Join this interactive session as we journey into the world of decision making...

Do people make good decision makers?

Every day we make numerous decisions. Is it better to deliberate or to go with your first instincts? Join our psychology lecturers as we take a look at some of the cognitive mechanisms that help us to make decisions. Plus, we explore how to evaluate our decisions. After all, a decision is only good or bad in the context of how we review it.
