Since this week has been about some behavioral science/decision making stuff, I couldn't pass up this Dan Ariely guest post on Brett Favre's retirement decision process at Econgirl's site. Sports fans will enjoy the interactive graphic.
Those who haven't seen it should watch the 17-minute TED talk by Dan Ariely where he asks "Are we in control of our own decisions?"
Thoughts and observations for those investing on their own or contemplating doing it themselves.

I always enjoy the drama of the Favre decision..... I expect him to play this year, but it will probably be his last. But it is hard to get used to him in anything but a Packer uniform.ReplyDelete
I don't know why and how he does it. He takes a tremendous beating.ReplyDelete
Even if he DOES make a decision, he probably won't stick to it. Almost as bad as Jordan. I love Favre, but man... :)
