Sample text

I remembered some of the bad news I got while in hospital, and I tried to work out how best to break bad news to patients. There were many other topics that crossed the personal/professional boundary, and over time I learned more and more about my own decisions and the behaviours of those around me. This was more than twenty-five years ago and since then I have dedicated most of my time to trying to better understand human nature, focusing mostly on where we make mistakes and what can be done to improve our decisions, actions, and outcomes.

As I made my first steps back into the reality that I once took for granted, my viewpoint expanded to include more mundane daily activities such as the way we shop, drive, volunteer, interact with colleagues, take risks, fight, and behave thoughtlessly. And, of course, I could not help but notice the intricate fibre that governs romantic life. With this perspective, I turned to study psychology. Very soon my personal and professional life became deeply intertwined. I remembered placebo medications for pain, and I conducted experiments to better understand the effects of expectations on painful treatments.

Some of these are deeply misguided but even when these models are wrong, they are often interesting and sometimes useful. Framing marriage as a gamble is a great example of an economic perspective that is both misguided and useful. Describing a deep social and romantic bond as a bet one would place at the bookies leaves much of human relationship in the gutter (the misguided part), but it also emphasizes the large potential for loss, which people often don’t take into account when they decide to get married (the useful part).
