The Role of Optimism in Decision-Making
Herman vd Berg
How does optimism influence decision-making?
 

 
Optimism in Making Decisions
Jaap de Jonge, Innovation Consultant, Netherlands
Interesting question Herman... I believe there are many ways:
- One is related to organizational pressure (only the best proposals make it, so we present our projects overoptimistic).
- Another thing is we know that quite often in (organizational) cultures optimists are being regarded and rewarded higher than pessimists (tough-guy macho culture).
- Thirdly, our brain may be fooling us. For example the bandwagon effect and being overconfident about our ability to control outcomes.
I suspect there many more ways? Who joins in the discussion?
