information they haveavailable, and what part of that information they take intoaccount and what part they ignore. In a world of limitedrationality, economics and the other decision sciences mustclosely examine the actual limits on rationality in order to makeaccurate predictions and to provide sound advice on publicpolicy.

Central to the body of prescriptive knowledge aboutdecision making has been the theory of subjective expectedutility (SEU), a sophisticated mathematical model of choice thatlies at the foundation of most contemporary economics,theoretical statistics, and operations research. SEU theorydefines the conditions of perfect utility-maximizing rationalityin a world of certainty or in a world in which the probabilitydistributions of all relevant variables can be provided by thedecision makers. (In spirit, it might be compared with a theoryof ideal gases or of frictionless bodies sliding down inclinedplanes in a vacuum.) SEU theory deals only with decision making;it has nothing to say about how to frame problems, set goals, ordevelop new alternatives.
