my life!

Roger Schank
Psychologist and computer scientist; author, "Designing World-Class E-Learning"

"Irrational choices.
I do not believe that people are capable of rational thought when it comes to making decisions in their own lives. People believe they are behaving rationally and have thought things out, of course, but when major decisions are made - who to marry, where to live, what career to pursue, what college to attend, people's minds simply cannot cope with the complexity. When they try to rationally analyze potential options, their unconscious, emotional thoughts take over and make the choice for them."

aaah at least my frantic, dramatically stressful life is justified by science. i hope mr. shank here is speaking with his psychologist hat on...i don't think i could take it if the essence of my life and inability to make decisions comes from a computer scientist!
